Several years ago my sister gave me an aloe vera start. A year later I
split him into two pots and then for a couple years he just got big.
Now he puts out keikis every year and is happier if I divide him. Last
spring we had a get together for a local sock swap and I managed to
pawn off several potted babies on my guests. I'm hoping to do the same
at this year's swap so I've split the first guy. Each of these 5 pots
has 2 or 3 in it! There's still another guy who needs to be split. I
think he's pretty happy.
Recently I picked up some flower and veg seed for the garden and spotted this packet of seed for kitty greens. Some of my house plants are left happily alone but there are a few that the cats really go after. This packet of seeds suggests that having a pot or two of kitty greens will deter them from attacking your other house plants and be safer and healthier for them as well. I'm starting one pot this week and a second pot next week so that one can be down at munching level while the other recovers. Since I have three cats I may have to start a second pair of these as well but for the moment I'll try it with just these.
