Planting And Care

The most common reason an aloe plant dies is that the owners water too often or do not allow the water to drain.

Do not make this mistake when taking care of aloe houseplants.

Aloe Humilis Care

The first step in aloe plant care is to realize that this plant is succulent. Like cacti, succulents do best in dry conditions.

 

Also, make sure that the pot has plenty of drainage holes. Aloe plants cannot tolerate standing water.

Sunlight Full sunlight, so they do best in the south or west-facing windows.
Watering Water the plant properly. Watering should be done when the soil feels to touch. When the aloe plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly drenched.
Soil When growing aloe plants, plant them in a cactus potting soil mix or a regular potting soil that has been amended with additional perlite or building sand.
Temperature Warm weather
Fertilizer Aloes do not need to be fertilized. But you want to apply, should be fertilized once a year in the spring. You can use a phosphorus-heavy water-based fertilizer at half strength.
Harvest Season Mature leaves are harvested.
