Aloe plant care
Aloe plant: care and cultivation at home. An aloe plant survives well in a hot and dry climate, at a temperature between 20 ° C and 30 ° C, exposed to the sun and wind. For this reason, if you do not have these temperatures all year round, it is better to grow aloe in pots, so that you can keep them indoors during the cold months. It is not necessary to water the aloe if not very rarely, or there is the risk of rotting the leaves. It is not even necessary to prune it: if a leaf should dry out, it will have to be gently removed. With the growth, however, it may be necessary to repot it: the ideal is a pot with a diameter along half the leaves of the plant, therefore to understand when it is time to change the aloe pot, it will be necessary to take these measures. The ideal time for this is spring.
