I have an aloe vera potted plant indoors. I haven't been giving it enough attention the last 6 months or so and had moved from an apartment where the air quality and light was poor.

I know it needs sufficient light and little water being a succulent, but now it's become quite spindly/thin and a bit yellow.

Is there anyway to 'bulk' it back up in anyway or encourage the leaves to become thicker?

Hi Welcome to NGA @TKG

It certainly looks like brighter light and feeding your plant should help. How often do you fertilize/water your plant?

here is some info for you on care for your plant.

I would pot the up individually with some decent potting mix and put them outside in better light. I tried to keep mine out of the direct sun, but could not always do that. Mine was huge, probable about 4 feet tall.
