Viv, an Aloe Vera, has to be one of the most recognisable plants there is, probably because the gel inside her leaves is famed for soothing burns, but Viv is so much more!
She can be found all over the world and in the wild could grow to a meter wide. She’s unlikely to flower in the UK, but should you be lucky enough to see one, it’ll be bright red and resemble a hot poker!
Viv, Aloe Vera - Medium
Viv prefers bright indirect light without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
