Aloe Question

Hi,

I've got a small aloe plant that's giving me a little trouble. As the
leaves get to about 7 or 8 inches long, they develop a brown spot about a
1/4" (5mm) in diameter near the base of the leaf. As the leaf grows out,
the spot seems to expand toward the center of the plant. Eventually the
leaf itself seems to rot through, and come loose from the plant. I've lost
two 10", otherwise healthy-looking leaves this way. I'm wondering what the
problem is and how to stop it.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve
