Aloe vera plants are typically very easy to care for. They are succulent plants which means they keep moisture in their leaves. Aloe vera plants do not require an abundance of water, but they do require a great deal of sunlight. Some signs to look for in determining the health of your aloe vera is the position of the leaves (they should be pointing up, not down), the color of the leaves (green, not brown) and the texture of the leaves (hard, not soft). If your plant seems to be suffering, there are things you can do to revive it.

Bring sick aloe vera plants back to life by prpviding plenty of light.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Water your aloe vera only when the soil feels dry to the touch. Place the pot on a tray, and water it until the water seeps onto the tray. You can also pour water in the tray, and water the plant from the bottom up.

Step 4

Apply fertilizer to your aloe plant in the spring. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer's label.
