Aloe Please Help!

Okay. I got an aloe plant about a month ago. I water it once a week or once every two weeks. It has good drainage. The roots are the white color they are suppost to be. The aloe has just recently started to smell bad and has dents in its leaves. The inside is yellow too. I have no idea what might be wrong with it. I just changed the soil today hoping that will help. Please help!

Welcome to the forum! :)

It's possible that you might be overwatering it. They are desert plants, and the soil needs to dry between waterings.

Could you post a picture of your aloe? If you need instructions for that, you can find them [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3724]here[/url]. :)
