The Mysteries of House Plants
Take the magical & mystical appearance of a tomato plant in one of my snake plants...
I have no idea how a seed managed to find its way into the pot - I'm very strict about proper potting soil & not allowing people to just randomly drop things in them - not even cutesy decorations like beach glass or sea shells...
So, I've been watching this poor tomato sprout & develop the last few weeks & now I see that there are flower buds on it. Experiment??
Unfortunately, it's growing with a plant that really doesn't have the same requirements - actually, the opposite in fact. Tomatoes like lots of water & food & for the most part, I neglect the snake plants & they seem to enjoy it.
Well, we shall see who holds out the longest: me, the tomato plant or the snake plant.
