Aloe vera plant is known for the healing properties of its sap. Also called Burn Plant or Medicine Plant, many people use the gel-like liquid from a broken leaf to soothe minor burns and abrasions. Sap from a snapped-off leaf has restorative properties that can be applied directly to skin. Aloe vera plant's sap is commonly used in medicines, lotions and cosmetics around the world. 

Aloe vera is characterized by its rosette-shaped arrangement of thick, fleshy, and tapering leaves. The leaves are typically green-gray in color and can grow tremendously based on the maturity of the plant. Aloe is an easy-to-care-for plant that prefers well-draining soil and lots of indirect sun. As a succulent, it can tolerate periods of drought and is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. 


Botanical Name: Aloe vera

LIGHT: Bright light, with some direct sun in winter. Keep aloe vera out of hot, direct sunlight in summer, which can scorch its leaves. It's a good idea to rotate your plant each week to expose all sides to sunlight for even growth. Fast draining soil is the best for this plant.

WATER: Spring through fall, water thoroughly, allowing the potting medium to almost dry out before watering again. Don't allow water to settle in the rosette of leaves because they easily rot. Water sparingly in winter when growth is slower. Do not allow the soil to dry out completely, however. When aloe vera is too dry the leaves will wrinkle.

TOXICITY: Toxic to pets when ingested. Plant contains anthraquinones in sap, which can cause vomiting, lethargy, and abdominal pain.
