Aloe Vera the wonder plant is one of those plants which is very easy to plant and maintain.Aloe vera originates form North Africa. Aloe vera is now planted all warm climates of the world.

Aloe Vera is a stemless or very short-stemmed plant growing to 80-100 cm tall, spreading by offsets and root sprouts. The leaves are lanceolate, thick and fleshy, green to grey-green, with a serrated margin. Aloe Vera has the remarkable ability to heal wounds, ulcer and burns. It is also used in a number of skin disorders.

Aloe Vera comes from the aloe vera plant and may be squeezed from its leaves. Purchasing and learning to care for an Aloe Vera plant through the summer can be a wonderfully relieving investment.
