Before purchasing your Aloe, it is always wise to ensure that you have found a good sunny spot for it. An aloe vera plant does tolerate shade as well but it undoubtedly performs much better in the sun with flowers to show as proof.
Planting the Aloe vera in a pot may benefit it quite a bit. It is important to be careful while planting the aloe leaf edges are quite spiky.
In Dubai, the summer sun can at times be quite strong so if you feel the leaves are turning brown you could shift it to a slightly shaded area for a while. Being a succulent, the Aloe Vera does not really require too much water. During the winter months, it is better to watch carefully and water only when the soil completely dries out.
