Skinny aloe is a sign that something is not right with the condition you’ve provided for it. The common problem is the location. The aloe vera needs 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight. Lack of sunlight results in leggy, skinny, and runny plants.
Most often, thin aloe vera leaves indicate that your plant is not getting watered as much as it requires. You should leave the aloe thirsty most of the time, but if you stretch this period longer than optimal, the plant draws all the water from its leaves. As a result, the leaves become thin, dry, and limp.
Are your aloe vera leaves getting brown too? Direct sunlight is the leading cause of browning and wilting aloe leaves. Intense sunlight can burn the leaves, causing dry tips, yellowing, and eventually wilting. It also dries out the soil quicker, requiring regular watering.
