Aloe Vera Succulent is a beloved houseplant for its medicinal properties and ease of care. The gel-filled leaves are known for soothing sunburns, healing wounds, and benefiting hair and skin. Aloe Vera is drought tolerant and can bounce back from neglect. As this succulent grows and matures, it produces “pups” that can be repotted and shared.
Best Locations For Growing Aloe Vera Succulent
Put Aloe Vera in a bright location in the home or office. It can also be set outdoors in partial shade during the summer. The plant is considered toxic to pets and humans if ingested but can be applied topically safely. Keep an eye on pets and children around this plant.
Aloe Vera Sunlight Requirements
Aloe Vera Succulent prefers bright indirect sunlight in a western- or southern-facing window. If planted or moved outdoors, be careful not to burn the foliage with direct sun. Give Aloe Vera partial shade outdoors.
Aloe Vera Succulent Care
Use a sandy soil or cactus mix that is very well draining to pot up Aloe Vera Succulent. As it matures, Aloe Vera can become dense and heavy in its pot; repot into a larger pot if Aloe Vera becomes top heavy and falls over. Like most succulents, Aloe Vera likes to be pot bound and prefers terracotta pots that dry out easily. The plant does not require special pruning but leaves can be periodically removed and used for their medicinal properties.
Watering Aloe Vera Succulent
Aloe Vera Succulents prefer dry conditions and can withstand periods of drought. Water thoroughly every two weeks, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Feeding Aloe Vera Succulent
Aloe Vera Succulents have low fertilizer needs. Feed once a growing season with a balanced houseplant fertilizer.
