It's squishy and purple! Ack! I'm beginning to think I should stop trying to grow African plants because I always kill them. Sans a couple Euphorbia.... Check out the picture. This happened to my favourite Aloe last year, after I neglected it during the winter. It smelled awful. Definitely rot for that one I thought. It's just one of those cases where I'm not sure if it's rot/over-watering or coldness. I've barely watered the thing since I've had it in the past few months...my rule for this one and my Lithops is "water it when it looks wrinkled"...I admit the window sill it calls home is a little less than room temperature, but I think this is probably rot. I can't visibly see any bugs on it... Opinions? How do I save the ones around it?
