Aloe

Aloe is one of the few plants I had in the house before I started my houseplant initiative. It’s a medicinal plant with antibacterial and antifungal properties that make it useful for skin and digestive issues.  Although currently the only proven use is to aid in healing first and second degree burns. It’s an easy to care for plant that suffers from few problems besides over watering.

Mine lives in a nice bright location in the kitchen that gets maybe an hour of direct sun a day.  I gave it this lovely new basket when I did my houseplant shopping, since they were all on sale 🙂

    Your aloe looks lovely. If you can, try putting it outside until frost. It just might bloom for you.
