How can I grow an aloe vera plant quickly while using it?
I just bought an aloe vera plant. The biggest leaf was about 35cm long and about 4 cm in width. I keep cutting the top of the biggest leaf and using the gel but I think if I keep using it, it won’t grow back in time and soon I’ll run out. What’s the best way to grow it while using it at the same time? I keep it indoors in a fairly small pot, and it’s winter over here in England.

The leaf you are cutting won’t “grow back” – it just gets shorter.

The plant will sustain itself by growing new leaves and creating offsets which are small plants that start near the base. This is a natural process and just takes time.

If you’re using the aloe faster than the plant can keep up, then you need to get more plants.

There’s no way to speed up growth.
