Aloe vera loves bright sunshine and hot, dry weather so if you are growing it indoors it may not be getting enough bright light or you may be overwatering it. Start by adjusting the watering - allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. If you keep the soil too moist it will develop root rot. If you don't see any improvement in 3-4 weeks, try moving it to a sunnier spot. Between the two adjustments, your plant should perk up.

Sago palms are notoriously slow growing. Some only put out 2-3 new fronds a year so I don't think there's anything wrong with your plant. They simply are not fast growers. As long as the foliage is green, it's happy.

Enjoy your indoor garden!
