How can I use aloe vera as a fertilizer for flowering plants?
(Thanks for A2A)
To use aloe vera as a fertiliser, you have to extract organic part(i.e. aloe vera gel) as well as concentrated raw material(i.e.concentrated/unfiltered aloe vera juice). However,organic part is the main part of fertiliser as it is responsible for providing beneficial polysaccharides and phytochemicals to the plants. Concentrated raw material can be used to along with it to prevent insect,pest and bird attack.
- How to extract organic part?
- Cut some leaves.Use a sharp knife to cut safely.
- Clean with water.
- Cut the top 1/3rd portion of the leaves.
- Remove the spines using a knife.
- Cut the leaf from middle(lateral section).
- Using a knife,slide over the gel and collect it.
- How to extract raw material/unfiltered part?
- After extracting the gel from aloe vera leaves,scrape the remaining part of leaves.
- Collect the viscous liquid in a vessel.
Use atleast 3 year mature plant of aloe vera for better results.Apart from these,you may also collect molasses and seaweeds.
- How to make fertiliser?
- Take a container or a small bin.
- Put a layer of soil.
- Then,put the organic part and raw material(80%) and molasses and/or seaweeds(20%).
- Sprinkle few drops of water.
- Close it tightly with a lid and let it ferment.
- After 7–8 days, open and stir the mixture with spade.
- Stir it every 2–3 days for a week and then you can add it to your garden soil or flowering pots as per your requirement.
Before planting,you can soak the seeds in a vessel containing the fertiliser. In the juvenile phase, the fertiliser should be added in more amount and the amount should be decreased gradually as the plant shifts to the flowering or reproductive stage.
I hope the answer helped you.
Happy Gardening To You!

Liquid Soil Improver / Fertilizer and Raw Material
Our company AloveBali specializes in the highest quality Aloe Vera Liquid Soil Improver / Fertilizer and Aloe Raw Material that is grown from volcanic rich soil in tropical Bali. Our unique Organic Liquid Fertilizer has the perfect synergy of Aloe Vera, Seaweed, Natural Ingredients and Functional Microorganisms. This particular product is a complete Biofertilizer with micro nutrients, amino acids, plant growth regulators, enzymes and humic acid. You will be guaranteed that you will enhance your soil fertility for sustainable farming and agriculture no matter what the size of your project.
The unique blend for our Aloe Biofertilizer consists of 80% Organic Aloe Vera which provides the beneficial Natural Phytochemicals and Polysaccerides /acemannan that are necessary for superior plant intelligence. Plants know what they want, and so they respond positively with a happier growth thanks to an enriched soil fertility. This then leads to healthier plants that have a strong immune system which then happily provide a higher yield and more nutritious crops. The Aloe Vera majority ingredient also acts as the perfect “carrier” for the Beneficial Microbes and the other additional Natural Ingredients that are in the formula. The plant root system receives a very effective stimulation and a very high absorption rate that suck up the available beneficial nutrients. Additionally, Aloe Vera can suppress negative plant pathogens plus so much more. We also recommend and have available an Aloe Vera Raw Material that can be used singularly or combined with the Aloe Biofertilizer as a folliar spray that also acts as a plant growth promoter and also has been shown to reduce Bird, Flying Fox (bat) and Insect (pest) attacks on crops. (Historically no Aloe Vera Plants are ever bothered by any type of pest because of its natural Aloin content) This is a great environmentally friendly way to deter these pests for all growers. ()
Our products are a real solution to the damage that the earth has endured from hash chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides that are being used by many farmers and agricultural systems. Eg. Previously in the 1970’s it would take 100KG of synthetic fertilizers to treat a one hectare rice paddy, and now farmers need up to 400KG of the same synthetic fertilizer to apply to the same hectare to maintain the same yield. The soil is becoming more and more depleted and is not responding naturally with healthy conditions. This is a big problem that cannot continue as the situation is not sustainable. We strongly believe that our superior Aloe Vera Biofertilizer is the “KEY” to heal the soil.
Our mother earth is very proud of AloveBali’s mission and vision to replenish her soil so she can once again flourish with an abundance of nutritious food. These yields will therefore nourish and revitalize all people on our magnificent planet. Our promise as an environmentally conscious company is that every one Wins. We win only when the Earth, Environment, Farmers and the People / Consumers win.
We are inspired onwards by quotes like this below to provide solutions and a better future for everyone in the world….
A bridge can no longer be built from thinking to will and action. Food plants no longer contain
the forces people need for this. So long as one feeds on food from unhealthy soil,
the spirit will lack the stamina to free itself from the prison of the body”
– Rudolf Steiner – Creator of BioDynamics (1861-1925)

Tips For Fertilizing Aloe Plants – What’s The Best Aloe Vera Fertilizer
Aloes make wonderful houseplants – they’re low maintenance, hard to kill, and handy if you have a sunburn. They’re also beautiful and distinct, so everyone who comes to your house will recognize them. But would these tough plants benefit from a little extra care? Keep reading to learn more about fertilizing aloe plants.
Is Feeding an Aloe Plant Necessary?
Aloe plants are succulents and, like pretty much all of their close relatives, they need very little attention in order to thrive. In fact, one of the worst things you can do for an aloe is look after it too closely, and root rot from over watering is one of the leading causes of aloe demise.
So, does the same
hold for fertilizer? Yes and no. Aloe plants are adapted to very poor desert soils and can survive with very little in the way of nutrients, but that doesn’t mean they won’t benefit from the occasional feeding.
As long as you don’t overdo it, fertilizing aloe plants,especially those growing in containers, will work wonders for keeping them healthy and happy.
How and When to Feed Aloe Plants
Aloe vera fertilizer needs are few and far between. It’s best to limit your applications to the growing season, starting in the spring.
For aloe plants in the garden, a single drenching in the spring ought to be enough to last the whole year. For potted plants, more frequent applications are necessary, roughly once per month.
The best fertilizers to use are liquid 10-40-10 houseplant mixes, or mixes designed specifically for succulents. Avoid granular fertilizers. If your aloe is in a container, water it thoroughly the day before feeding. This should flush out any lingering salts and reduce the risk of tip burn.
When in doubt, always err on the side of less fertilizer when feeding an aloe. These plants need very little in the way of nutrients, and while a little boost is good for them, too much of a good thing will quickly overwhelm them.
