CARE TIPS FOR YOUR ALOE VERA PLANT 
BY PASSION FOR FLOWERS

Hey there, new plant parent! I'm your aloe vera, and let me tell you, taking care of me is a breeze. Think of me as your own personal little doctor, ready to soothe sunburns and add a touch of green to your home! Here's the lowdown on keeping me happy and healthy:

Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine! I crave bright, indirect sunlight. Think sunny windowsill, but not the harsh afternoon glare. Imagine yourself lounging on a beach under an umbrella – that's my ideal light situation.

Watering? Easy does it! Unlike most houseplants, I'm a desert dweller. I store water in my thick leaves, so overwatering is my biggest enemy. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings. Stick your finger in – if it feels bone-dry all the way down, then give me a good soak. Remember, underwatering is better than overwatering – soggy roots are a big no-no! In winter, when things are cooler, I'll need water even less often.

Temperature: No worries, UK homes are perfect for me. I like things warm and sunny, between 65°F and 85°F (18°C and 30°C). Just keep me away from cold drafts and frosty windows (brrr!).

Soil: Drainage is key for my happy roots. Opt for a well-draining cactus potting mix, or add some perlite to regular potting soil for extra drainage. Remember, I'm used to sandy deserts, not waterlogged swamps!

Bonus tip: Want to harvest my magical gel for sunburns or other skin irritations? Simply cut a mature leaf near the base, slice it open, and scoop out the gel inside. But don't take too much – let me keep some for myself to grow strong!

See? Easy as pie! With a little sunshine, occasional watering, and well-draining soil, I'll be a happy addition to your home and your natural medicine cabinet. Now, relax, enjoy some greenery, and let's grow together!
