But, when you google spider plants, this is not what you get. The flower ball is about six inches around.
I have several plants that belonged to my mom and grandmothers that I cannot identify, as they bloom I will post photos and maybe some of you can help me figure out what they are.
This is one of my regrets......not writing down the wisdom of my elders. My mom and grandmothers knew so much about, plants, about traditional medicine. My dad and his dad knew so much about farming. All their knowledge, gone forever. My older sister knows a great deal and I pick her brain a lot......one of my big fears.....we move so far into the future, that we don't remember important information from the past. I learned a lot, but I was young when my Mamie passed and she didn't share a great deal with her daughter -in-law (my mom)......my mom shared all she could remember, and my dad shared alot before he passed......but it is heartbreaking, all that has been lost.
I hope I do a better job, but you know I see my nieces and nephews eyes glaze over, when I talk to them about some of the old stuff......oh well, so it goes. Maybe they will be like me, they will remember bits and pieces some day, and then they will grasp its value and cling to what is remembered.
Now, about this flower, let me know any info you may have!
