Hello,
So I have had this aloe Vera for about 7 months, it looks fairly small for a plant that old. anyways, I had recently added perlite to the soil and moved it outside since it was growing leggy inside the kitchen, it has always looked sad and not the best, but now it's looking really bad... did i add too much perlite? Is this a disease? Please help, I don't wanna lose this plant since it's my first ever and I'm kinda attached to it.

Thanks for reading,
Ali

They need full sun and sparing water. It was getting leggy probably because of lack of full sun.

Setting it out in a place where it gets full, hot sun all day long is your best bet, in my opinion....but it may have been deprived of sunlight for too long. Don't water until the soil is completely dry two inches down.

I did leave it outside for 2 weeks now, found a spot where the sun moves around and where it isn't exposed to it all day.
It seems to be getting worse, the leaves are thin, and there are these brown spots on them. Please looks at the pictures below.
