A baby is born!

Four years ago, my sister gave me my 1st houseplant. And amazingly, it has survived. It's the spiderplant in the picture above.

When I went to her house, she had saucers full of baby plants. So she gave me one. I was clueless so she even supplied the pot and the dirt. :)

The plant hung on with me through feast and famine, and through a move. And just this week, for the first time in it's life....it has made a baby. I'm so proud. You can see it in the top right section of the plant.

This summer, I moved the plant from our laundry room into our kitchen. Every time I find a cup with water left in it, I give it to the plant before tossing the cup in the sink. I think it's made all the difference.

Now to transplant the baby without my husband finding it and killing it. :(

Awww.. a sweet baby! I just brought in 4 plants for the winter. I'm sure at least one or two won't make it!

I found you through MBC and I'm now a follower!

I am so clueless about plant life. I did not know they could spawn!!!

That's awesome! Houseplants are good for you too. They help clean the air. I'm a mad propigator of my houseplants (up over 100 now) I constantly make babies from my spider plants to give to friends. They make great housewarming and hostess gifts.

Hope your thumb stays green!
