The Aloevera mitriformis - Desert Grease plant

Frequently asked questions, FAQ

Is the Aloevera hardy?

The Aloevera loves warmth, and therefore cannot tolerate temperatures below -2 degrees Celsius, so we recommend bringing this plant inside when it is freezing.

How to take care of an Aloevera?

An Aloevera loves a warm place with lots of sunlight, a good breeding ground and also supplementary feeding. A good breeding ground can be provided by means of Florentus Mediterranean Nutrition. This ensures good rooting and provision of the right nutrient base. We also recommend supplementary feeding with 'Ultra Focus', this is high quality Mediterranean plant nutrition that provides extra strength and health. This allows the plant to retain its beautiful deep colours.

When watering the Aloevera?

The Aloevera needs water on a regular basis, but not a lot, because it grows slowly. During the hot days of summer, it needs water every day. If it is a bit colder, it can be once every 2-4 days, depending on the temperature and the pot and the size of the plant. You can feel this from the soil. If the soil is fairly moist, the Aloevera still has enough water.

What kind of land does the Aloevera want?

An Aloevera loves good nutrient soil. For example, you can spoil the root ball with a bag of Florentus Mediterranean Nutrition Soil, specially developed for Mediterranean plants such as the Aloevera, which allows it to root extra well and provides it with the right nutrient base.

When the Aloevera move in?

We recommend bringing the Aloevera inside when it starts to freeze.

Why are the leaves dying off of the Aloevera?

It is possible that the Aloevera gets too little water during the growing season, or too much during less hot days. It can also be caused by hypothermia.

Is the Aloevera toxic to cats / dogs?

The Aloevera contains a gels substance that can be lubricated on the skin without adverse effects, but which should not be taken orally. Taking Aloe Vera is indeed toxic, so it is not recommended to plant an Aloe vera where many animals come.
