Aloes are succulents from the Lillicae family. The thick
fleshy leaves act as water reserves in times of low rain fall. Succulents prefer
well-drained soil so their roots are not always wet. Using a ceramic pot is
beneficial and letting the soil dry slightly between waterings. In winter Aloe
may go dormant so little water is required but it is ok to water if the plant is
actively growing. Larger Aloes prefer full sun but smaller types benefit from shade during the
heat of the day.
