Q: How much light does my Aloe Vera plant need?
Your Aloe Vera plant does best in direct sunlight but is adaptable even in low light conditions such as in the winter.
Can I keep it indoors?
Yes! An Aloe Vera plant makes a great statement piece by a draft free window in any room.
How do I use the cooling gel?
When you have need, break off a portion of one of the leaves and squeeze out the gel inside. (The plant will heal itself where the section has been broken off.) Apply it to the burned or irritated area. Great for sunburn!
Place your Aloe Vera in a well draining soil pot near a draft free window with ample light and/or in a well lit room.
Since your Aloe Vera plant retains water in its leaves, watch for overwatering. Only rewater when the top layer of soil dries out.
Although not required, you can support your Aloe Vera with an application of fertilizer in the spring.
