Chlorophytum comosum in 3 tall glass containers.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

Psalm118:29
Chlorophytum comosum/spider plant/spider ivy/hen and chickens. I think hen and chickens is the name I like the best. As a child we had Silky hens running around the yard. My Mum saw some lovely purple chicks at the farmers’ show and tried to do it to ours. She wasn’t their friend for a long time but then my Mum once accidently dyed her own hair orange. That was long before colour was in! Then the same dear Mum having never made a wedding dress made mine and my sisters. I gave her a Vogue picture from a friend’s magazine. Fabulous Mum! I digress from the plant, hen and chickens.
If the flowers are not pollinated they grow into spiderettes! (nice word) I think I know some people spiderettes!🤣Notice a vigorously growing spiderette with a broad green and white striped peppermint candy adult leaf below it.
Look at the leaves from the Reverse Variegatum plant in the foreground. The outline and centre of the leaves are polaropposite of the variegated. These leaves have a soft yellow edge with a forest green center. This change of colour is effective in bringing variety. It can become very large. I bought mine quite big when I was getting impatient with the small gifted plant. Strangely I didn’t notice the difference immediately.🙂

My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.

2 Corinthians 12:9

  1. I remember the chicken story! 🤣. The rooster hid on the compost heap and we couldn’t find him for ages. Mom used potassium permanganate and they went brown instead. 😂
    Didn’t know all that about the hen and chickens. You are so creative! Beautiful.
