Aloe is a desert plant, but it still needs water. It is likely that your plant died because of a lack of water. This is generally the only thing that will cause an Aloe plant to turn brown.

This is a mildly broad question. What you need to understand is that there are many different species of plants, and each species reacts differently to chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides. I would suggest that you identify the exact species of plant you are dealing with, purchase a good botanist book.

If the plant is alive and a reddish-brown then it is getting too much sun. A crispy brown and dead can be either too much or too little water.


Answer by  LavenderLady (23)

If it is brown and crispy, it was lack of water. If it is brown and mushy it was too much water. Aloe is a succulent and should be allowed to dry out between waterings. It would also turn brown if it was exposed to freezing temperatures.

That usually happens for one of two reasons it either got to little or too much water or it pushed it roots up out of the soil and they rotted.
