Plants Update

I’ve written on this blog before about the avocado plant I grew from a seed. But I don’t think I’ve blogged about my two other awesome plants, my ivy that I’ve had since I was maybe 12 years old and my amaryllis that I’ve had for about 7 years. The ivy has been through a lot, it’s survived all my student houses, and once when it was quarantined in the garden because of an infestation, it was mown by my landlord! It also fell of a windowsill in my first student house and broke out of its pot. I love it because it’s part variagated part plain leaved and has lovely gnarly vine roots:

The amaryllis may not have been mown or fallen off a windowsill,  but it’s still totally badass; that pot used to be circular. Let me just let that sink in!

And it’s about to flower soon, which is exciting!

And the real news this week is that I’ve finally re-potted my avocado which had been making a valiant effort to escape is pot. It was crazy root bound to a degree which definitely has to be seen to be believed:

It was starting to look ridiculously top-heavy in its tiny pot and looks a lot better now! Check out how tall it’s got :

Nearly as tall as me! (excuse my nighty, didn’t really think this picture through…)
