Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a hardy succulent that's easy to grow. It thrives in poor soil and requires very little water. The gel that comes from its thick leaves is widely used to cool sunburns. Plant aloe vera in full sun. It's also ideal for containers; just be sure to let the soil dry out between watering.
