How often should I water my Aloe vera plant?
I have two aloe vera plants. I was watering them ever week and they were very sick looking. Then I tried watering it every couple of weeks and it was doing better but still not great. What do I need to do to help it grow big and strong like some I have seen out and about.

Answer by laura b
I just got my first aloe vera plant two months ago.

1. Water the plant only when the soil is completely dry. Too much
water is a bad thing for these plants. It’s different depending on the size of the pot. A smaller pot requires more frequent watering as it dries faster. A larger pot requires less watering.

2. Make sure you are giving it plant food. They need the nutrients.

3. Also – Their roots grow shallow not deep, so a wide plant pot is recommended. Terra Cotta pots are the best as they are porous which allows for better air circulation, etc…

Hope this helps

How often do you water aloe vera?
I think I watered my aloe vera too often, about once a month. The leaves started shriveling up. Now that I let it dry out, I’m getting lots of new growth.

How Often Should I Use Aloe Vera Gel On My Sunburn?

How Often Should I Use Aloe Vera Gel On My Sunburn?
I got sunburned today on my back and shoulders and my shoulders hurt quite a lot. And trust me I’m never not using sunscreen again. Anyways I was wondering how often should I apply aloe vera gel to my sunburn? I figured just as needed would be ok but I wanted a second opinion. And is there anything else I could use to ease the pain or help get rid of it. Thanks.

Aloe vera gel usually soaks into skin within the first 30 minutes, but it would be best to wait atleast 45 minutes before applying more gel to your burn, just to make sure the previous application of aloe vera is completely soaked in & dry.

How often should I be putting aloe vera on a sunburn?
My face has been burnt for almost a week now and I have huge red blotches all over my face so I’ve been loading the aloe vera on it to keep it moist. Should I just let it heal on its own? Or should I keep putting a lot of aloe vera on it to keep it moist? I don’t wanna do the wrong thing because I want it to heal as quick as possible.

Let it dry up a little bit dont keep it moist constantly but make sure you put it on there at least three times a day:)!

Answer by yellowjeff
I’ve seen them thrive on every variation, yet I can’t keep one alive either. My buddy has mountains of them hanging out in the yard, totally ignored most of the time in buckets, in the sun, shade, cold, and they do fine.
But they say, just damp once in a while. They are a desert plant.

Answer by SteelAngel
The only watering problem you will have is if you water it too much. Once a week or when the top of the soil fells dry should do it. Just make sure it gets allot of bright light. Near a sunny window.

My aloe plants are struggling. I have other plants and they do fine. I was told maybe I was watering them to much. Can I get a little green thumb guidance? Thanks for your help!
