May House Plant of The Month
Aloes are a must-have houseplant, which come in all shapes and sizes and form stemless rosettes of fleshy leaves. Aloe plants are renowned for their medicinal purposes, with their sap used widely in medicine, cosmetics and well-being products. The great thing about aloe plants is that they are ideal for all rooms in your home. They do like a bright spot and can tolerate direct sunlight but beware if they are placed too near glass, they can scorch. Finally they like to be kept on the dry side, so ensure you don’t over-water.
