The Aloe vera is originally from the Middle East and parts of North Africa. The plant is widely known for its medicinal properties, which were already known in ancient Greece. During the Middle Ages it was a must-have for every first aid box. Aloe vera was used as a laxative and as a medicine for wounds. Even today the plant is used as an ingredient in medicine and cosmetics. Note: this Aloe vera is grown as an ornamental plant, and therefore not suitable for use for consumption or for cosmetic purposes. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be useful in your home. Aloe vera is an air-purifying houseplant: it filters all kinds of harmful substances from the air. The plant is fairly easy to care for. Aloe is a succulent, and stores water in its leaves. This allows the plant to survive without water for quite some time. Place the plant in a light spot or in the sun.
The classic terracotta pot included with the Aloe vera is ideal to create more warmth in your interior.

Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
