Dear Interwebs

I’m not really the most observant person in the world. However, having this escaping my attention is a pretty big achievement.

But today, while watering the plants, I noticed something odd on one of the aloes:

Some white fluffy things on the leaves.  Hm.  Then I looked further down:

Lots more!  And the soil! More fluffy white mold!

Infected!  And behind the potted plant?

EEEK!  SPORES!!!!

Dear Interwebs, what is this?  And what’s the best way to deal with this?  Should I kill it with fire, before going into one of those scenes you see in the movies when somebody has detected something yucky (i.e., scrub my skin in the shower until it bleeds)?

Or is there a less drastic solution?

I can just throw away that aloe, but I see that it’s spread to the plant next to it:

And that’s a huge one that I’m not that keen on throwing away.

Please advise.
