The Aloe Vera plant is a special plant to have in your household. It has many health benefits! It works as a topical for skin irritations and sun burns, although make sure to perform a skin patch test before applying on large areas of the body.
Aloe Vera is a very hardy plant that doesn’t require much to thrive. It does best with a heavy watering once every 2 weeks or so. Allow for the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Place in bright indirect sunlight for optimal growth. Be sure to plant in succulent specific soil, which offers the correct amount of drainage. The aloe vera plant does not need to be repotted often, as it does quite well in tight conditions.
