How to reinvigorate the Aloe Vera plant

The Aloe Vera plant possesses a set of unique properties, especially regarding the gel contained within the leaves. It must always be exposed to direct sunlight for 4 hours a day in the morning, then cared for as per the advice of the gardener who sells it.

As mentioned, this is a succulent plant that resists very well to any type of sudden change in temperature or inappropriate human actions. In general it is always beautiful and does not present problems, but in some cases it could rot or dry out . The first thing to do in case of dry or rotten leaves is to remove them immediately, to then understand what happened to them.

It is a plant with particular characteristics, for this reason it is not resistant to frost. If it is placed outside in sub-zero temperatures it will suffer a great deal of damage. The same goes for frost or hailstorms.

When this happens, the plant is filled with dark spots warning that the damage suffered is very serious. The farmer’s method involves bringing the plant into the house immediately or into a sheltered greenhouse.

Irrigation: can the plant dry out or rot?

There are also cases in which the plant can suffer due to too much or too little water. At this point its leaves will be dry or it will have completely rotten roots. The succulent plant will need to be watered two or three times a week, only when the soil is dry.

The soil where it is grown must be draining, while the pot has holes in its surface.

If the leaves are dry or rotten it is important to remove them immediately, change the destination pot and ensure that the plant receives nourishment, lighting and correct watering.

When the plant is badly watered , the central leaves rot and even fungi could emerge that completely affect the plant. It is important to proceed immediately, even asking for help from an expert on the aloe vera plant.

In any case, as anticipated, the plant must be extracted from the pot by removing the damp and wet earth. Then a natural fungicide is sprayed to counteract the arrival of the fungi or eliminate them. The area is wrapped in a napkin and left to rest for a few hours. Immediately afterwards, the plant is planted again in a pot with draining soil and peat and then watered after a week.
