I'm not even 100% sure if it's an aloe but it's close enough... anyway, my plant has had very squishy leaves for the past MONTH. Traditionally, they've been fairly firm. I thought it was rot, but I'm honestly not sure anymore- it doesn't really look like rot.
The leaves are very green still, besides a bit of brown toward the middle. I also noticed that the leaves have not scabbed over at all, and that they seem very thin compared to their usual plump selves. The roots also seem to have shrunk quite a bit- what used to fill a pot is now much smaller.
Any ideas?

Are you watering enough?

Probably not- do you think that is the problem? Before, it seemed more like I was overwatering though and began watering less.
