Repotted this aloe today. I had it in a clay pot, but it always looked thirsty and stressed and not very pretty compared to its neighbors in glazed pots. Hopefully now it'll plump up and the greens will green back up.

@crabby58 thanks!! I can't remember what I had in the planter previously, but it died and it's been sitting empty for a long time, and just happened to be the size I needed for this plant. 😂 The aloe is normally a lot prettier, with vibrant green leaf centers, so I hope it gets back to looking that way soon. 🤞

@txgardener mine have looked like this for a couple years, so I just figured it's about time to let them be pretty again. There's a bunch of pups hiding in there, so they haven't actually been unhappy! 😅 @sunlovin thanks! I like using white pots bc they let the plants stand out and speak for themselves. 😁 @crabby58 sounds good! I'll get it mailed in the next few days so it gets to you next week!
