You might remember well over a year ago I got a very tiny Spider Plant Coronavirus Diary 55 – great oaks from little acorns grow. By September last year, it had been repotted and grown somewhat Coronavirus Diary 70 – The front cottage garden in Autumn.
Almost another year down and whilst nothing has changed for me in being totally Excluded from government support whilst being barred from working in my profession, the little Spider Plant is not so little. In fact it’s turned into a monster with numerous shoots having sprouted out from the main plant to produce baby plants which in turn are now much larger than the original plant was when I got it and they too have produced children.
It’s all getting a bit out of control and I could tell the plant needed a bigger pot though I hadn’t quite expected its roots to be so potbound. Obviously it loves the location it has been growing in for over a year.
So I found the largest ceramic pot that I have which will give it room for another year. I’m not sure how much bigger a put I can find for it, especially suspending it from the roof of my somewhat condemned front porch, before it all falls down.
Getting it bang into its hanger was a bit of a nightmare too with all the leaves and runners everywhere but now its up, it does a good job of making the house seems bit more cottagey and stopping people looking to so easily too.
