About This Product

Aloe vera is a member of the genus Aloe and the Xanthorrhoeaceae family of plants and is native to southern Africa, Saudi Arabian peninsula and Madagascar. Aloe vera is widely used as an ingredient in creams, cosmetics and also used for it's medicinal properties. It grows in a clump with thick leaves that store water. Plant in a quick draining, sandy soil or a succulent soil mix. Water only when soil becomes dry as over watering will quickly rot and kill Aloe vera. This plant is drought tolerant.

USDA Hardiness Zones 10-11

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Aloe vera will grow well in a container garden, terrarium or as a houseplant. Make sure to place Aloe vera in direct sun or in bright, artificial light during the day. If kept in an enclosed terrarium, keep in bright indirect light instead of direct sunlight as the inside of the terrarium will heat up to temperatures above what is recommended for this plant. Water only when soil is dry and be careful not to over water. If planted in container without drainage holes, use a drainage layer below the soil level to prevent the plant from sitting in water.

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Aloe vera is a terrestrial succulent and should be planted in the substrate. Aloe vera will grow from 6-12", so keep this in mind when planting Aloe vera in your desert vivarium.

Aloe vera requires bright light and has low water needs. It prefers dry, well drained soil or substrate. Do not allow standing water on the leaves of Aloe vera. Aloe vera does not require air movement or ventilation as long as standing water is not present on it's leaves. Aloe will grow fairly broad, long leaves in a naturalistic vivarium and will make a great foreground plant in larger desert vivaria, or background plant in smaller desert vivaria.

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Plants from Josh’s Frogs are specifically grown to be safe for use with animals. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.
