Aloe barbadensis, also called aloe barbadensis miller, medicinal aloe, Barbados aloe, aloe vera, or the burn plant, is a member of the Asphodelaceae family and is an easy-to-grow, attractive succulent. It’s a beautiful houseplant or addition to rock gardens in warm climates. Aloe plants are quick-growing and great for beginners.


An aloe vera houseplant is a must-have plant for any herbalist’s kitchen. The clear gel within the aloe leaves is often used fresh or incorporated into skin and hair care products. It’s the same aloe vera gel you may see in bottles at the pharmacy, and herbalists have used it to provide quick relief for sunburns and other mild skin irritations. Herbalists have also used aloe vera barbadensis juice internally to relieve mild gastrointestinal issues and improve digestion.


Note that some folks are allergic to aloe.


Aloe vera plants are tender perennials. They’re most commonly grown indoors as a houseplant but can be moved outdoors to a porch or patio during the warmer months. If you’re moving an indoor aloe vera out for the summer, you will need to transition your plant slowly, or the leaves can burn. Aloe thrives in bright, indirect light.


How to Grow Aloe Vera Plants


Grow your aloe vera plant in sandy, well-drained soil. Cactus or succulent potting mixes work well for aloe. Water regularly, keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Aloe vera plants don’t require high soil fertility. Aloe plants do best when kept between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
