About False aloe
False aloe is a super rare houseplant 🌿 that is easy to grow and needs very little water to thrive. They do best in long-lasting, direct light ☀️ and should be less than 1 foot from a window.
False aloe likes soil that is extremely well-draining. Your plant shouldn't need added fertilizers if you repot each time it doubles in size.
False aloe belongs to the agave genus, and is native to the United States.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
