When we hear the word Aloe, many immediately think of Aloe vera. Keep in mind, though, that Aloe vera is just one of over 600 different species of aloe.

In this issue, the professional San Diego landscape designers with Juniper Landscape will talk about aloe’s numerous benefits, where to plant aloe, and how to provide your aloe plants with a basic level of TLC.

Of course, if you need personalized help with selecting your aloe plants and designing your garden, we’d love to help you out. Just get in touch with us by calling (619) 334-9464 or sending an email.

Why should I grow aloe?

Aloes are generally low-maintenance succulents that can be grown indoors and outdoors. Perhaps their most widely known benefit is their medicinal use.

For example, Aloe vera is known to produce both antioxidant and antibacterial properties. The gel-like substance found in its leaves has been medically proven to:

  • Treat burns and minor cuts
  • Soothe and moisturize skin irritations
  • Cleanse your digestive system (yes, Aloe vera is edible)

Where should I grow aloe?

As stated above, aloe plants are a good selection for both indoor and outdoor uses. Some home and business owners will start-out their aloe plants indoors before moving them outside during the summer.

  • For indoor use, be sure your aloe plant is in a location to receive indirect light in the warmer times of the year.
  • For outdoor growth, it’s important to provide your aloe plant with a bit of light shade. A covered patio or porch is ideal for aloe growth.

What type of soil should I use for my aloe plants?

The key to aloe plants is placing them in containers or areas where the soil is known to have excellent drainage.

Because aloes store water in their leaves like other succulents, aloe plants do not need a lot of water. The pro-tip is to check the soil manually; if the top 1.5 layers of the soil are dry, it’s time to add a bit of water.
