Your aloe must be placed in a location where it will get at least six hours of sunlight every day. Your succulent will start to stretch and lose its lovely, compact shape without continuous, direct light.
Begin by placing your aloe plant in a well-drained pot. The diameter of the pot should be 1 to 2 inches larger than the root ball.
Keep your aloe plant in a bright, indirect light source.
Allow the soil to dry between waterings.
If kept under a shade, remember to get the aloe some 3-4 hours of sunlight a day.
Yes! Aloe is extremely sensitive to temperature changes.
Bending aloe vera leaves should be removed because they may not recover easily. It’s also a good idea to prune any infected or yellowing leaves, especially those near the succulent’s base, because they’re permanently damaged.
Look for a pot that is 3 to 6 inches in diameter and 2 to 4 inches tall for maximum growth of an Aloe Vera. Aloe plants thrive in small pots that drain well. Use ceramic pots with drainage holes to ensure proper drainage and prevent root rot.
Yes it is possible. After separating the offshoot, plant it directly in the previous aloe pot if it is large enough. Simply dig a small hole in the substrate and place the cuttings next to the mother plant, as they can no longer grow together after separation.
Use cactus and succulent potting mix. Gardening soil should not be used. A good mix should include perlite, lava rock, bark chunks, or all three.
Aloe grows at a glacial pace.
Indoor aloe plants can live for up to 12 years if properly cared for. Outdoor varieties have been known to live for more than two decades.
In India Aloe Vera can be grown indoors and outdoors.
Yes! Aloe plants grow best in full sun to part sun, but they can tolerate bright or deep shade in hotter climates.
A pale yellow aloe plant is mostly a sign of root rot caused by overwatering and slow draining soils. We would suggest repotting your aloe into a drier mix at the earliest.
Aloe can fall over when they are not receiving enough sunlight and the leaves or stem lack the strength to grow in the pleasing upright form you expect. The leaves will become limp, flattened, and elongated. Over-watering or soggy soil is another common cause of aloe sagging, especially in the winter.
Aloe Leaves have brown or black circular spots. Such spots on the aloe plant are symptoms of aloe rust, a fungal disease.
The leaves also shrivel when they are dehydrated
|Cause for curling leaves||Symptoms||Solution|
|Dehydrated||Aloe leaves will appear faded and curl inward.||Water the plant until it soaks the soil till the bottom of the pot. Next, water the aloe as soon as the soil is completely dry.|
|Too much sun||The leaves will curl inward and partially turn yellow.||Limit the exposure to the sunlight to strictly 6 hours and not more.|
|Root rot||The leaves will curl outward and turn yellow.||Remove the damaged roots and repot Aloe. Keep the aloe in the shade for some days. Water moderately|
|Excess heat or cold||The leaves will curl inward and turn a reddish-green color.||Move the aloe to a warmer place.|
|Lack of light||The leaves will curl outward and stretch out.||Keep the aloe in the place where it receives 6 hours of direct sun|
|Disease||The leaves will become deformed and develop spots, necrosis, or mildew.||Repot the aloe into clean soil and treat it with fungicide.|
|Soil||Leaf curling from under or overwatering.||Transplant Aloe. Use succulent potting mixture|
