Our apartment is situated so we only get direct sunlight through a few windows, as we are located so far north of the equator. Also our place is about 5 feet from the neighboring fire-engine-red-painted house next door and it blocks most of our sunlight. My hunny likes plants but they do not like this apartment. They press themselves up against the glass trying to get as much as they can from what we get. It makes for an interesting study in phototropism.
This is my late grandfather's mint from his yard straining to get to the light.
However, the spider plants will grow anywhere… and everywhere. They are reaching out to grab us as we walk by. They are fighting amongst themselves for room. The spider plant babies are having babies. So if you happen to head over to our dining room hutch cabinet, watch your tootsies. They might trip you up.
Mr. M is taking advantage of this and growing a topiary ivy plant. He poked a few stakes in the dirt and is training ivy vines to grow around them and up in a tall column. Due to the lighting situation, all he has to do is turn the pot a quarter turn everyday and the vines grow toward the light and in a spiral around and around. They chase after the sun! I stenciled and painted the pot the ivy is living in.
Hey! Who Is This?!
- As a self-taught, mixed-media collage artist I am powerless to the draw of finding a way to mix this with that. My work centralizes around my love of paper. I currently dabble in making fine art paper collage jewelry and accessories from game pieces such as dominoes and checkers. I am a Tiny Work of Awesome!
