In general plants that are dormant and have lost their leaves do not transpire
and so do not need a lot of water.
To have healthy roots, water every couple of weeks.or so.

It is very important is to keep your tools clean.
Spray with alcohol after treating a plant with a bug problem.
I sometimes wash the leaves with very hot water, if the leaves
are thick and if they have bug issues.

Aloe care

Soil
I mix 1 part peat moss to two parts perlite and I provide good drainage which is crucial.

Fertilizers
I use a 20-20-20 water soluble fertilizer which is hooked up to my hose with a siphon available at most nurseries.

Watering
If you are uncertain as to how dry your plants are and whether you should water, get a water meter. It is worth a small
investment. Remember It is better to underwater succulents then to overwater. Too much water will rot your roots.
Water lightly in summer as Aloes are winter growers.

Frost
Aloes do poorly in frost temperatures, so be sure to bring them inside in winter. Better to be warm than sorry.

Sun
I give my younger aloes some shade. Sun will help mature plants flower. The sun turns many succulents a red color which is
atractive but not so friendly to their skin. I prefer shading my succulents for a bright green color.
