Thanks all of your for a quick response. My Basic intention is to grow aloe plant in a professional way and process the gel mechanically.
For this I need a proper guide line for some body so i can start in coming spring season.
I can't tell you anything about processing the gel, but rest assured, there's nothing hard about growing the plants! If you live in the south - anywhere that it will grow (catalogs should tell you its hardiness zone), you can stick it in the ground, water if the ground gets too dry, and watch it grow.
When we moved to a home in southern California, the side yard was a mass of Spanish bayonet (aptly named!). We cleared it all out, and found that under the Spanish bayonet was hiding a solid mass of aloe vera. We transplanted some of it to edge our front sidewalk, and it thrived quite beautifully. We had neighbors coming over all the time to ask for a leaf, and we would reply, "no, take a plant - please!"

Here is that same aloe plant after the January freeze we had in Southern California. It is recovering.
I have an aloe plant that is really big and has a yellow stripe on the leaves. What type of aloe plant is that?

Do a google search. Aloe with yellow stripe. It brings up a lot of different types of Aloe.
Sounds like an agave, not an aloe.
Aloes are succulent plants belonging to the lily family, indigenous to East and South Africa. They have thick, fibrous roots and numerous, fleshy narrow leaves with toothy edges that protrude out from all sides of the root.
I have grown aloe vera for many years now. It likes lots of sunshine and likes to get dry completely before being watered again. Also, it likes light, sandy soil, not heavily fertilized, rich soil.
Aloe vera plants do not want too much water and like lots of sun. Allow the soil to dry out to your touch before adding water. This is a guide about struggling aloe plant.
Aloe vera is a great plant for gifting due to its growth of new baby plants. Potting the pups in their own containers provides new plants for your home or to gift to friends and family.
