Aloe is not only a beautiful and interesting plant for your home, it’s useful too. The leaves of the aloe plant can be squeezed and the resulting juice works wonders to heal cuts and burns. Like jade, Aloe thrives in dry conditions and doesn’t need frequent watering or feeding. Aloe loves bright light and can also be moved outside in the summertime, when it grows the most. Aloe goes dormant in winter and needs even less care.
