Aloe Vera is a succulent plant used for several years for its multiple benefits. Aloe gel is recognized in different fields, including cosmetic, medicinal and edible. This practical and versatile plant is also charming. Its green, fleshy and triangular foliage brings a desert touch to any chosen decor. The Barbadensis variety is the most common and the one used in the food industry, it is recognized by the young shoots dotted with white and its yellow flowering. It requires little watering, but lots of light.
