Home Garden – Aloe Vera

The Aloe Vera is a stem-less perennial plant which typically flowers during the summer. Here’s a good website with more information about this plant.

My Aloe Vera

One day, I noticed a smaller aloe vera plant growing along with the original one in the same pot, so I transplanted it to a smaller pot.

Little Sister

I keep the big one in direct sunlight and the little one in partial shade.

This plant requires almost no maintenance except occasional fertilizing.

I water it between twice a week during peak winters and every day during peak summers. I fertilize it every 2 months or depending on when it shows signs of growth.

If you cut or puncture one of the leaves, a sticky gel comes out and the cut tip fuses in a few days and self heals. I believe I am supposed to put the gel on my skin when I get sunburnt, but the Lockdown doesn’t allow me to get one.

Here’re some good tools which will help you with your gardening.

  1. Didn’t you get one (sunburn) when you went to the main gate for getting some courier?
