The Q&A Archives: Aloe Vera Plant

Question: Black on end of plant were perfect and growing all of a sudden they are turning blac like on the ends

Answer: I can't tell from your description whether there is a fungal disease or if you are overwatering the aloe. Both conditions will cause the same symptoms. Aloe can go for weeks without water, even in the sunshine. You can try cutting off the black parts of the leaves to get rid of the problem. Be sure to adjust your watering schedule, too. Best wishes with your aloe.
