Aloe are arguably one of the world's most popular succulent varieties. These upright succulents are easy to care for and grow best in dry conditions. Take care to use a well-drained potting soil as aloe do not grow well in standing water. Some of our mixtures could contain the most popular Aloe Vera variety, but most will not as they are much taller and do not ship well in the same tray as other shorter varieties. If you are looking for Aloe Vera, we recommend getting a tray of them to accompany this mixture.

. If the plant sits in moist soil for an extended amount of time, you could end up with root rot, stem rot or botrytis. Botrytis grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis and root rot are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label's instructions.
