How much water should I give my aloe Vera?
It’s in a 8 inch pot. And it has a “wingspan ” of 16 inches. I’m not sure how much to water it. I know it should be water every couple weeks or so but how much water?

Also, is there a way to determine how old my aloe plant is? Thanks! 🙂

No way to determine the age however the soil should be a well drained soil full of fertilizer and when you water it do it untill the soil is “fluffy”

At what intervals does the aloe plant give flowers?
I have had a sapling of a aloe plant for 2 years…
I’ve heard they give flower once every 14 years… is that true?

I think someone is confusing them with century plants or agaves which are a very similar looking plant.

Agaves also have a common name of American aloe.
“…Common names include century plant, maguey (in Mexico), or American aloe (it is not, however, closely related to the genus Aloe). The name “century plant” refers to the long time the plant takes to flower. The number of years before flowering occurs depends on the vigor of the individual plant, the richness of the soil and the climate; during these years the plant is storing in its fleshy leaves the nourishment required for the effort of flowering.”

Hi! I’m a teen girl who wants to get a YouTube/Blogger to maybe review beauty products. I’d like to know some brands that send samples to reviewers for them to review? I know for one that Yes to Carrots does so. Anymore more you can think of? Thanks!
