My aloe plant just won't stay standing up. My friend (who knows nothing about plants and is just taking a guess) says that I need to water it more. The plant needs more water to hold in each branch in order to stand up. I had it in my kitchen window and it grew like a weed. I've tried tying the largest stalks together to hold them up but that didn't help much. A girl at work had a HUGE aloe plant that only a branch or two would fall over but she had hers tied together also. Her plant was about 3 feet tall. Is there anything that can be done for this or is that just what happens to them?

lxygurl, that is just what happens to them. i have never seen an upright aloe that was not tied or staked up. but, if it is growing like a weed, DON'T CHANGE THE WATERING SCHEDULE! it is happy with you if it is growing that well, enjoy it!

guess is a nature thing.I know the plant is getting all it needs.it does look weird.the ones in house are not doing that but is just 2 and a small baby who is growing stright up but may be soil all around it .i grow mine in ground in summer but in house for a few winter months was going to just cover but one frost covered made the tips wilty so dug and parked.
