Put the stem into a pot of pure perlite, place it somewhere warm and bright (not baking hot sun) and do not water until the new leaves start growing again.

Then repot into a new soil mix after a month or so of new root growth. Whatever you use, add 50% perlite. Place the Aloe somewhere warm and sunny with fresh air. Outside is perfect for the summer.

Repot every 2 years with new soil and a larger pot. During the winter indoors, water the plant MUCH less often. Let the leaves stay soft. Plants are most susceptible to rot when they are dormant.

try it, it helps!!
