Aloe Vera

Aloe barbadensis



People have been growing Aloe Vera plants for literally thousands of years. It is one of the most widely used medicinal plants on the planet, perhaps because of how surprisingly easy it is to grow and be successful with.

And, although it might be packed full of goodness, it's also just a stunning addition to any indoor plant collection.

However, if you do want to explore your Aloe's medicinal properties, it can be applied topically for sunburn or pureed into smoothies or cubed up and frozen for up to a month.

How to care for your Aloe Vera

Native habitat

The Aloe plant is native to North Africa, Southern Europe, and the Canary Islands

Light and position in the home

Your Aloe needs bright, indirect sunlight but doesn't appreciate sustained direct sunlight, so make sure to keep your plant away from any south-facing windows sills.

Watering and humidity

Being a succulent, Aloe prefers conditions on the drier side, so plant them in a cactus potting soil or other well-draining potting mix if you can. Generally speaking, water your Aloe once every 2-3 weeks in the Spring and Summer, and even more sparingly during the Autumn and Winter.
