I was just wondering if anyone had any info. abut growing aloe vera hydroponically, or aero ponically???

Hey erin,

I don't think you could do it hydroponically at all. These plants come from a dry climate and would definitely rot in water.

As far as aeroponically I don't think so. Their roots are very thick. and most air plants have very thin roots from what I've seen. But you may want to put a post down in houseplants with this question.

We have some really knowledgeable people down there who could tell you a bunch more.

Me I'm pretty much a beginner.

Welcome Erin, we're glad you found us!

I agree with TK, I've had plants rot from overwatering potted in soil. I'm not sure either about aeroponically growing them, but I've never read anything about it.
