Growing an Aloe Vera plant can be really easy or hard depending on your environment. In this article you will learn the basic things that you need to know to grow an Aloe Vera Plant.

I live in southern California and Aloe Vera plants spring up from the ground with ease. We have them in pots and in the ground outside of our house. Currently they have these pretty yellow flowers on them. These flowers also attract birds with the same colors as the flowers.

So if you want to grow an Aloe Vera Plant you need to do the following things.

  1.  If you live in a cold environment then most likely will have to keep your aloe vera plant indoors as they are a desert plant. Southern California is a desert so they grow great here. While growing tomatoes here is a bit tougher.
  2.  If you’re going to use a pot they choose a pot that is more than four times the times of the root ball. Also you will want to make sure that pot has proper drainage. An aloe vera plants won’t grow well in sour soil.
  3. Be careful with the water that you put on your plant. An Aloe Vera Plant will rot if you put too much water on it. In our backyard we water them once a month in the winter time and usually about once a week in the summer time. The deciding factor is the leaves start to turn brown, when they do we water the plants.
  4. As far as sunlight we keep our plants in direct sunlight, while some recommend indirect sunlight for an Aloe Vera Plant we keep ours in direct sunlight. As you can see from the picture they are growing great.


As you might have noticed they are a lot of Aloe Vera Products on the market. So if you grow enough of them it is possible that you could make a good deal of money selling them.
