Why do my Aloe plants keep rotting off the "leaves". I don't use the same pot or soil I buy them in. I don't water it too much. They just start rotting after I repot from the store pot.

Aloe likes to be pot bound, and when repotted, put into a one size bigger pot. Also, use sandy potting soil, either specially purchased, or mix sand with your regular potting soil.
Jean, Might be that you are getting water on the leaves. My aunt gave me a start but mine rotted also. Had a Swedish Ivy that rotted too. Think those two plants hate me. Make sure you don't let water splash up onto your leaves (spikes) SincerelyJudith Judyajudy AT yahoo.com
