The aloe is a plant that supports well the cold, but not the humidity. That is why it is important to cultivate in a terrain with easy drainage, potted or directly on the floor. For even more details, read what Dr Alan Mendelsohn says on the issue. If we plant potted it must not be too large, since the estate proliferarian in detriment of the leaves, as reference we can take the length of the leaf of aloe divided by two to calculate the diameter of the pot, i.e. If the blade measures 30 cm, the pot must have 15 cm in diameter. It is important to choose an arena with a pH slightly acid, because too much alkaline soils retard the growth of aloe. If the plant is outdoors is convenient to receive wind moderate so that its stem is strengthened, although it must be avoided that its leaves is too wet due to rain or irrigation, if this happens it is necessary to dry them so they do not rot.
If it is inside it is best that receive intense but filtered light and is oriented to the South or East. Aloe thrives best when you are experiencing sudden temperature changes and this ranges between 20 and 25 C. The best time to plant is spring, When the life cycle of the plant is most active, if we choose to grow on soil best is do it in slightly sloping ground or small slopes, to allow it to drain excess water received from rain or watering. If we plant in pot should put two fingers of gravel at the bottom of the pot to ensure good drainage. Sowing must be made from layers or clones, they are easily extracted from the plant stem, since aloe has shallow roots and simply extract the layering of the Earth with the help of a knife. You should let the layering a few days before planting it in a separate pot, the extraordinary capacity of the aloe healing will keep it in good condition until it is transplanted.
