I have an Aloe that I'd love an ID on. It came with a tag, but the tag has been damaged. It's also acting different from my other aloes. Most of them just put up a single flower stalk and have orange or yellow blooms. This one is putting out what look like little plants at the tips. Do many aloes do this? This is the first one I've had that did this.

A kalanchoe tubiflora has "infested your plant", its a fast cloning succulent, that you could un root, and re root in another pot.
Invasive means easy after all.

Your aloe is cohabitating with a Kalanchoe and that's where the plantlets are coming from.

That was what I was thinking about when I saw the plantlets! I've never grown it, but it must have come in with the plant from the grower.

So none of you know this hybrid? I've searched and can't find it with the missing letter.

sinkatana x rauhii would be my guess.

Garden/nursery hybrid?
It is what it is!

Thanks, Thijs. It came from Bob Smoley's.

I can't believe my old eyes missed that, even when looking at the photo! I have purposely never grown that plant because I saw how invasive it was when I visited a friend who lived in Santa Barbara, CA. She had it coming up everywhere. I've since gotten it out of there!
