description for "Cacti and Succulents: Aloe Vera"

Aloe Vera is a slow growing succulent that reaches an average height of 18-20 inches when kept potted. Aloe has its origins in Tropical Africa. The Greeks and Romans used the gel, found inside the thick leaf blades, for wounds and burns. We recommend aloe be kept indoors except in Southern California, Arizona and Florida.
