Plants: Somalian Aloe
Vessel: 8 oz mason jar
Other ingredients: Succulent soil, foraged sea pebbles, perlite, peat moss.
About: Beautifully intricate patters on the leaves, tolerant of low light situations and the occasional flower shoot with marvelous pinkish orange flowers. What’s not to love about this little Aloe?!
Watering: Water 1-2x per month or as soil dries out by adding a few drops of water to the base of the aloe. These plants are extremely resilient and don’t require much. A tiny bit of residual moisture is okay, but the succulents should NEVER be sitting in wet swampy soil. It’s much better to let them dry out completely than to over water them.
Keep in mind, the general advice for outdoor succulents in a cool to moderate climate is to water once per week in the summer and once per month in the winter allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, so as to mimic their native conditions of hot stormy summers and cold dry winters. Indoors, and in terrarium style planters, succulents will require even less water.
Lighting & Temperature: Bright, indirect light is ideal. These are generally intended for indoor use, or in a protected, covered outdoor space.
In the garden, these plants can withstand some direct light, but they prefer to be protected from too harsh of rays from the sun. Indoors, they do great with bright, indirect lighting. Temperature should stay in the 70’s on average - basically, average indoor temperature.
Occasional swings up into the 80's and even down into the 50’s are absolutely fine. The main concern is that since these terrariums are in glass jars, care should be taken to ensure the roots aren’t exposed to adverse conditions. For instance, best not to leave it in a spot where the sun beats down on the glass all afternoon - don’t wanna steam those roots!
