I NEED HELP W/ ALOE PLANT !!!

I just got 3 aloe leafs and a roots ( like a little piece not the whole stem ) in the mail. When i open it up they were soggy and dark green and droopy :roll: so I listen to google and put it in a pot with a hole at the bottom; I use like cactus soil btw . I'm new to this so i don't know if i should damp the soil or wait a few days after attempting to regrow the plant.


Thanks so much :-()

Re: I NEED HELP W/ ALOE PLANT !!!

Welcome to the forum. Pics would help. If the plants were soggy I would have contacted the provider and demanded a refund. Aloe should not be soggy. There is little root system. The "leaves" should be bright and firm. NEVER soggy. You were ripped off.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

When was it mailed? With the cold weather we've been having I'd say the plants were frozen in transit.
