I have an aloe vera houseplant my family has had for a couple years now and its been kind of sickly this whole time. I recently moved it to a new pot and its much greener now, but the stalks never thicken no matter what. its in a windowsill. What can i do to help it?

Hello swiftblackwolf, so during the earlier couple of years, depending where you are located, has this plant ever been outside during the warmer months? They do grow much better outdoors when conditions are warmer, and getting much more light, than being indoors.

I would just slowly introduce it outside again, once your outdoor conditions are going stable and warm already, position in part sun/shade, then to more full sun later on.
