Aloe vera is a low-care succulent that thrives as an indoor houseplant. The plant’s large, thick, blue-green leaves are not only beautiful, but they also have calming powers. Because aloe vera gel is a popular treatment for sunburns and cold sores, cultivating indoor aloe vera plants is like having your own DIY first-aid kit. Here is Aloe vera planting and keeping training.
You want your Aloe vera to obtain 2 or 3 hours of sun every day in the garden. Growing in coastal places often need more sun than growing in hot interior areas. It is best covered from the hot afternoon heat, and mine became strained as a result of being exposed to too much sunlight (plus it desperately needed repotting). I relocated it to the back patio, where it received plenty of brilliant light but just a few hours of direct sunlight. It thrived and was happier there, thanks to a larger container and new soil mix.
Water is stored in the lush leaves and strong, fibrous roots of aloe vera plants. They are susceptible to root rot if the soil mix remains damp for an extended period of time. To put it another way, they mush out! You want your Aloe vera to be almost fully dry before watering it again, no matter where it is growing. I properly water mine and make certain that all of the water drains out. It shouldn’t be sitting in water in a saucer or tray, especially if it’s growing indoors.
Mix is closely connected to and follows on the heels of irrigation. To avoid root rot, ensure that the mix in which yours is planted drains properly and is aerated. Yes, plant roots require oxygen, and when they are too damp, they are unable to respire.
Aloe vera can withstand temperatures as low as 28 degrees Fahrenheit. My Aloe vera pots survived outside all year in Santa Barbara and continue to do so in Tucson. If you live in a frigid climate, bring it in before the first freeze.
Fertilization / Feeding
When it comes to fertilisation, this plant isn’t picky. Fertilization is not required for this succulent, as it is for the majority of succulents. On all of my container plants, both indoors and out, I apply a 1/4′′ layer of worm castings followed by a 1/2 – 1′′ layer of compost. This includes Aloe vera.
The quickest way to propagate a plant is to remove and divide the offsets or pups (babies) that develop off the mother plant’s base. Wait until the puppies reach a reasonable size before removing them since the roots will be much more established.
Incredible properties of aloe vera
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive condition that frequently causes heartburn. According to a 2010 study, ingesting 1 to 3 ounces of aloe gel at mealtime might lower the severity of GERD. It may also help with other digestive issues. Because of the plant’s low toxicity, it is a safe and soothing cure for heartburn.
Keeping fruits and vegetables fresh
A research released online by Cambridge University Press in 2014 looked at tomato plants that had been covered with aloe gel. According to the findings, the coating efficiently inhibited the growth of several types of dangerous bacteria on the veggies. A separate trial using apples yielded similar findings. This indicates that aloe gel might help fruits and vegetables stay fresher longer, eliminating the need for harmful chemicals that increase produce’s shelf life.
