Well know at the stem of my plants leaves it look like it almost ( I know it sounds funny ) bleeding. It is leeking something that is red and leaves are starting to turn red as well.Know I have it home and in a wram place. Does anybody have any ideas to help me out?

What kind of aloe is it? I don't know about the 'bleeding', did something break the leaf? A lot of aloes are supposed to turn red in the sun. It's a good thing when they do, means they're getting enough sun. Most aloe can survive a light frost, some down to ~20F at night as long as it gets ubove freezing in the days. All can survive no frost [Wink] and almost all like a LOT of sun. has good aloe descriptions to figure out what species you've got.

may God bless the WHOLE world!

I see you are from Colorado Springs and I bet you have seen some pretty cold weather there. I suspect cold damage to your Aloe.

Remove the damaged portions as they will not recover.

Let the soil get a bit drier than usual. Provide lots of sun and keep temps above 60 degrees.

Yeah we do get some cold weather here that is for sure.Also something I did not notice until just the other day with the plant is that under the leaves there is this white moldy loooking web over the leaves .I have bougth some indoor miracle grow plant food bu the red in the leaves have spread at this point.

Hi Sarah,

No plant food for ailing plants. It is not medicine.

The white stuff may be mealybugs. Spray it with a solution of alcohol and water with a litte liquid soap.
