How To Harvest The Plant
It’s easy to harvest an aloe plant for gel and juice inside it’s leaves. You need a mature plant that is at least a few years old. This ensures a higher concentration of the active ingredients found in the plant.
It’s also advisable to wait a few weeks before cutting leaves from the same plant. It’s a good idea to have a few plants on rotation if you plan to harvest the aloe regularly.
To harvest your aloe plant for gel and juice (from healthline.com):
- Remove 3-4 leaves at a time, choosing thick leaves from the outer sections of the plant.
- Ensure the leaves are healthy and free of any mold or damage.
- Cut them close to the stem. Most of the beneficial nutrients are found at the base of the leaves.
- Avoid the roots.
- Wash and dry the leaves.
- Trim the prickly edges with a knife.
- Using a knife or your fingers, separate the interior gel from the outside of the leaf. The interior gel is the part of the aloe that you’ll use.
- Allow the yellow sap to drain from the leaf. This is the aloe vera latex. If you plan to use the latex, you can catch this in a container. If you’re not planning to use the latex, you can dispose of it.
- Cut the aloe gel into slices or cubes.
