How to Care for the Aloe Vera Plant
Light: Aloe vera needs a location that offers bright, indirect sunlight (or, artificial sunlight). It does not appreciate sustained direct sunlight, as this tends to dry out the plant too much and turn its leaves yellow.
To ensure that you're not overwatering your Aloe vera plant, allow the top third of potting soil to dry out between waterings.
Soil: Aloe vera plants are succulents, so use a well-draining potting mix, such as those made for cacti and succulents. Do not use gardening soil. A good mix should contain perlite, lava rock, chunks of bark, or all three.
Humidity and Temperature: A general room temperature is best for the Aloe vera. Keep it in a temperature range of 60-75 degrees
Fertilizer: You can fertilize your aloe vera plant, but aloes generally don't need to be fertilized. If you decide to add fertilizing to part of your aloe vera plant care routine, aloe vera plants should be fertilized once a year in the spring.
