Aloe is more or less succulent shrubby perennials, spiked, with or without organized white spots and may vary in both size and height with fleshy fibrous roots.  Leaves are arranged spirally in a rosette, very thick and fleshy and containing a colourless, yellow, brown or purple sap for which they are valued.  It is very cactus-like in its characteristics. This unique plant also belongs to a larger plant family called "Xeroids". Studies on the aloe leaf reveal that there are over 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, and 12 vitamins in the plant.  The medicinal and nutritional possibilities for members of the aloe family are varied .

Aloes do best in a warm environment with an ample amount of strong light. They can do well with some direct sunlight part of the day. They do not tolerate freezing temperatures. They can grow quite large in a greenhouse and need only be re-potted when absolutely necessary. Cut the lower leaves for medicinal use as the plant grows from the center outward. Do not over water and you need only fertilize moderately during the warmer months. Good drainage is essential.
