3. Bright Light Lover
While some succulents can survive or even thrive in the shade, aloe vera plants need bright light or sunshine to grow to their potential. Place your plant in a sunny corner with indirect, bright sunlight. Like many other plants, the aloe cannot take direct hot sunlight in the warm summer months, so if it is planted, be sure to put it in a place where it will be protected from the damaging direct sunshine. If the winters are not too harsh, you can also place the aloe plant in the sunshine during the cooler months if there is no risk of frost.
4. Dry is Best
Since succulents can store water in their stems and leaves, aloe vera plants do not need much water to be happy. In fact, overwatering aloe is a real concern for new aloe vera plant owners who are used to soaking typical houseplants regularly. Instead, the aloe plant needs a thorough watering only when the soil is dry to the touch. A good soaking that is allowed to drain away naturally will provide the perfect aloe vera plant care needed to make your succulent flourish.
