Aloe Vera Care

Posted by Hulya Mehmet on

Known to be an incredibly easy-going succulent family, an Aloe makes a great indoor plant that can also help to purify the air. Because they are succulents, they require very little water and maintenance. Your Aloe plant will be happiest on a sunny window ledge.

 

Light

Your Aloe plant prefers bright indirect light to full sun. Insufficient light will cause the leaves to droop downwards.

Water

Water your Aloe only when the soil is completely dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Humidity

This plant does not require any extra humidity and can handle dry air.

Temperature

Your Aloe Vera will do just fine in average room temperatures, between 15-25 degrees.

Food

Feed once in the spring and once in the summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.

Toxicity

Your Aloe Vera can be moderately toxic, causing mouth irritation and stomach indigestion to humans and pets if ingested.

Additional Care

If you place your plant in the full sun during the late spring and summer, it will most likely reward you with soft-orange blooms. When placed outdoors, it will require a bit more water. Look out for wilting leaves—this is a result of inadequate water.
