A rather famous plant in its own right, known for its medicinal and soothing properties. Originally hailing from the Middle East, Aloe Vera are slow growers but a good height on this houseplant gives real presence, so worth the investment. make sure to combine with a sturdy planter as these plants are bulky. Ideal For Beginners.
Native to North Africa and the Middle East
Positioning + Light Needs
Requires a plentiful mix of indirect and direct sunlight. Avoid positioning in cold spaces or exposing to draughts.
Aloe Vera retain moisture in their leaves so water very modestly and only when the soil is dry.
No misting at all please, Aloe Vera likes low humidity.
Feed me once every Spring with liquid fertiliser (make sure to use fertiliser made specifically for succulents and cacti).
When roots fill all the nursery pot. Signs: If your main aloe plant is starting to look a little droopy but is surrounded by smaller pups, it's definitely time to re-pot.
Child / Pet Friendly
Look out for
Pale, yellowing leaves: either not enough direct sunlight or possible overwatering.
Check soil: if too wet, re-pot me!
