I believe that the aloe plant that is sold as a houseplant is
aloe verda, or close enough to it. It is also called "burn plant",
and for sure it is a great help with minor kitchen burns. Break
one of the leaves and smear the juice on a minor burn or scald,
and it really takes the pain away. I wouldn't recommend it for any
serious burn, though, one that forms blisters.
    It is often possible to get one from a friend. It keeps forming
offshoots, just pull them off, let them dry a day or two, and then
root in moist soil.

Yes, you can grow it indoors. I don't know where to puchase any, but I got
mine from my mother who got hers from her mother. I've given several
shoots to friends and they've had no problems growing indoors. Good
gardening!

My experience is that Aloe Vera is extremely easy to grow indoors. Apply
the usual wisdom for houseplants and you will keep your AV happy.

Yes, it can be grown indoors, though if you put it outdoors in the
spring/summer make sure it is in filtered light or it will get very
anemic looking, sort of yellowy and sickly. I have mine on my front
porch in a pot behind a shrub to cut the amount of sun, though I just
brought it in for the first freeze of the season expected tonight, BRRR!

I live in zone 4, where winters can be very ***. Both my mother
and I have Aloe Vera. These never went outside. So yes you can grow
them inside.

Yes, it will grow indoors easily.

Don't overwater it, give it plenty of sun and it will live forever!

Yes, I have an Aloe Vera, about three years old, sitting in a south
window.  It's planted in a round terra cotta shallow bowl and it has
several "babies" coming out around it.  I set it outside on the patio in
the summer.

Aloe Vera is one of the easies and most common of house plants,  For years
I have always kept one near the kitchen for 1 st aid tfor burns,  also
works well for rashes.  Simply split a leaf and rub on the effected area.

Can take almost any lite condition,  I water mine weekly and the do well.
