When to Water Your Aloe Vera

Overwatering is one of the most common ways that plant parents kill their beloved green pals. It's far too easy to overdo it and cause your plant to become waterlogged and stressed. We've got a little tip that will help you to find the best time to water your plants.

Aloe Vera like to be watered once their soil is completely dry. The best way to check this is to use the finger dip test. All you need to do is pop your index finger into the soil near the stem and push down to your knuckle. If the soil feels dry and your finger comes out looking clean, like in the video, then it's time for your plant to have a drink.
