Aloe Vera

Having Aloe Vera in your landscape is a great way for you to have a low maintenance landscape.  They are easy to keep alive and require very little water to stay alive.  This makes it the perfect plant to keep during the hot Arizona months.  Aloe Vera is a succulent that is native to Africa.  This succulent has very fleshy leaves which efficiently store water.  This helps the plant to survive in rough climates.  Throughout history, people have found the Aloe plant’s fleshy gel is useful for many different things such as skin problems, skin dehydration, and skin burns.

How To Care For Your Aloe Vera

The Aloe Vera plant is a very beautiful flowering plant which will complement and enhance any desert landscape in Arizona. This succulent is right at home in the hot and sunny weather and does not need regular watering, which makes it perfect for those who have a busy lifestyle.  Aloe does not like to be bothered, it prefers to be left alone.

During the summer, an Aloe plant should only be watered once or twice a week and only once a month in winter. Fertilizers should only be used when this succulent plant is dying during the hotter days of the year. But remember, it is important to let the plant dry out between its water cycles.

Aloe Vera is One of the Best Choices When Choosing a Plant

Envirogreen highly recommends an Aloe vera if you are looking for plants that will grow just fine in their natural environment with little attention and the low maintenance of watering and care.  Aloes are also great looking plants that will stay beautiful through even the toughest, hottest, dry weather.  Planting Aloes will save time and save money on your water bill all while keeping your landscape looking great year round!  Envirogreen has plenty of Aloe Vera to purchase in our in-house cactus nursery.
