Welcome!
I think you are an Aloe and require staking ,repotting and a little t.l.c

Good luck and welcome to the group.

Welcome!

If you don't normally live in a sink, where do you live? Perhaps you are leaning because you are not getting enough light.

He usually lives in a window and gets a lot of light! I'm turning him around so he's starting to lean back now Smiling

He looks beautifully healthy. He is top heavy it looks like, could benefit from support. I love aloes, I keep them around for burns and such. They're considered a medical plant, u can look up their uses. it's growing babies to each side of him. You could put in a slightly larger pot so he's got room to grow roots and offshoots.

He went in a new pot yesterday! I thoight about giving the babies pots of their own but I wasn't sure how so I just left them. Thanks for the reply, I thought it might be an aloe but never saw one with this sort of stacking structure before!

It looks like a species of Aloe other than Aloe vera.

I recently learned that there was so many different kinds of aloe myself. I'd leave the babies until they got larger or until it gets warmer. They aren't hurting anything being there. As long as they got a descent root system of there own they'll do fine when repotted. Aloes are pretty tough plants in my experience. They are my favorite.
