Aloe Vera Light Requirements

Aloe plant care tips

Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) is a popular plant with some pretty cool health benefits.

Aloe plants are known as a medicinal plant and are great for healing minor burns and soothing sunburns.

Indoor aloe vera is fairly easy to care for but has a notoriously slow growth rate.

Aloe plants thrive in bright, direct sunlight - aim to provide at least 6 hours of full sun exposure each day for the healthiest growth.

If  keeping your aloe indoors, situate it beside a bright south-facing window that receives ample natural light throughout the day.

Limit exposure to low-light conditions over extended periods, as less than optimal sunlight can result in leggy, weaker growth and less prolific blooming.

Always keep in mind, Aloe Vera plants need good drainage so for best results choose a pot with drainage holes.

Aloe does well in succulent potting soil which  includes coarse sand, perlite, lava rock and/or chunks of bark.

Water aloe vera plants deeply, but infrequently.

You may boost the growth rate with fertilizer. Use a fertilizer specifically made for succulents.
