That time came over the weekend. I went to shake off the excess soil and then pot them up, that's when I screamed, just a little bit. What the hell is that!?
I know this aloe, I've grown it for years. This is what the roots look like...
So what exactly is that!? Thank god it wasn't moving.
Then I noticed that small little leaf on the right. Interesting. Inspired by the purple oxalis I saw in Austin during the Garden Bloggers Fling I had planted a couple, they never amounted to much and I kind of forgot about them. Could that be what the hideous, segmented, worm-root belonged to? Did it hitch a ride with the aloe?

You, yes you...
Huh, what do you know. Looks related.
So now I'm wondering if I plant these little segments in the spring, will they take off and sprout purple oxalis leaves? Anybody?
