Sales tax included as usual. No drain hole for mess free watering. This aloe likes bright light. I have had it on a window sill that gets a little sun. It also can handle totally dry soil for a day or two if indoors before watering well but not left standing in water. The tray (for reference) is 10.5" long, and the planter is 5" across. I have a few other colors if you prefer I change the planter. A sort of burgundy mauve, royal or navy blue (not sure which it is), chartreuse which looks a little yellow compared to the plant, and an orange-red.
