First Aid Plant(Aloe Vera) Herb in 9cm Pot

Aloe vera needs no introduction really, it is commonly known as the first aid plant Chinese Aloe, Indian Aloe, True Aloe, Barbados Aloe or Burn Aloe. Aloe vera is an architecturally attractive succulent plant that is particularly associated with herbal remedies, as extracts are used in the treatment of skin complaints and burns. 

The plant itself has no stem, or a very short stem with the thick leaves growing in a strap-like formation from the plant, and it can reach up to 100cm in its native setting. The leaves are grey green or green in colour, and can have white flecks on the upper surface, with the edges of the leaves being toothed/serrated. In the summer, the aloe vera can flower, sending up a long stem, upon which a red/orange tubular flower spike is seen.

To grow Aloe vera, it is important that they are kept warm, minimum temperature of 10'C is recommended and they should be kept dry, with watering restricted, especially in Winter. Aloe vera does not tolerate frost and should be brought indoors in the colder parts of the year. As they reproduce by producing off-sets (small plants from the original plant), these can be removed and potted on, ensuring a constant supply of leaves. Great as a house plant or in the conservatory or greenhouse.

Herb Usage

Aloe vera is used the world over for its medicinal qualities, and is sold as a herbal preparation and as an ingredient in many cosmetic products.  It is perhaps best known for its ability to soothe burns and scalds with its cooling sap, in fact the fleshy leaves can be broken off and the gel within applied directly to bites, sunburn etc for relief from itching and to aid recovery.
