I should have trimmed and propagated my aloe plant.

Now it looks like the plant version of the monster in The Thing (1982).
There are leave popping out of weird places.

No individual caption for the photos.
It's basically pictures of same aloe plant taken from different angles and close ups.

And yes, I had to put those wooden sticks because it would just fall over if they weren't here.

@iantila it thinks it's at least five plants :potted_plant:

@pfx I'm naming it Janus while it's untrimmed then.

@iantila Spooky and beautiful at the same time.

And it looks like you can propagate many plants from there?

@mms Yeah at least there is a good potential to get many of them. Hopefully I won't mess this up.
Never done propagation before so that will be a first.

Also, I don't like to be that guy but "spook(y)" is a word with racist origins :/

I learnt it recently too:

@iantila Oh, propagation is scary at the beginning, but it becomes so satisfying, I think, once you're able to spread baby plants and love with the rest of the human kind. :)

My partner is the expert, I can ask if they have any good link to share regarding aloe specifically if you would like me to.

Also, you're always the best guy.
Thanks for sharing.
Had no idea.
One more thing (un)learned. :ragelove:

@iantila Damn! Overnight! 😮

@iantila augh this reminds me i need to go out and trim our cactus and hope at least the roots are salvageable. poor thing took a beating from the abnormal snow we got this year.

@glitter I totally remember this episode since a dog enjoying the snow was involved.

Hope your cactus will make it.
