Description for Aloe humilis

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 purpose.

Aloe vera is used in traditional medicine as a skin treatment. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is called kathalai.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Kathalai, Spider Aloe orange or yellow Late winter to spring 1-3 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

The first step in aloe 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 plants cannot tolerate standing water.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sunlight, so they do best in the south or west facing windows. When growing aloe 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 the plant properly. Watering should be done when the soil feels to touch. When the aloe plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly drenched. Warm weather Aloes do not need to be fertilized. But you want to apply, should be fertilized once a year in the spring. You can use a phosphorus-heavy water-based fertilizer at half strength.
