About Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a succulent plant species of the genus Aloe.
The plant is stemless or very short-stemmed with thick, greenish, fleshy leaves that fan out from the plant’s central stem.The margin of the leaf is serrated with small teeth.
Please be noted that you’ll need a location that offers bright, indirect sunlight (or artificial sunlight). Direct sunlight can dry out the plant too much and turn its fleshy leaves yellow, so you may need to water more often if your aloe lives in an especially sunny spot.
How to plant an Aloe Vera
The first step in aloe Vera plant care is to realize that this plant is a succulent. Like cacti, succulents do best in dry conditions.
When growing aloe Vera plants, plant them in a cactus potting soil mix or a regular potting soil that has been amended with additional perlite or building sand.
Also, make sure that the pot has plenty of drainage holes. Aloe Vera plants cannot tolerate standing water. One important thing in the care of aloe Vera houseplants is that they have proper light. Aloe Vera plants need bright light, so they do best in south or west-facing windows.
How to care for an Aloe Vera
Another important aspect of how to grow an aloe plant is to water the plant properly. The soil of the Aloe Vera plant should be allowed to go completely dry before being watered.
When the aloe plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly drenched, but the water should be allowed to drain freely from the soil. The most common reason an aloe plant dies is that the owners water too often, or do not allow the water to drain. Do not make this mistake when taking care of aloe houseplants. You can fertilize your aloe vera plant, but aloes generally don’t need to be fertilized. If you decide to add fertilizing to part of your aloe vera plant care routine, aloe vera plants should be fertilized once a year in the spring. You can use a phosphorus-heavy, water-based fertilizer at half strength.
