Similarly, you may ask, do aloe plants need direct sunlight?
Six to eight hours of direct sun is best, although most aloe vera plants will tolerate some light shade or filtered sun at midday. A south- or west-facing outdoor area and slightly sandy soil provide ideal conditions for growing aloe vera, whether in a pot or in the ground.
Likewise, what does an overwatered aloe plant look like?
Overwatering. When an aloe plant is being overwatered, the leaves develop what are called water-soaked spots. They look like what you describe: soggy and soft. It is almost as though the entire leaf becomes saturated and gel-like, then it turns to mush.
Container-grown aloe does require some irrigation. Generally, the plant needs to be watered when the soil dries out completely but before shriveling or wilt of the plant occurs. Feeling the soil in the pot provides the best guide for watering times. If the soil feels moist, the plant doesn't need water.
