Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Aloe Vera Care Guide

Aloe's like plenty of light, but limited direct sunlight. The leaves can drop in lower light conditions. Rotate regularly to ensure even growth. Cacti soil is best for Aloe, or a mix of regular house plant compost with added drainage such as perlite. Allow the soil to completely dry out between waterings.

Learn More About Aloe Vera

Collapsible content

What is the Aloe Vera Known For?

Aloe Vera is best known for its gel-filled leaves that have been used for centuries for their soothing, healing, and hydrating properties. It's a staple in skin care and alternative medicine due to its potent anti-inflammatory and regenerative qualities.

What Is the History of the Aloe Vera?

Historically, Aloe Vera has been used as a medicinal plant since ancient times, with evidence of its use by the Sumerians and Egyptians, who called it the "plant of immortality." It has a long-standing tradition in herbal remedies and has been depicted in ancient carvings and writings.

Where Does the Aloe Vera Originate?

Aloe Vera is believed to originate from the Arabian Peninsula, but due to its ease of cultivation and popularity, it now grows in sunny climates worldwide, from Africa to the Mediterranean, and in many homes in the UK as a houseplant.

How Do You Care for a Aloe Vera?

Proper care for an Aloe Vera plant includes positioning it in a place with bright, indirect sunlight and watering it sparingly – only when the soil is completely dry. It's a drought-tolerant plant that prefers warmer temperatures and can suffer from overwatering.

Are Aloe Vera Toxic to Pets?

Aloe Vera is not safe for pets if ingested. The gel is commonly used for topical applications, but the plant's leaves contain aloin, which can be toxic to cats and dogs if consumed.

    Really very very impressed. The plants arrived within 28 hours of ordering them. Very well packed and protected. On opening the plants are very healthy, and also more established than the same plant from other websites. I will definitely recommend this company and use them again

    After spending almost an hour looking at and reading through all the different plants on the website, I finally decided on three fairly easy to care for plants. The website was easy to navigate with simple, yet clear instructions. Which is great for those us of who are novices. On arrival the plants were very carefully packaged and were beautiful. I would have given 5 stars had it not been for the Aloe Vera plant having already had a large section chopped off (photos will be added to this review). Even so, I would recommend this company to others and will use them again.
