Q.How Do I Get This Plant Under Control?
I bought this plant at about 6 inches, it is now about 43-44 inches and it keeps going. I am running out of bamboo sticks tall enough to hold it up. I don’t know what this plant is exactly, an aloe vera of sorts. How can I get it under control? Or if it keeps growing how do I proceed to take care of its height?

One of the species of climbing Aloe!!! Many of them are invasive, and some of them will cause skin irritation.
Dividing, pruning, rooting smaller versions of itself and giving away larger plants are all ways of controlling size of invasive plants.
