Coronavirus Diary 55 – great oaks from little acorns grow

Do you remember a few months ago in my post Coronavirus Diary 28 – Dancing in the rain I purchased a baby Spider Plant?

Spider plant

It has been growing over the months and it must be doing well as last week I noticed that a runner and sprouted so I must have been doing something right.

Obviously the plant needs a larger pot too but one of the things I’ve always liked about Spider plants is that it sends off these runners which develop buds which intern become baby spider plants.

Before you know it you can have several small plants connected to the mother plant which then become viable plants in their own right. Of course if this keeps happening you can easily be overtaken by spider plants in which case no-one should get too excited what they might receive for Christmas in 2022!
