Hi! I have this plant that I've had for about a year now, I think it might be aloe but I'm honestly not sure. Today while I was trying to transfer it to a bigger pot, I accidentally snapped one of the leaves! I'm so sad. What should I do? The leaf is still attached, but definitely broken. Do I leave it? Cut it off? What will happen to the part of the leaf that's still attached to the plant if I cut the top part off? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Yes, it is an aloe. Leave the leaf or cut it off, as you prefer. I don't think the tip part will recover but the base should heal just fine and the plant will eventually grow out of this.

Welcome!
