I just looked it up (in an old book) and they seem smaller and -not like this! It was a "thank you" present for looking after a friend's lurcher puppy for 2 weeks. It was about 18 inches tall, two years ago. I've repotted it twice (mainly because it fell over.) Last year I fed it and you can see what happened! I don't sit on the chair - it's too dangerous now.I bought it a new (lower) table... It's got about 12 inches to grow before it hits the ceiling. I think it's healthy - should I stop feeding it? How big do they grow???

As tall as the plant? (standing on end!) I havn't seen her for a year or so. She was hungry while I had her - she ate my bathroom floor...and my slipper...and a telephone...
