I wouldn't of believe dit if I hadn't caught her doing it. Has this happened before? Hasn't messed with anything else. Could the cloves have been dying/dead so it ripped them off the rock?

Got them 3 days ago they were a freebie with the order, they didn't look great when they came in but I was starting to see some of the flowery heads start to peak out on the really brown parts.

Im not even mad I was cracking up. I turned in the living room light to the shrimp flash jumping off the cloves bringing a tangle with it, it looked so guilty haha.
