How do I get an Aloe Vera plant to flourish?
I have a couple of Aloe Vera plants that just won’t seem to do well. I’ve seen beautiful plants that are thick and lush. Mine have only a few skinny stalks/leaves and the leaves seem to seem to die easily. They are in regular flower pots and as you water them, over the months, the shallow roots become exposed due to soil settlement. Because the roots are so shallow, I feel like all of the moisture drains to the bottom and the roots near the surface die from lack of water. Am I watering too much? Should I use a different type of container, perhaps more shallow or use a differenty type of growing medium such as pea gravel? Should I fertilize them? My normally green thumb is brown when it comes to aloe. Help!

What step should I apply aloe vera juice to my natural hair?

What step should I apply aloe vera juice to my natural hair?
I have natural 4b/c hair. When should I apply aloe vera juice to my hair?
I normally co-wash then apply care free curl gold, then seal with extra virgin olive oil. I may go back to using shea butter after the oil.

But when does the aloe juice come into play?

Answer by Tiffany
I apply aloe vera juice to my hair, but not alone. The aloe vera juice is really moisturizing, and it lowers the ph of your hair. The mix that i usually use is a leave in (usually Kinky Curly Knot Today), aloe vera juice, jojoba oil, and castor oil. I got this mix from KimmayTube on YouTube – she’s a natural who worked for a while to come up with this mixture. I use it as a leave in after washing, and i tweak it to use it as a daily moisturizer sometimes too. you can tweak it to your liking, but the addition of the aloe vera juice does WONDERS for the hair. Hope this helps!

My aloe vera plant is wilting and turning brown at the tips.?

My aloe vera plant is wilting and turning brown at the tips.?
My horticulture teacher at my high school let the students take a plant home as an end of the year gift. My house has gotten a bit chilly and I think that’s why it may be wilting. The green house where it was before was warm and moist, and the aloe vera was not in direct sunlight, now it’s in my house on the window sill in the kitchen. I have only watered it once, so I know it’s not under watering. What should I do to nurse it back to health? It’s going to be a while before it heats up here so I can’t put it outdoors. Thanks in advance for any responses.
