As I said in a previous post, I'm a bad house plant carer and this is a good example. My spider plant sat on top of the kitchen cupboards and was very elongated. Yesterday, I pulled it down as it was starting to look embarrassing. Went a bit drastic with the scissors ✂️ and gave it a hair cut and repotted in fresh soil and a spanking new pot. I've now moved it to a brighter place to help it recover and fill out a bit 🙄 #chlorophytum #spiderplant #houseplant

PS - no idea if the above is right so please do not take as advice, it was an impulse thing I did 😂

Well that's what I initially thought @linfoster - it might look a bit odd for a while 😳

I don't believe those leaves will grow, but you should get new ones
