My aloe vers has been outside and it has been raining a lot. It never dries out before it rains again.

If possible, you should place it under roof to protect it from rain. If the potting mix is free draining, it will probably be ok.

I would move it too. No matter how well-drained, Aloe can't be constantly wet, especially in cooler temps. If it's raining, the sun can't shine on it anyway. If the rootball will hold together, you could slip it out of pot, set on some newspaper to dry.

I agree with purple, get it out of the pot to dry out. Our weather isnt going to get warm enough for it to dry out before it rots. Good luck teen...

Okay it is drying out on newspaper outside. It was in a free draining mix but im going to put it in potting mix with lots of perlite and a little orchid bark.
