a potted Aloe Plant
For Months of Longevity:
1- Water aloe deeply but then allow the soil to dry at least 1 to 2 inches deep between watering, in order to discourage rot; water even less in winter.
2- Water weekly, and ensure the soil is damp. Don't re-water until soil is dry.
Aloe plants are a self-regenerating first-aid kit. They bring clean air to your home.
