Tell me your secrets!! I’ve had some misfortune with aloe in the past and I’d hate to lose my new babes!

πŸͺ΄ Always factor in where you are living and its usual climate, which is a huge help for most plants, especially this one; if you live somewhere hot and sunny, you are set, but if not, you are going to have to adjust, but not by much, just be aware of lighting and temperature.

πŸͺ΄There is no such thing as too much sunlight or any light for an aloe vera, no matter what the app says; they are desert-originated. They love the sunlight in any intensity as long as they have ample water to fall back on. It doesn't make sense for the plant that cures sunburns to get sunburnt πŸ˜‚.

πŸͺ΄You should never keep them in the shade; it increases their chances of root rot; they won't have that vibrant green color, and they'll start to stretch out, flop over, and look very sad. So try to find some intense lighting of some kind.

πŸͺ΄Don't be afraid to not water your aloes, these succulents are pretty sturdy when it comes to dehydration due to being desert-originated, it takes months for it to even affect it and even when it does the plant will bounce back when watered again (as you can see)

Personally, I feel that most people end up killing their aloe veras because they are so worried about killing their aloe vera that they become overbearing and give this plant things it doesn't need. As far as succulents go Aloes are like cacti as long as they have sunlight, water, and good drainage they are set for life and will grow huge without much need for anything. They may look like they are fragile but they are quite tough plants
@Seedstarter thank you so much I will keep these tips in mind!
