Description for Aloe Barbadensis Vera
The species is frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD. Extracts from Aloe vera are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing, or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of Aloe vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes. Aloe vera is used in traditional medicine as a skin treatment. In Ayurvedic medicine it is called kathalai.
Planting and 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.
Caring for Aloe Barbadensis Vera
- 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..
