Aloe Vera (2-PACK)
Trendy succulents seem to grab the spotlight, but why not grow a succulent that’s beautiful AND beneficial? Aloe needs little help to thrive—it’s a tough plant that offers big rewards, both to your skin and to your garden, indoor or out! Plant aloe in a container inside in bright, direct sunlight, or if your climate is warm year-round, you can add it to the garden. (When temperatures cool to below 50 degrees, bring aloe inside.) Make sure the soil drains well. The clear gel inside an aloe leaf is known for its soothing, wound-healing properties. Keep an aloe plant in the kitchen to cool burns. It’s also an ingredient in many sunburn remedies, so consider adding it to your garden if you’re a sun-worshipper.

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
