Hello! I've had this aloe plant for around 5 years now. This older leaf towards the bottom of the plant seems to be dying from the tip towards the center. The yellow is spreading closer to the center and I'm just a bit scared that the whole plant will suffer. I've tried cutting off the unhealthy pieces and it seems to stop the spreading of the unhealthiness for a little, but the leaf continues to experience this spreading illness. Any advice on how to stop it, remove the leaf in total, or remedy it?

There still are leaves growing from the center of the plant.

It's totally normal for the lowest leaves to slowly die back from the tips. I wouldn't worry about it. Your plant looks great overall, but it could use more sun, if you have a spot right in front of an unobstructed southerly facing window, perhaps.

Welcome!

Awesome! Thank you so much! I've invested in a plant light and will slowly introduce it to continued use!
