Green Thumb Sunday

I love my spider plant.
My sister gave me a tiny baby some years ago from a mother plant that makes the most trailers I have ever seen. Donna's plant is gigantic.
It has turned into one of the best house plants I have . Tough even through the trial of moving and adapting to brighter light.
It has persevered through lack of attention from time to time, extreme dryness when we have been away.. benign neglect.

Thank you Donna for sharing.

The plant looks awesome against the white, and the stand suits it to a T. Nice the plant has stayed in the family since Sherry gave it to me 6 years ago!!!

That spider plant is amazing!! It looks like it's found a 'good home' near the fireplace!!

My Green Thumb today is all hibiscus. Stop by, won't you? If you have time.

Wow! your spider is amazing! I have these all over my yard, left by the previous owner, and they drive me nuts with all their little shoots, but I never thought of putting them in a pot and letting the babies hang down- They look gorgeous that way! Time to start digging I guess!

Amazing! Not sure which I like the most the plant or the fireplace!

You have a lovely home.

Your new home is lovely. I wish my spider plants looked that good. You must really have a green thumb!

The plant is great but I love your fireplace too.

I haven't had a spider plant in 40 years! They don't do as well here as in some climates, even in the house. My d.-in-l. in Denver has several large ones and the plants love it up there. Your plant is just gorgeous!

A spider plant was the first plant I ever grew :) My mum had one and gave me one of the babies to look after when I was about 5 years old.

@Dee's comment - I can't imagine having them in my garden - they are definitely an indoor plant here in UK>

It is so much fun seeing plants from my youth back in the gardening scene.
I bought a new version of a 'Wandering Jew' this sumer. It has fuzzy leaves. Your new home is beautiful too!
