Cultivation of Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera cannot stand cold conditions. Thanks to our warm weather conditions in sandy loam soils, it is quite easy to cultivate this plant in Ghana. They are propagated with their suckers or rhizome cuttings in a pot or at your backyard.
Caring for Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera can be grown indoors and outdoors as well. It prefers 8–10 hours of sunlight a day. However, be careful not put the plant directly under sunlight, otherwise it will wilt.
Giving adequate warmth, plant Aloe Vera in well draining soil. The plant’s nature does not require a lot of watering. Water the plant only when the soil is dry.Make sure there is a way of draining excess water if the plant is being cultivated in a pot.
