Q.Should I cut the lower leaves off my flowering aloe vera ?

I have several mature flowering aloe veras and the leaves / limbs are growing down ward and out of the pot making it difficult to water it . Should I trim these off to the point where the remaining leaves are pointing up or just leave them alone ?

Does it need to be repotted? If the leaves are healthy I would not cut them off. If the bottom leaves are wilted, yellowed or dying, cut them off close to the base of the plant.

Here a link to several articles about Aloe plant care:
