Hi, My name is Yesh and I am from Ohio.
My Alove vera plant was very healthy and big. As the outside temperature got better, I moved the plant out into the shade and within 2 weeks it got worse. Two of its leaves has completely dried out and the remaining has become soft. It has lost its colour too.

Can you please help me save the plant.
Attached are the photos of my plant while it was kept indoors and outdoors

Thank you in advance ,
Yesh

I wouldn't worry too much about the change of color, that's normal when you introduce the plant to a new environment with strong light. Keep it in the shade (for now). It needs more light than it was getting indoors but this time of year the sun outside is extra strong, so you need to be careful to introduce it gradually to more light over the course of weeks.

Remove however much soil you need to ensure that no part of any of the leaves is below soil level. All the leaves should be above the soil or there is an increased risk of rot.

Does that pot have a hole at the bottom? How much and how often have you been watering?

Welcome!

Thank you very much for your response. I will move it under the shade. The post had holes and I water them when the soil is all dried up. May be ones a week. Thank You!
