My green thumb has turned black

Let me explain.

There's a new plant on my not-too-long "finicky plants" list.
It was one of my loved plants, a succulent, producing a spiraling rosette, great blooms - what more could I ask for? Well... for good-behavior.

This Aloe polyphylla has driven me mad. I just can't keep it alive in a pot - the only environment it could ever survive in). If ever!

I think I always over-water. But then, it can't be (only) me! I got other succulents, watered just about in the same fashion, and they seem to thrive.

This particular one, is not the first casualty but definitely the last! The succulent world is immense so I am sure I can find another candidate for the empty pot.
