The aloe vera has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant thanks to the healing properties of the green gel in its leaves. The succulent is enjoyed as both an outdoor garden plant and an indoor house plant. Wherever you raise it, make sure you feed the aloe vera enough water and fertilizer to ensure healthy and vigorous growth.
Water the aloe vera plant. Feeding the plant sufficient amounts of water is crucial for the succulent to maintain its plump green leaves. Administer enough water to thoroughly soak all of the aloe vera plant's substrate material.
Repeat the watering when the soil has dried to a depth of 3 inches.
Feed the aloe vera plant a standard liquid or granular blooming fertilizer with a nutrient ratio of 10-40-10. Such products can be obtained from all garden stores and nurseries. Apply according to the fertilizer's label once in the spring when the aloe vera begins to grow with renewed vigor after its winter dormancy.
