However the really weird thing, is what is going on under the bottom leaves of the plant. There is a huge mass of something just exploding out the bottom, right under a leaf that got clipped off. There is also a thin strip of the same stuff on top of one leaf- which is visible in the top picture.
This Aloe was never planted properly, it got left in this spot, and just started growing into the ground. When I realized it had taken root, I added dirt, and left it where it was, but maybe that had something to do with this weird growth? Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?
