When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Chlorophytum comosum 'Bonnie'

I should have taken another photo of all the roots wrapped round in a circle at the bottom of the pot😃 Doesn’t seem to be doing it any harm though as it’s really healthy 💚 @novicegardenlover @anges @mich

29 March 2018 • The spider plant has been a #houseplant for over 200 years 😃I’m not sure if you can tell in this photo but the plant on the left is much paler than the one on the right. Same age, same compost, same watering, same well-lit room. Only difference is the one on the left has been on a West facing windowsill & the one on the right a North facing one. 🤔
