Aloe (Aloe vera)

Aloe (Aloe vera)


Aloe (Aloe vera) is a useful plant to have in your home.  It has many medicinal uses for everyday life.  Many people use aloe to help heal burns, abrasions, scrapes, and scratches.  It is a natural healer.


An Aloe plant has the same characteristics of a cactus.  You can care for your Aloe the same way you would a cactus.  Thoroughly water your aloe plant only when the soil is dry.  Aloe plants need plenty of direct sun light so keep your plant in a well lit location.  Do not fertilize your aloe plant.



When your Aloe plant grows big enough it will start to sprout shots (baby plants).  These shots grow large enough you will be able to break them off and create new Aloe plants.
