Plant Features

The Aloe Vera plant is a well-known succulent renowned for its medicinal properties and easy care. This plant has thick, fleshy leaves that grow in a rosette formation. The leaves are green, sometimes with a bluish tinge, and may have white flecks. The edges of the leaves are serrated with small teeth. Aloe Vera is not only valued for its health benefits, such as soothing skin irritations and burns, but also as a hardy indoor plant that adds a touch of greenery to any space.

For troubleshooting, brown or soft leaves is typically a sign of overwatering. Aloe Vera plants store water in their leaves, so they require less frequent watering. If the leaves appear shriveled or dried out, this could indicate underwatering or excessive sun exposure. Root rot can occur if the plant sits in waterlogged soil. Ensure the pot has good drainage and reduce watering. Aloe Vera can attract pests like mealybugs. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if you notice any infestations.
