馃カ馃毃 This is a #TeamCan announcement 馃毃馃カ You all know I am an avid spider plant lover and well, it seems to be paying off 馃ス From my research, spider plants can produce babies after about 1 year of maturity, and flowers after 3 - so imagine my surprise when this babe I potted last July is pushing out FLOWERS?! 馃尭 Here鈥檚 what I鈥檝e noticed about having spiders in cans rather than in pots: 馃尡馃カ The size and shape of the tin cans are perfect for ready to pot baby spiders. The cans are 2 - 3 inches across, but about 4-8 inches down. A snug pot around the roots gives the tightness they need for producing babies, but there鈥檚 depth for the plant to grow down and strengthen itself 馃尡馃カ The can itself is definitely doing something for these guys - the metal leeching nutrients in to the soil is doing good. No other spider plant I鈥檝e ever had (and I鈥檝e had a lot over the years) has EVER done as well as these guys have. The rate of growth is really quite remarkable. I am an avid terracotta pot person, and the only reason #TeamCan even started was because I didn鈥檛 have pots small enough for the spider babies I was given and now look!! 馃尡馃カ To make sure everything鈥檚 okay, I just spin the pots once every few weeks to check for any rust or problems - and I鈥檝e not had a bother at all since potting them all last July/August time. Especially the cans designed to hold liquids - old tins of tomatoes cans, the Diet Coke can etc all seem to be holding up really really well These two photos were taken just today, one this morning and one this afternoon, I can鈥檛 quite believe it really 馃ス Wash out those old tins and hammer some holes in the bottom for any spider plants you ever have. Honestly don鈥檛 know how to get more of y鈥檃ll on this train, it鈥檚 changed my spider plant game forever - what other plants do we have in Team Can these days?! Show me your best ones!! 馃カ馃カ馃カ #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PlantCorner #Nallon #PlantPhotoClub #TeamCan #SpiderPlants #SpiderPlantFlowers #PLANTMAFIA #PlantTherapy #HappyPlace #PlantShelfie #BathroomPlants #potsthatarenotpots
