Aloe are one of the most well known houseplants, and for good reason. Native to Africa and Madagascar, Aloe are sun loving and incredibly tolerant to drought. Being a type of succulent, they retain moisture in their bulbous leaves so you can safely go 2 weeks without watering and your plant will be just fine. In the summer months, try placing your Aloe outside in a sunny spot. Aloe are flowering plants and will do so if provided enough sunlight.
