About two years ago I bought my mum and dad a small anthurium from M&S for their anniversary. Back then, it was in a small pot and had one or two leaves and flowers.... very cute!
However, over the two years it grew extremely fast and is now is the largest plant pot I can find for it... and is still growing!! It's that big, we've named him Jacob!!
He still flowers every year and new leaves and stems still appear but I fear it's time to do something about our new pet!! It's been suggested to me to split him but I'm a complete dunce around plants and i'm frieghtened of doing something that will damage Jacob! I do try to pull off any leaves and stems that are dying off to make a little more room but for everyone I pull off another 10 seem to grow in it's place lol!!! And, I think the size of the leaves are gradually getting bigger!!!
Please please, if there is anyone that could possibly help me and suggest what I could do with Jacob i'd be very grateful!! He is a wonderful pet plant and it would be a shame to just leave him as he is... Someone told me over the weekend that we could possibly split him into 10 separate plants (maybe I should beome a breeder ha ha!!) but I say i'm just a bit worried about damaging him!!
All suggestions welcome!!
Please note, the picture is not Jacob... just what he (or is supposed) to look like!!!
