Aloe Vera is both popular and easy to grow, provided you understand the level of water and sun that mimics the hot climate this plant thrives in. Unusually for a succulent, the aloe plant cannot be grown from a leaf cutting, and instead is typically propagated by detaching younger clone plants from the base of the adult plant or from the joint root system. These young plants must be treated carefully, as explained in detail in the section on propagation.
Plant the Aloe vera in well draining soil. Aloe vera plants are adapted for survival in dry conditions, and may rot if planted in soil that collects standing water. Use a cactus potting mix, or create your own mix using equal parts soil, sand, and gravel
Aloe vera plants prefer 8–10 hours of sunlight a day
loe plants do not require fertilizer, and overuse can harm the plant or cause it to grow in an unhealthy manner. If you wish to encourage growth, use low nitrogen, high phosphorous, low potassium fertilizer, such as a 10:40:10 or 15:30:15. Apply once a year in late spring, at the start of the growing season.
If the leaves turn brown, decrease sunlight.
Yellowed or "melting" leaves are suffering due to excess water. Stop watering altogether for the next week, and water less frequently once you resume.
In general, the distances for Αloe vera planting range from 30-80 cm on the rows and up to 60 – 80 cm between the rows.
