Aloe plant blooming?

Asked June 23, 2020, 5:58 PM EDT

I noticed yesterday that my aloe plant is growing something! My research found The flower of the aloe vera plant typically blooms once in the summer, but only on mature plants in sunny locations. An aloe vera plant's flowers are yellow, blooming on racemes on stalks that grow as high as 3 feet tall. First of all I never new aloe bloomed! My pics were taken yesterday & today. It’s growing rapidly. Its growing alongside the plant like a mushroom. Please help!

This is a type of mushroom and not a flower. It most likely is Leucocoprinus birnbaumii. The common names are yellow houseplant mushroom, yellow parasol, or flower pot parasol. This mushroom is poisonous if eaten. It will not harm your plant.

Remove it and throw it in the trash.
