With the aim of improving the growth of plants of Aloe barbadensis and A. arborescens
and improve the content of sugars and minerals, several experiments were conducted replacing chabazitic-zeolites with normal inorganic substrates and adding the effective microorganisms (EM) to assess whether they affected plant development. The experiment on both Aloe species involved three treatments: 1) soil; 2) soil with addition of chabazitic-zeolites; and 3) soil with addition of chabazitic-zeolites and treated with EM. The results showed that the use of zeolites and EM microorganisms increased the quality characteristics of Aloe plants under cultivation; specifically plant growth, root
development and production of metabolites useful for nutraceutics.
