Aloe Vera | Aloe Barbadensis Miller

I have pale green, thorny leaves on a stout trunk. Inside my stems is a gel that has been used to treat a plethora of ills.

Useful to know:

Origin

I originate in South Africa.

Height/Growth

I have been known to grow as tall as three feet, but I'm not likely to get much higher than two, so I won't take over your house! I am one of the best plants for skin health.

Light

Six to eight hours of direct sun is best for me.

Water

Water me when my soil is dry to 2" below the surface. Make sure I am not sitting in water.

Temperature

I will grow well in normal room temperatures and I'm tolerant of dry air. To encourage flowering, however, it is best to give me a short winter rest at a temperature of no more that 10°C (50°F).

Feeding

I don't need much in the way of food. Fertilise me once a year in Spring, ideally with a formula rich in phosphorus.

Grooming

I will not need much grooming.

Care

I will live a long time with the correct care.

Toxicity

Whilst I'm known for being an all-cure natural remedy, I'm best kept away from children and pets.

Fact

I should be moved into one size larger pot every spring. Click here to buy Aloe Vera
