: How often do I need to water my aloe vera, and how warm do I need to keep it? I live in Michigan, so we have a long, cold winter ahead. Any other tips for taking good care of it? Thanks.
Your aloe is a succulent and stores water in its leaves. Water when the top inch or so of the soil is dry. Allow the water to run through the pot and empty the saucer. Give it full sun in a south or west facing window and away from drafts.
