Q.Aloe vera

Zone Guildford, Surrey, England | Anonymous added on March 4, 2019 | Answered

I was told in the Canary Island (Fuerteventura) where I got my aloe vera that it was an outdoor plant. I did wonder whether our climate would be warm enough – certainly during the freezing weather I returned to! – so having put it in a pot (of ordinary soil, as advised out there) I have kept it indoors so far.
On reading information at https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/aloe-vera/aloe-vera-plant-care.htm I now realise I need to get some special soil. Should I then keep it indoors all year round?

Aloe Vera grows where average minimum temperatures stay above 30 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer it tolerates lows from 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and in winter it does not do well in temperatures under 40 degrees Fahrenheit
