Planting+

As soon as possible after receiving the Aloe, plant it in a flower pot. Choose a pot with holes in the base with a matching saucer, so that any excess water can drain away. Or use an ornamental pot in which the irrigation water from the inner pot is collected. Sprinkle a layer of hydro granules over the bottom of the pot, cover with fresh potting compost and plant the root ball of the Aloe at the right depth. Fill the pot with more compost and press firmly. Keep the soil just below the rim so there is room for watering. Water generously after planting and place the pot in a warm, light spot. Full sun is tolerated by this strong houseplant. Repot only when necessary.

Care+

Aloe is highly resistant to drought and has moderate water needs. Keep the root ball moderately moist to dry. Rather than watering little and often, occasionally, water generously. Preferably use rain water. From spring through until August occasionally add plant food when watering. Make sure the pot has adequate drainage, as this plant does not tolerate being in soil that is too wet. Water less during the winter but avoid the root ball from drying out completely. Place the Aloe in a cooler room during the winter - it may then form a flower stalk, just not every year. In the summer this plant is also suitable as a patio plant.

Extra+

Aloe is a succulent that stores a lot of fluid in the leaves making it very drought tolerant. The leaves are grey-green and a little prickly.

You may get reddish orange flowers grow from the centre of the rosette on a stalk, usually in the winter. 

Aloe aristata is one of the Asphodeloideae
