    Trim off all of the dead leaves with scissors.

    Select a clean pot with a drainage hole in the bottom. ...

    Spread a 1- to 2-inch layer of potting soil over the bottom of the pot. ...

    Slide the aloe plant out of the container it's in. ...

    Place the aloe on top of the soil in the new pot. ...

    Add more soil around the root ball as needed to fill in the pot.

    I have plant like this one. All I do is water it a little at a time and it gets plenty of sunlight. I have divided it up twice within the last 3 years. It is very huge.

    Already said before me but looks like it has been over watered. Keep in mind that Cacti of any kind evolved to survive in dry environments. The reason why Saguaro don't grow north of St George Utah is because that is where the climate changes. Trust me... I felt like an idiot when someone explained it to me I was like DOH! I should have known that lol. The best way to grow healthy plants is to learn how to provide them with the right conditions for light, water, and heat for their species. Youtube has some wonderful tutorials. I used to kill every plant, now I have a jungle in my living room and I am always giving away new starts to friends.

    I recall hearing once a lady had beautiful cacti in her home. She subscribed to an El Paso TX newspaper and only watered her cactus when it rained there. LOL True!

    Just removed dead parts if you can pull them off they are ready to be removed. Do not transplant Aloe grow best when rootbound;if they are in too big of pot they will just grow under ground not up top,when root bound they send up new top growth. they like full sun to bright light and dry-dry between good watering w/ good drainage. #1 killer of house plants too much water and too much being messed with. There are literally hundreds of types/varieties of Aloe some grow more stalk like where they die off at base & some grow more in rosettes. If they have proper lighting, watering & more rootbound they all bloom. Plants reproduce several ways under ground spreading roots then new growth upwards,blooms/seeds,parts/pieces falling off of main plant and restarting. Aloes typically grow/come from harsh conditions so reproduce all 3 of these ways. don't add soil they may rot. it actually looks healthy just needs a little TLC. Only thing I say is it needs brighter light and cleaned up some. Just leave it alone and enjoy. I live in AZ desert and have 15 varieties of Aloe outside some in ground and some in pots
