Growing with Aloe vera
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.
