    Aloe Vera is said to bring luck and prosperity. They create a good vibe and a positive energy in the indoor spaces. Aloe Vera is called as "Plant of immortality" due to its medicinal value and resistant nature (They do not die or give up easily even in the worst conditions).

    When does Aloe Vera flower?

    If your aloe plant doesn't bloom don't be surprised. Only mature plants (i.e. 3 to 4 years old) will bloom. Aloe Vera are succulent variants and they can thrive in bright sunlight. Aloe Vera growing indoors have a very low chance of blooming as they receive insufficient or low sunlight.

    The flowers produced by Aloe Vera can last for a very long. The flowers spike up to a great height and are quite hard. The bright orange or yellow flowers loosely hang from the spike creating a beautiful view. The Aloe Vera flowers attract bees due to bright colored flowers and they contain a high concentration of nectar.
