Aloe Plant Quick Care Tips:

  • Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry before watering, but don’t allow the soil to become hard or compacted


  • Overwatering is the number one reason all Aloe plants have health problems


  • Aloe plants prefer bright, indirect light, but some varieties can adapt to lower-light environments


  • Note that these must be grown inside during winter unless you live in zones 8-10 (check your zone here) as frost will kill them!



  • Aloe plants propagate by producing baby plants called “pups.” They can be repotted to grow new plants.


  •  Aloe plants are toxic to cats and dogs, so keep away from curious pets! Click here for plants that are pet-safe.
