Aloe Vera Plant Care
I remember when I was young, my dad had a row of this strange greenish plant with jagged edge right at the corner of his mini garden. He always said those are the nature’s miracle and a God’s gift to our family. He also said the tube of gel that he used to apply on my knee bruises was made of the plant. It was so weird, there I thought of.
William Brown of Herbal Skin Remedy wrote that “By utilizing steam, baths, and vapors, the skin will immediately absorb the properties of your chosen herbs. Rosehips, calendula, orange and other citrus oils, almond and macadamia nut oil, horsetail, shea butter, rosemary, lavender, ylang ylang, and aloe vera are some of the most beneficial herbs for skin rejuvenation.

Later, of course I learnt that the name of this strange plant is Aloe Vera, which sounds nice I guess. From here, I have taken a firm interest on this plant too.
Today let me share with you some tips on how to take care of Aloe Vera plant.
1. Aloe Vera is an easy to maintain houseplant.
2. It doesn’t require a lot of water, just like cactus (You can water it once a week or 2 weeks)
3. Place aloe plants near the place where there is a lot of sunlight.
4. Transplant if it overgrows the pot.
As you can see, there is practically nothing much when it comes taking care of Aloe plants.
However, one thing to note is that, it will grow extremely fast if you place it at bright spots. When the pot is too small for it, there is a need to transplant and grow the new shoots in other pots.
