📚 Aloe arborescens Care Guide

Aloe arborescens is a large, multi-headed, sprawling succulent. Its leaves are green with a slight blue tint. It has a thick central woody trunk with many branches, much like a candelabra in shape, hence its common name. The leaves can be used as treatment for constipation, when eaten as a vegetable, or for burns and wounds, when split or crushed fresh.
Aloe arborescens details
💧️ Water - Low Water OR Medium Water
Low Water Needs

Aloe arborescens is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

For Aloe arborescens, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

Growing Outdoors
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Aloe arborescens in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place Aloe arborescens near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your Aloe arborescens a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
Moderate Water Needs
Aloe arborescens requires a moderate amount of water. You will want to allow the top few inches of soil dry in between waterings. As a general rule of thumb, depending on where you have planted and how much light your Aloe arborescens receives, you may need to water once a week.

Growing Indoors
If you are growing indoors or in a container, you can always check the moisture of the soil by using your thum or finger. Stick it in the soil -- if it is dry, then you will likely want to water your Aloe arborescens.

Pot selection is also important to keep your Aloe arborescens from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom. Drainage holes also allow air to get into the soil from the bottom of the pot. Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepAloe arborescens from getting too wet. Terracotta and other similar materials allow water to wick away from the soil faster than they would in a plastic pot.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Aloe arborescens outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly. If you have planted in a sunny area, you will likely need to water this plant more often than if it is planted in a shady area. The type of soil you plant in is also important. Sandy and loamy soils tend to dry out much quicker. You can always amend soil with organic material such as peat moss or compost to encourage moisture retention.
