For showing beautifully pink to reddish leaves, Aloe “Vito” has to be placed in full to partial sunlight and be exposed to the sun for at least 3 hours a day. The summer it can spent in the garden or on the balcony. There it has to be slowly accustomed to the sun, which is no longer filtered through a window.
Regular mixes for cacti and succulents can be used or a mixture of regular potting soil, bird sand and pumice (2:1:1).
Allow the soil to dry or nearly dry between the waterings. Water sparingly in winter. If Aloe “Vito” is placed outside during summer, the pot should not stand in a saucer or overpot so that the rainwater can run off.
Every 4th to 8th week from spring to fall. Feed with cacti liquid fertilizer or a standard liquid fertilizer at half strength. A recently bought or repotted plant don’t need to be fed for the first year.
Aloe “Vito” tolerates warm locations all year round. If it does not want to bloom, a temperate winter spot at 15 to 20 °C (59 to 68 °F) can be stimulating. Minimum temperature is 10 °C (50 °F).
Aloe “Vito” can be grown from shoots.
