One of the most widely used medical plants globally, aloe vera plants (Aloe barbadensis), have been growing for thousands of years and taking care of an aloe plant in your home or garden is not difficult. 

How to Grow your Aloe Vera Plant 

Understand, your Aloe Vera plant is a succulent, and just like a cacti, succulents thrive in dry and warm conditions. 

Plant your Aloe Vera in a potting soil that has been amended with additional perlite or sand. Make sure the pot you use has lots of drainage holes because Aloe vera plants cannot tolerate standing water. 

Aloe vera house plants require  proper lighting conditions which involves direct bright light. 

Care of Aloe in your Home

Water your Aloe Vera plant properly. If the  soil of the aloe vera plant is completely dry, its time to water.. When the aloe plant is watered, the soil should be soaked through, allowing the water to drain freely from the soil. 

If  you water too often, your aloe plant will probably die or you did not allow the water to drain properly. 

Aloe plants generally don’t need to be fertilized.
