#help 💚 My #tigeraloe has a weak stem. 😳 What can I do to fix it? Should I cut it? It looks like the plant has new roots and babies but without support it will fall over and break 😟 Any advice is much appreciated 🙏🥰 #plantadvice #partridgebreastedaloe #aloe #succulent #succulentadvice #aloevariegata #gonialoevariegata

Maybe put a small stick in and tie it to it for now. Is it receiving enough light and your not overwatering it right? I mean it is top heavy u know . if worse comes to worse can head chop it and reroot the top part and then u will grow new from the stump and you'll have more

Thank you Heather 🙏💕 I will tie the stick to it for now 😃 Yes its receiving plenty of light and im not overwatering 😊 I think maybe it got some damage when it was a small plant... @heatherdirtyhands

Its weird because it started out pretty much all stem u know what I mean like the big top part would be what u see sitting at the dirt level. Not sure if that made sense

I understand what you mean 😃 @heatherdirtyhands its really strange 🤔 I think if I cut it where the roots are (on the damaged part of the stem) and put it in new soil it will be more in the dirt, as you say. 😊 Maybe it will become stronger? 🤷‍♀️

If there are already roots on the stem heck ya it will be. Also the stump will begin growing as well so u will have 2 plants which is always better than 1
