You had me at ‘aloe’: How to care for your aloe vera plant

Aloe vera is one of the most useful plants, and many of us can probably remember our parents having one in their kitchen when we were younger—just in case. These plants are so helpful for healing burns, cuts, scratches, and even scars. With antioxidant and antibacterial properties, the benefits of aloe vera are practically endless.

Aloe is also incredibly low maintenance—so easy to care for. It’s important to find a good cactus soil so that there’s a good amount of drainage. Aloe vera doesn’t love to be stuck in a damp soil. We love Espoma Cactus soil, and it does really well with aloe.

These plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight and only need to be watered when their soil is completely dried out. It may even be a couple of weeks before your aloe needs to be watered again.

You might even find some smaller, baby plants pop up in your pot. You can pluck these out relatively easily and repot them in a new home!
