3. Replicate the Aloe’s Natural Habitat

Aloe vera, like cacti and other succulents, require dry, sandy soil, which replicates their natural environment. You could use perlite, coarse sand, lava rock, or a mixture of all three. Many garden stores will sell soil mixes, especially for succulents. Once you’ve planted your aloe, spread shells or pebbles over the top layer of dirt. This will help keep the right amount of moisture in.
