The Aechmea fasciata has been with me most of the summer, the Zantedeschia is a more recent acquisition.
I was going to separate the three Aechmea fasciata pups but instead decided to just remove the mother plant and let the three young ones keep growing together in an 8″ pot. It’s as much out of trying to keep it smaller as anything else – one pot takes up less room than 3, and the pups are all still fairly narrow while the mother plant was wide. So far it’s been completely trouble free.
The Zantedeschia has decided it likes being inside and has almost tripled in size since it came in. It’s also sending a lot of new roots out into its “pond” (a small bowl barely larger than the pot the plant’s in). Some of the height may be due to stretching due to low light. Not much I can do about that though until summer. Unfortunately plants that sit in reservoirs of water end up in hard to reach corners (generally lower light as well) because they don’t need as much attention as thirsty plants that need water daily. I think a greenhouse would solve a lot of my problems.
