Big Boy


By Regina

Big Boy

One of my many houseplants. He is about 30 years old (was my moms). He spends the winters indoors. In early spring he moves to the porch, then to the garage for a week, and then outdoors.

Inherited a rubber plant from my mom in 04, I remember driving that plant from Pittsburgh to Houston when we moved in Dec of '73. I had just gotten my liscense that summer and we had 3 cars. My dad drove his with the dog and my mom drove hers with my little sister and I drove a old tiny little Ford Pinto with that plant. A blizzard in Arkansas had us stuck in Little Rock for 3 days! It was a real experience! Something I wouldn't want to do again, I swear that plant was tickling my ear the whole way! That plant is lucky I'll still water it! : )

What a great story Wohlibuli. Yes, "big boy" as I call him, has a long history. Is your rubber plant still thriving? I can just see you driving that Ford Pinto in a blizzard with plant branch tickling your ear. Lucky you are.

You will see more pics of "big boy". I just moved him to the outside porch where he will spend 2 weeks. Then out to the garage, and finally outdoors.
The adventures of "big boy" will continue....

I decided my little sis should have the plant, once she got rid of the husband. So I kept it for her until last year and now it resides back in PA, in Philly this time. I kept it alive, but only just. After that experience we never did get on well, I'd water but only when I had to and it would grow but only as little as it could! House plants aren't my forte.

Wonderful philodendron. I'll have to give mine a little summer outing. Probably do it well.
