Well, it’s about time . . .

As of the beginning of July, I counted a total of fourteen spider plants in my house (and several in a seed tray outside – but we’ll ignore those).

All were looking rather pot-bound. In fact the one on the left of the image above hadn’t been repotted for a few, several, many years, and contained five plants (four were babies that I’d rooted in the pot).

It was time to gather them all together and sort them out.

Starting with the largest, I removed as many of the fat, white roots as I could.

I’d sourced and bought eight large pot-holders for the larger plants. The smaller ones and newly-potted babies fitted in where they could.

Time to count them.

I started with fourteen.

I ended up with twenty. Not too bad.

There is a hook in my breakfast room ceiling (10 feet up) calling out for some hanging plants.

I’ll have to practice my macramé.

  1. Apart from your endeavours with the spider plants, I like the lovely vase of grasses (?) on the hearth. Or perhaps they are flower heads looking great although past best before date?

  2. A job well done! Your hanging basket reminds me that our three-year-old granddaughter arrived one day, first visit in two months or so, came in the door and went at the gallop to a similar hanging basket in our kitchen. She reached into the basket and took out a lollipop – it seems she had put it there on her previous visit; had never mentioned it to anybody but, clearly, had it in mind all that time! And – there were spider plants in that basket too.
