Welcome to The Bio Dude!
To strengthen the plant and to help it grow faster the Dude recommends utilizing his BioShot when planting succulents. This helps with their sturdiness as a plant and their overall health.

Common Name: Aloe & Jade Plant
Scientific Name: Aloe sp. & Crassula ovata or Portulacaria afra
-Care Recommendations By The Dude-
Best for These Animals:
Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFirma, TerraSahara, Some TerraAranea
Soil Depth: Shallow to Moderate with proper drainage
Humidity & Misting: 0%-40% / Not Required
Mature Plant Size & Root System: There are over 500 species of Aloe, but the hybrids and cultivars selected by The Dude tend to stay compact at maturity / Shallow, wide fibrous root system
Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: High / Front (low) or corner placement recommended
Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Non-Toxic if consumed though these succulents are typically used for ornamental not edible purposes. When ingested succulents help re-hydrate your pet as well as provide enrichment for your animals by allowing them to instinctively forage for food. Excessive consumption of succulents can cause runnier stool, but it will not hurt your herbivore or omnivore.
