An email from my daughter:
I have a spider plant in my office that I have had since college. Needless to
say, she (her name is Charlotte) is huge! I repotted her in a 14 inch "super
pot" about 4 years ago, hoping to never repot her again.
Well, Charlotte's leaves are turning yellow, and the roots are coming out the
bottom. I need to repot her again? Is there any way to stop a plant from
growing? I don't want her to grow any bigger, but don't want her to die if I
don't repot her.
If I repot her, the pot will be too big for my office. If I bring her home,
Sienna (her cat) will chew her up!
What should she do?
