We went to Home Depot, bought some dirt and a couple big pots and tackled the beast. My husband, somehow managed to extract the thing (on it's side) from the pot and we began hacking at the dirt surrounding the root ball. Much to my delight, it was several still large plants that made up the ginormous one. We were able to fairly easily divide it into 2 really BIG plants, one fairly big plant, and two nice size plants.
Now I still have 2 big plants to find homes for, but at least Mr. Universe doesn't have to come over to move them in. As a matter of fact, we already rolled one in, and it's sitting in the living room, and I'm wondering what to do with it.... anyone in need of a roommate? As that's really what the big ones are the size of.
We're all stocked up here....
living in our 111 year old house, married for 32 years, have 3 grown kids and two little doglegs. Creativity abounds here with everyone - not often in the same manner twice, but who wants a copy anyway???
