It's easy to over water Aloe vera, which can cause root rot. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between watering.
Why is my aloe vera falling over?
Aloe vera need a good amount of bright light. Lack of light can weaken the plant leaves which causes them to droop. Too much water can also fill the leaves and make them droop. Letting the plant completely dry out in between watering and providing more indirect light will help strengthen the leaves and help avoid drooping.
