This one is just one of several that grow like this. doesn't matter if in direct sun or across room in sunny location or what size plant. I've been propagating them for 3 years or more and most look like this. Only a few actually grow in a cylinder shape.....sometimes pups from one like this one. There is NO answers on any site that I've found that addresses this! Even plant nursery said they didn't know anything about this. Please help!

You have some beautiful healthy plants!
There really is not much out there about this, but I have a theory, it grows this way because that is the variety of Aloe you have, it is doing what it's DNA is telling it to do...and that is growing how it does.
If you'd like to attempt to get it to grow without all the side sprouts, there are some things you can try, that would be staking it and tying it up so all leaves will only be allowed to go perpendicular rather than horizontal.
Best to you.
I read all kind of websites about aloe vera plants and could not find any answers either. I would go to the most reputable garden center you can find and buy a specific type of aloe vera plant to get the growth you are looking for, as I have learned there are many different kinds: https://usesofaloevera.com/growing-different-types-of-aloe-vera-plants/
Hi Bonnie: Mine grow just like yours. It's their nature to grow like that. If you want them to grow straight up, you might want to get something like a tomato cage to put around them. By the by, if any of your leaves break off, you can stick them in a plastic bag and freeze them to use on cuts and burns.
Hello. Here’s some links that could be helpful with care guidelines. Potentially your plant maybe leaning to the sun light source. Have you tried turning your planter at more frequent intervals? Pot size might help dictate growth habit too.
Plant small pieces right next to each other. Then they tend to grow around the pot.
I'm afraid that is the nature of it's growth!
simply a matter of genetics.
It's so pretty! You have a variety that grows wider.
