I am new to the plant game and recently got myself an aloe. It has begun drooping and I am not sure of the cause. I purchased the aloe about two months ago. I wait until it is bone dry before soaking completely, and the location of the aloe is in a west facing window (I do not have a south facing window which is what my plant book suggests). I currently (Within the past few days) have been moving it the the east Facing window in the morning and the west facing window later in the day to allow for more light I have attached a picture of it sitting in the east facing window as well as where I typically had it in the west facing window. Any help on why it is drooping would be appreciated.

Give as much light as you can find in the house or take it outdoors in a Sunny spot. Aloe should have at least six hours a day of strong, direct sunlight. Lack of good sunlight can weaken the leaves and cause them to droop.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
