: : my plant is dying, advice on watering, sun or shady position, warm or cool place. Thank you
You can always do a search at www.google.com using quotes and a plus sign like this: "aloe vera" + " growing conditions". Here's a site I found that way.
For the watering you basically water when the first top inch of soil is dry. Put your finger in to the first knuckle. Don't let sit in water in the saucer. Full sun is best. Put a tablespoon of milk in the watering can from time to time. It will help with bloom and root development. Or you could just fill the empty milk container with water and use to water your plants. Since I've been doing this, my aloe has bloomed! Use on all your houseplants.
