Hi Lauren, aloes don't generally need any fertilizer, but if you your plant is struggling, only apply the fertilizer once a year. Look for something that is phosphorus-heavy or use banana peels as an organic option. We stay in South Africa and the Aloes grow wild on the side of the road and we just dump our banana skins around the plants in the garden . You can also make a banana peel tea fertilizer by filling a mason jar with water, and adding the banana peel. Close the lid and let it sit for about 2 days and then water your aloe plant.
Miracle -Gro Succulent Plant Food will do just fine for cacti and as advertised for succulents.
Miracle gro has a special formula for succulents. You would only use that a few weeks after you replant it. Save it for another plant.
Yes I think you can.
Yes no problem
Check the label, but, it should be okay. Good luck and stay safe!
here is info on fertilizing aloe plants
Yes! But a formula better suited for succulents would probably be even better!
Miracle grow has lots of varieties. Look for one specially made for cactus type plants. You should be able to use that for the aloe too.
Yes not much because they take care of themselves
I don't usually give these to my cactus or aloe vera plants, they just seem to do fine with a little water and lots of sun. But, if they seem to be struggling you could try to look for a variety specifically for them.
I have both cactus and aloe. I have found that I can use 1/2 recommendations for the aloe plant. I water it down to 1/4 for the cactus plant. Then I water well and not again for at least 10 days
