Spikey/Prickley Spider Plant?comments (1) March 22nd, 2013 in gallery
The Library that I work in has this huge, unwieldy plant sitting on top of a magazine display rack. While doing renovations, we moved the rack and plant, which had I guess drooped over the edge of its pot and was using the shelf to support itself, we tried to move it. Anyway, to make a long story short, it snapped, and I noticed that it had little babies. So I salvaged about 14 of them, and I've been growing them in dixie cups.
The point is, we don't know what kind of plant this is. It has little pokey spikes along each leaf, and it grows kind of like a palm? But it doesn't stand upright, henc ethe dropping ove rthe edge of its container. The person who originally planted it, set up a kind of old potato sack under the earth in the pot, to give it something to anchor to. Any insight is appreciated! I'm going to give them out to friends/enemies as gifts, and I'd like to know what I'm giving!
