Full Answer

Aloe vera that is grown in a container only blooms if it is located by a window that gets a substantial amount of direct sunlight or if it is in a bright, sunny location outdoors. A mature aloe vera plant is more likely to bloom if it is fertilized lightly with a liquid fertilizer, such as a 10-40-10 bloom-type fertilizer. In the U.S., aloe vera thrives outdoors year-round in Zones 10, 11 and 12.
