Aloe Vera is a plant with purpose.
Aloe Vera can be grown both indoors and outdoors. In the garden, you want your Aloe Vera to get 2 or 3 hours of sun a day. It’s best protected from the hot afternoon sun.
Indoors, it needs as much light as possible. This is not a low light plant & if it’s not getting the light it needs, the leaves will droop downwards. Just be sure to keep it away from hot glass because it’ll burn.
Aloe Vera likes to nearly dry out completely in between watering. Give it a good soak and make sure it's not sitting in water. The leaves are fleshly and full of water so they can easily rot if over watered.
Free draining potting mix is best for them - they will thrive in a gritty succulent and cacti mix.
It needs a good, strong pot as it grows as the leaves can get very heavy.
A great addition to your plant collection!
