Aloe vera is a succulent plant belonging to the Aloe genus. Aloe is a widely spread plant with over 500 varieties, and it is considered an invasive species in many parts of the world.

It is an evergreen perennial that hails from the Arabian Peninsula but thrives in tropical, semitropical, and dry conditions worldwide. It is grown for commercial purposes, mostly as a topical therapy that has been used for centuries. The species is beautiful for decoration and thrives as a potted plant inside.

It can be found in a variety of consumer items, including as drinks, skin lotions, cosmetics, ointments, and a gel for minor burns and sunburns. There is minimal clinical evidence that Aloe vera extract is useful or safe as a cosmetic or topical medication. The name comes from the Latin words aloe and vera, which mean “aloe and vera” (“true”).

Aloe vera is a stemless or very short-stemmed plant with offsets that grows to 60″100 centimetres (24″39 inches) tall. The leaves are thick and meaty, green to grey-green in color, with white specks on some kinds’ upper and lower stem surfaces. The leaf’s edge is serrated, with tiny white teeth. The blooms are produced on a spike up to 90 cm (35 in) tall in the summer, with each flower being pendulous and having a yellow tubular corolla 2″3 cm (34″1+14) long. Like other Aloe species, Aloe vera produces arbuscular mycorrhiza, a symbiotic relationship that improves the plant’s access to mineral nutrients in the soil.

Phytochemicals such as acetylated mannans, polymannans, anthraquinone C-glycosides, anthrones, and other anthraquinones, such as emodin and different lectins, are being studied for probable bioactivity in aloe vera leaves.

Aloe vera has long been used as a decorative plant. Modern gardeners prize the species for its unusual blooms, shape, and succulence, as well as as a topical medicinal herb. Because of its succulence, the plant may thrive in places with little natural rainfall, making it excellent for rockeries and other low-water gardens. Hardy in zones 8″11, the plant is sensitive to severe frost and snow. Although spider mites, mealy bugs, scale insects, and aphid species may cause a reduction in plant health, the species is highly resistant to most insect pests. The Royal Horticultural Society has given this plant the Award of Garden Merit.

The plant demands well-drained, sandy potting soil and bright, sunny circumstances when grown in containers. Under too much direct sunlight, aloe plants can become red from sunburn under too much direct sunlight; however, gradual acclimatisation may help. Because they allow for adequate drainage, a top-quality commercial propagation mix or packaged “cacti and succulent mix” is suggested. Because terra cotta pots are permeable, they are the best choice. Before rewatering potted plants, make sure they’re totally dry. Aloes may get crowded when potted, with “pups” sprouting from the edges of the “mother plant.”

Plants that have grown overcrowded can be separated and repotted to provide place for new development, or the pups can be left with their mother. During the winter, Aloe vera may go dormant, requiring very little moisture. The species should be maintained inside or in heated glasshouses in frosty or snowy locations. Haworthia and agave are two houseplants that require comparable care.

Aloe vera is grown on a big scale to feed the cosmetics industry in Australia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, ChinaMexicoIndiaJamaica, and Spain. It grows even deep inland, Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa well as the United States.
