How To Care For Aloe Vera
During spring and summer we recommend watering the soil thoroughly every 10 – 14 days, allowing the soil to dry out between watering. Providing winter conditions for your aloe is essential – we recommend reducing watering to once per month. Watch out for under-watering symptoms which include sagging / drying leaves. Over-watering can cause root-rot in Aloe, symptoms of over-watering include yellowing.
You need to make sure your Aloe Vera gets a few hours of direct sunlight everyday.
Don’t worry about this too much, just give the foliage a watering now and again to clean the dust away and increase it’s photosynthesis capabilities.
Aloe Vera like sandy, well-draining soil.
Feed once per month with cacti feed or diluted houseplant feed.
