Aloe - Vera

Aloe - Vera


Aloe vera is a well-known succulent that forms stemless or short-stemmed rosettes of thick fleshy grey-green leaves with sparsely dentate margins. It offsets freely at the base to form clusters of rosettes. Leaves are erect, linear-lanceolate, up to 2 feet (60 cm) long, and up to 2.8 inches (7 cm) wide. Flowers are tubular, pendulous, with a yellow tubular corolla, and usually appear in spring and summer on sparsely-branched, up to 3 feet (90 cm) tall inflorescences.


When growing A. vera indoors, place your plant near a window that gets plenty of bright indirect light. Rotate the pot once or twice a week so that all sides of the plant receive equal lighting. Outdoors, provide light shade, especially during the hottest parts of the day.


This succulent does need regular watering but is very tolerant of drought conditions for short periods. Water deeply, but only when the soil is dry. Cut back on watering during the winter months. Do not let water stand in the rosettes.
