My mother bought me an indoor 'grow your own aloe' kit for my birthday last year. I'm not entirely sure the plant that's growing is aloe though, or if it is it's some kind of 'aloe of doom'. The 'leaves' are paper thin and stiff, about the width of a pencil, and have bright red barbs that are downright painful if/when they get caught in your skin. The plant is just under a year old, has not been re-potted yet (you'd be nuts to try and handle this thing with out welding gloves!), and has been otherwise tended to according to the kits included instructions. I've tried several search methods, and a friend has referred me to this website. I'd greatly appreciate an ID on this monster. Thanks in advance!
