-PLANT CARE GUIDE (ALOE VERA LIVE PLANT)-
LIGHT – Place in bright indirect sunlight or artificial light. A western or southern window is
ideal. Aloe kept in low light conditions may grow leggy.
WATER – The aloe is a succulent plant that is accustomed to arid environments, but its thick
leaves (mature leaves) still need sufficient water. Depending on environment/conditions, and
depending on age and size of aloe plant, a general rule of thumb is to water once a month –
although it’s important to figure out what is best for each individual plant at various stages of
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY – This plant does not require any extra humidity and will do
well in any normal room. They prefer temperature between 55 ˚F - 80 ˚F – making the
temperature of most homes and offices ideal. From May to September in most locations, you can
bring your plant outdoors without any issues (be sure to keep it in indirect sunlight). Bring the
plant indoors in the evenings when nights are cold.
EXTRA TIP – To ensure you are not overwatering your plant, allow the top third of the potting
soil to dry out between waterings. For example, if your plant is kept in 6 inches of potting soil,
allow the top 2 inches to dry out before watering again.
