My aloe vera plant has some other kind of plant growing beside it. Normal or not?

My aloe vera plant has some other kind of plant growing beside it. Normal or not?
It’s in a large pot, and the thing growing beside it has heart shaped leaves. What is this? Should I get rid of it? I’m clueless about plants and the aloe plant was only given to me, so I don’t know its history.

Thanks guys

Sounds like a weed, sometimes the Aloe does make babies beside it.

Help with growing an aloe plant from the seed; Can I use a heat lamp?

Help with growing an aloe plant from the seed; Can I use a heat lamp?
I got one of those aloe kits where you grow the plant from the seed in a little rock planter with a sprouting dome. The instructions say to keep the planter in bright light. Well it’s gonna be really cloudy and rainy here for the next week or two, and I was wondering if a heat lamp would be okay to use or would it be too harsh on a growing aloe seed?

Answer by normy in garden city
You don’t need to concern yourself with light until the seed sprouts and by then you should be okay. They don’t need that much light every single day. I keep mine in the window with a northern exposure so it never sees bright light and it’s doing fine.

I was so excited, because my aloe plant was growing a stock that I was hopeful might bloom. Will it regrow?

I was so excited, because my aloe plant was growing a stock that I was hopeful might bloom. My dog wagged his tail across the plant and broke the stock in half. Will it regrow at the point of breakage?

Need instructions to growing a new aloe plant from an old one. Please help?
I have an aloe plant that is quite healthy and would like to use it to grow another one. I heard you just pull off a leaf from the plant and plant it in a cup of soil and it will grow roots. Is this true? If not, please tell me how to do it

Best Suggestion

Answer by cats4ever2k1
I think your right, you have to pull off the whole leaf though. Its probably just easier to buy a new one thou.

Now that I have more room I’ll explain…I just re-potted my aloe and now I have two new baby aloe’s coming up. I want to make more plants if possible without killing my big aloe. Can I gently dig up these little aloes and try to repot them?

Best Suggestion

Answer by xgurl3eb
yes, but i would wait till they’ve matured enough to not be as fragile on their own. Once they get a little bigger (i’m guessing they’re REALLY tiny right now) then you can gently dig them up and transfer them to another pot

I have an aloe plant in a pot and my husband noticed today a mold growing in it?

I have an aloe plant in a pot and my husband noticed today a mold growing in it?
The mold is a lime green/yellowish colour. What may have caused this and what can I do to stop it. Do I need to changed all of the soil? Also is there a link to a website that give instructions on how to better care for my aloe plant?

Best Suggestion

Answer by Freedom
Mold is caused by too much moisture and not enough air circulation. Scrape off the mold and sprinkle some cinnamon on the top soil. It will help to stop it from coming back.
