    Spider Plant Node

    So... my office is looking a little boring. And having fond memories of Spider Plants as a kid I was wondering if anyone had a spare Spider Plant baby they wanted to give me to grow?

    Pictures of the adopted plant will of course be posted to HUKD as it develops into an adult plant having its own babies of which I would be happy to put up for adoption.

    go for a cactus, they're much nicer and if you place it on your window ledge you will have even more fun when someone forgets it is there and sits on it and gets a **** in their bottom:p

    It's a grand plant and it's got plenty of baby danglers!
    It is very old though, it thrives on neglect.

    Seriously, if you want a baby spider plant, PM me.

    I spent hours making those macrame holders from string and beads!!!

    PM on its way!

    Lol @ the potential HUKD spider plant ring X)

    I have a cluster of them, including one from Brazil that someone brought back for me. I grow the babies in a saucer of water rather than in soil with their umbilical cord still attached.
