Revealing Important Facts about the
Aloe Vera Plant
Did you know that an Aloe Vera plant stays alive for weeks without water and soil?
But Let me tell You ...
It was one day in the very hot summer season I was cleaning out the weeds in my backyard.
I accidentally pulled out an Aloe plant which was growing among the weeds. It was a nice middle sized plant.
I put the Aloe plant on the back porch to plant it the next day because it was getting late. But the next day I forgot all about the plant on the porch. I was getting ready to go on a vacation.
I went on my vacation for a month. I was having a great time – but not my Aloe plant at home.
When I came back the plant was still laying there on the porch waiting. It had a sad brown color. I planted the Aloe plant in the garden.
After a week you would not believe how that plant looked. It was green and growing and had forgotten all about the four weeks suffering.
So the bottom line is ...
... Aloe Vera plants grow easy and are very drought resistant and it is important to grow the Aloe Vera plants organically.
