...it is best growing an Aloe plant indoors in a pot. Place it near a window that gets a lot of sun. You can move the pot outdoors during the summer months.
Watering an Aloe Vera plant
Aloe Vera is a succulent plant, and as such, stores a large quantity of water within its leaves and root system. Don’t wet the Aloe Vera plant when you water the plant, because this causes the leaves and roots to rot.
During the winter months, the plant will become dormant, and utilizes very little moisture. During this period watering should be minimal. Allow the soil to become completely dry before giving the plant a cup or two of water.
Aloe Vera has a shallow, spreading root system, so when it is time to repot choose a wide planter, rather than a deep one. Also use a clay pot, rather than plastic one. Use a planter with a drainage hole to ensure adequate drainage.
