I live in Scotland, and am looking to start growing about 3-4 Aloe Vera plants in my home.

I have been researching a bit and understand it needs sunlight, not too much water, and dry cactus soil type stuff.

I was wondering if anybody had any good knowledge or tips about beginning this?

Literally going to buy pots, soil, and the Aloe plants in the coming week.

Any tips on soil? I was thinking about mixing some homebase cactus soil, with some perlite and rehoming the Aloe's in that in a suitable pot? Think this is a good way to go? Any help you could give, I would love! Appreciate talking to people who know!
