Help with my aloe Vera

my aloe Vera has taken a turn for the worst, initially I thought I was over watering him/her. I abstained for over 10 days but I’ve seen no improvement, I can’t seem to work out what’s wrong with my favourite (largest) plant. Is it sun burnt? In need of watering? Is it full of existential dread from having to look out my window all day 

help please! 


thank you x

    Looks OK to me!The bottom leaves will always die off and sometimes the tips can dry out.
    When in doubt with watering succulents err on the side of don't.
    Also make sure you have it in a gritty,well drained compost.

    Is it sat in direct sun? The soil doesn't look great, what did you use to pot it up? They do better with a top dress of grit on top of the compost and it improves the look. How do you water it and what do you feed it with?
