Famed for its healing properties within its fleshy leaves. The Aloe Vera is a welcome addition to space adding a stylish touch as well being very low maintenance, the perfect houseguest! Light and Water Place your Aloe Vera in a spot with lots of bright light, but avoid too much direct sunlight during the summer, and in a warm place away from drafts. The leaves hold a lot water, so it doesn’t need frequent watering. When it does, it should be water thoroughly and only when the soil is fully dry.
