Aloe Vera House Plants
Aloe vera house plants are undemanding plants that are easy to grow indoors. As house plants, it offers the added bonus of providing its healing gel all year round. Aloe is a tender evergreen perennial, which grows up to 24 inches. The leaves are pale green, blade like and are long, very fleshy, tapering, pointed and have spiny teeth along the margins. The plant base is stem-less, but it does eventually produce a stem which will then produce a flower. These are spikes of narrow, trumpet shaped yellow or orange flowers. The stem also provides offshoots for propagation. The root is strong light brown and fibrous. As house plants, aloe vera plants are an excellent addition. During the winter, they thrive indoors and in the summer, putting your aloe plants outdoors is definitely a treat for them. If you live in a climate that is conducive to these plants, make sure you plant them in the sunny areas of your garden. They will tolerate partial shade but if you do plant them where sun is available all of the time, than make sure you water them more often, but only once the soil is dry.
Growing aloe vera house plants is not only easy but can also provide your family with a plant that can help treat minor burns and rashes. Now that you know a little more about how to care for an aloe vera plant, you need never be without this lovely and helpful plant.
