Fertilizer/ feed for the plant: The Aloe plant thrives in well – drained, sandy loam soil. At the time of planting, add a good amount of cow dung manure or compost to the potting soil.
Repotting : Repot your Aloe Vera once a year. This will ensure that your Aloe gets fresh soil and ample room to grow.
Propagation : With time you will notice that your pot gets crowded with baby aloes which are called Pups. For propagation cut off these pups from the mother plant and place them in a different pot. Aloe can also be propagated by leaf cutting and suckers.
