Last Day of Summer, 2013

Here's a fine spider plant specimen. Chlorophytum comosum, the species having been sometime in the far past brought to the northern hemisphere from (I think) South Africa, grows pretty danged well for we absentminded home horticulturalists. 
That's probably not news to anyone reading, but this one has been hanging in a corner for at least ten years now without any real attention. It's done well for itself and us, bringing joy and a touch of green to the family in the deepest of Januarys. I decided today was the day for some a little consideration; the final day of summer is a good time to divide and propagate a bit of charitable flora.
At any rate, I wish you the best of equinoxes on the morrow; be well and warm until the next.
