How to nourish an aloe vera plant back to life?
My grandma gave me an aloe vera plant like 30 minutes ago and it seems as though it’s dying… The plant leaf stem things that hold the aloe vera are drooping downwards and I don’t know how to help it.

It’s natural for any plant to go into shock due to change of environment, temp etc. I doubt that it’s dying. A couple of days ago I replanted my Aloe, cut off some dead shoots and placed it deeper into some fresh soil. The root base itself was getting too tall for the pot. This might be the case. The aloe might be in too shallow of a pot. You could try what I just did but when you’re through give it a nice drink and leave it in a sunny spot for about a month. Aloe is technically a cactus so it doesn’t require a lot of water. I think I ignored mine for 3 months and had so many new shoots it was nuts.
