Aloe Vera was plentiful in the Southwest U.S. where I lived the past 28 years. It's a wonderful plant--if you have a burn or scrape or sunburn just break off a piece of it and rub it on the hurt place. It will heal much faster than with any other treatment. Don't water it too much. It should be plump and look full of moisture and may even turn a little dark when it's healthy. Don't keep the soil moist, it needs to dry out between waterings. It's of the class called "Succulents", a desert plant, so if you overwater it, it will get sick and rot. Every couple of weeks might even be too much, depending on if you have a humid climate. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings, though!

Actually it's my mother who is a plant lover. The front of our house are full of flowering plants. I don't know the other names, but she had orchids, roses and sunflower.

Most of the plants that i grow are those that we bought. Some of them i get from neighbours and relatives who also grow plants.. I too have got aloevera in my garden. there are many varieties of aloevera. I have got one that can be eaten and it is of very good medicinal value.. The other one is for skin problems. it has slight white markings on it.. They dont need much of care as it is very hot climate here and it suits the plant very well.. The plant that i am most interested in now is my papaya tree which is loaded with fruits and not even one has ripened. THey are still dark green and i am left wondering as to when i will be able to eat them....
