Light: Place your Hedgehog Aloe in a well-lit area of your home. Hedgehog loves a sunny area and flourishes in direct sunlight. It will not thrive if permanently placed away from a window.

Watering: Water once the soil has completely dried out. Be careful not to overwater- their succulent leaves hold a lot of moisture, making them drought resistant.

Temperature: Normal room temperatures between 65-75 degrees.

Humidity: Average home humidity; prefers dryer climate.  

Toxicity: Toxic to pets

 

Trouble Shooting

Stalk turning brown, mushy or drooping: suggests too much water or not enough sun.

Stalk shriveling or wrinkling: indicates plant not getting enough water. While the Hedgehog requires very little water, they do require some water, so don’t forget about them completely.

You can place the hedgehog in full outdoor sun during the summer months. With the right conditions may produce soft-orange blooms that attract hummingbirds. If placed outdoors, it will require a bit more water. Look out for wilting leaves—this is a result of inadequate water in the summer.
