Planting & Care
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.
Also, make sure that the pot has plenty of drainage holes. Aloe vera plants cannot tolerate standing water.
Sunlight: Aloe vera plants need bright light, so they do best in south- or west-facing windows.
Soil: 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.
Water: 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.
Temprature: Warm weather
Fertilizer: You can fertilize your aloe vera plant, but aloes do not 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.
