Regular price

SUN


Place in bright, indirect sunlight or artificial light. A western or southern window is ideal. Aloe that are kept in low light often grow leggy. 

WATER

Water aloe vera plants deeply, but infrequently. Every 3 weeks and even more sparingly during the winter. To discourage root rot, allow the soil to dry at least 1 to 2 inches deep between waterings. Don’t let your plant sit in water.

AIR

Aloe is super hardy and can handle temperatures up to about 85 degrees Fahrenheit and very cold temperatures down to nearly freezing. They don’t need much humidity at all, so they should be fine in your home even if you live in a dry climate. 

PET FRIENDLY

Mildly toxic for cats and dogs. 

AESTHETIC

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. Perfect in the kitchen or a location without sustained bright light. 

HEALTH BENEFITS

The Aloe Vera has tremendous healing properties. The gel inside its leaves is full of vitamins (digestible in liquids or foods) and naturally antibacterial making it ideal for treating minor cuts and burns including sunburn. The aloe vera gel can help improve dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. To harness the healing powers of this plant simply snap off a leaf, open it up and rub the inside of the leaves over the affected area for instant relief or scrape into your smoothies.
