About a year and a half ago I bought a rather small plant at a nursery -- because I "felt sorry for it". It was in a 4" pot and its roots were pushing out the sides of the pot. I asked the salesperson how fast it grew and like so many others before him, I was assured it was slow growing. I can't remember what he called it though... So I took it home and transplanted it into an 8" pot -- it is now about 3 times it original size and is so strong it is again disfiguring the plastic pot (if this was in a ceramic pot, it would break -- the roots, or whatever is trying to push its way out are almost as hard as a rock). Its 'leaves' resemble a snake plant -- but an internet search never mentions this predominant habit of pushing out the sides of its pot, so I don't know if that is what it is. I would like to know what to expect from this beast? thx!
