Hey Fin... Your Spider plants were on holiday...where did they go? :) j/k.

They look great. I like the shelf, too.

Where on earth did you find a shelf w/pole that reaches the ceiling?
Is it meant for a bathroom? How much weight does it hold?
How tall is the ceiling?

Very nice setup. I'd like to find a shelf like yours for my Spiders. Toni

My balkony ceiling is about 260 cm....8 feet... I think. This is not meant for a bathroom. This is a much stronger. I bought it the furniture store. I do not know how much it takes the weight. Each level takes many kilograms. They are made of plastic.

They do look wonderful, seem particularly happy & healthy. Great looking arrangement, I think a number of us would like a pole like that for our plants (maybe even the balcony too).

Morning All,

Fin, the reason I asked if your pole was for the bathroom... shelves similiar to yours are sold here, but very light weight.
They sure couldn't hold a Spider plant, let alone five, or any plant in a container larger than 3"..kept dry.

The poles extend, but normally reach 6'.

Very nice set-up. Toni

hello!
My secret is that. I do not take care of them almost at all. I mist them a few times a week. I water when they are almost dry. Bring them into the tub and put the plug closed. I'll give them a good shower. I will let them be in the tub for about 20 minutes. Next, I will give the water to drain out of the bottom. After one hour, I check that the saucer is dry. That's it. When they are indoor in my bedroom, they get morning sun a couple of hours. No direct sunlight. In the winter I do not fertilize them at all. In the summertime only one or two times and then very modestly. The funniest thing about those are that this green spider plant is the largest, but it is only 7 months old. I've raised it myself from pup. Another is 1 and 2 years old.
I hope you understood my writings. Lines, the arrangement is not exactly my best skills in the English language LOL : D

Tuija,

You're grammar is fine.

I've read and heard variegated plants grow slower than green. Don't know if it's fact or fiction, but I find it to be true. Toni

From my experience I have found that the green ones do grow faster.I have grown green spider plants from seed and they are way bigger than my variegated ones yet they are only a few months old.

It is true that many variegated plants are slower growing, but dont think that variegated spider plants wont grow drastically QUICKLY!

Fin, I like how your curtain pattern matches the spider plants and flowers.

I like the look of spider plant flowers. Mines are flowering outdoors right now. Does anyone know that spider plant flowers attract bee occasionally
