Hi there! This post has nothing to do with stitching, it's ok, I can live with it-LOL! Although I don't garden much, I am a bit of a fiend for house plants. They seem to like it here as much as we do:) Yesterday was my first *growing season* visit to DMIL for babies from her 30+ year old spider plants. Yes, they're monstrous and I always wonder when they will pull down the ceiling. Every spring she calls and says *the babies are ready, if you don't come soon, they'll be gone*, which means the babies are driving her nuts and her fingers are itchin' to get out the nippers. We simply can't have that, so off I go for a wonderful visit and some nice tea, knowing that in a few months there will be lush newly planted spider plants everywhere, to enjoy here and also gift-away.
How to grow *nice* spiders: snip off lots of baby shoots, fill jar, glass or vase with water, plunk them babies in the water, set in the spring sun, keep roots in water and re-fill jar with water when needed, in about 2 weeks, more or less they'll be nicely rooted and be ready for planting into a nice primitive pot.
Our babies look like this today, these shoots will make a very fine bigger scale plant, whooopsie me, how utterly unintentional, fish/scale LOL ~ fish with strawberry optional :)
Eventually they'll be a glorious and lush spider plant, like this!
And having *nice* spider babies of their own, like this!
Kind thanks for stopping by!
