Product Details

Additional information
Having an aloe vera plant around (and using it, should the need arise), can make even the most modern and high-tech of us feel like herbalist apothecaries. Snipping off a piece of an aloe vera's leaf and applying the clear, cool gel on burns, cuts, rashes, and sunburns offers instant relief and can speed the healing process. Here's how to care for an aloe vera of your own.

Rate of growth
Soil type
Get a potting mix for cacti. Aloe, like other cacti, prefer dry, sandy soil, and they don't do well in the rich moisture of regular potting soil. Check your garden store for a mix made especially for cacti or succulents, plants that store their water and prefer their roots to be dry instead of wet.
Watering instructions
Water aloe vera�plants deeply, but�in order to discourage rot, allow the soil to dry at least 1 to 2 inches deep between�waterings.�Water about every 3 weeks and even more sparingly during the winter. Use your finger to test dryness before watering.�If the potting mix stays wet, the plants� roots can begin to�rot.

Room temperature
The aloe vera is an easy care plant en tolerates low temperatures as well as high temperatures. But keep away from frost because nearby 80% of the plant is water. But temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius won't cause problems.
Room position
Place the aloe in a sunny spot. A sunny kitchen window or another sunny place in your house is perfect for an aloe plant. Aloe also does fine in areas with indirect sunlight. Aloe in full shade will not thrive, so make sure there's a least a little sun in the room where you place the aloe
