Franky is undeniably a great guy - his fleshy green leaves, lined by toothed edges make him a great architectural plant that will thrive off of little watering. However, his medicinal uses and air purifying ability make him the indoor plant that you shouldn't live without.
Our Aloe Vera is available in two sizes:
Plant height (including pot): 20-30cm; Nursery pot width: 12cm
Plant height (including pot): 60-70cm; Nursery pot width: 21cm
Franky will be happiest in a bright spot with lots of indirect light.
Franky doesn't like being overwatered so go easy on him (see 'Watering and feeding').
A big body of research has proven the multitude of benefits of Franky. Not only does he help relieve common sun and kitchen burns when rubbed on the skin, he has also been approved by NASA as one of the best air-purifiers to help remove pollutants from the air.
WATERING AND FEEDING
Unlike other indoor plants, Franky will keep water in his leaves, rather than the soil until he needs it so go easy on the watering. Whilst you want to give him a good water, allow the top inch of soil to dry out before you think about watering him again - this will be about every 7-14 days.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
Franky is toxic to pets and children if consumed.
