Growing with Aloe vera

Easy to propagate
Survivor

There are so many cool varieties of this succulent staple. Make sure you get one that already has pups if you want to propagate. I bought one and waited two years before I realized it was the cultivated variety that DOESN'T reproduce! Aloe is very forgiving and is great in a pinch for a burn or a skin issue. Feels weird to rub on but works like magic - er, nature, that is.
