Organic Aloe Vera
ABOUT ALOE VERA
Aloe Vera plants have been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years but also make a great indoor plant for helping to improve your indoor air quality. These plants are easy to grow and fairly hardy, making them a good choice for those who don’t possess a green thumb. Aloe Vera is also perfect to keep around the house to help treat rashes and minor sunburns.
Your Aloe Vera plant will stand at about 8”-10” inside of a 3.5” growing planter.
Aloe Vera loves bright and indirect sunlight. South or West facing windows are a good choice for these plants. Much like succulents, Aloe Vera do their best in dry conditions and will do well when planted in cactus potting soil mix or regular potting soil mixed together with perlite or building sand.
Overwatering. Make sure to plant your Aloe in a planter with proper drainage and make sure that it is never left in standing water. You should only be watering once every three weeks or until the soil is completely dry.
Aloe Vera gel has long been used as a soothing topical treatment for sunburns and other minor irritations, but the yellow inner skin can cause contact dermatitis, so be careful and apply a small test portion to the skin before applying. It also helps purify the air of benzene and formaldehyde.
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT
Place your Aloe Vera in an area where it can get bright indirect sunlight for at least 4 to 6 hours a day. Water your Aloe Vera only once the soil has gone completely dry, which may be even less frequent during the winter months.
PLANT CARE WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
Aloe Vera is mildly toxic to humans and pets and may cause vomiting or diarrhea when ingested.
