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