I rescued this plant from the condo last weekend. I really had no use for another mother-in-law’s tongue, I have two already. But I’m a sucker for free plants or abandoned plants. There were three of these containers one of which had this plant in it. I’m not loving the containers either. But once again they were free and I wanted some more rectangular planters. I was thinking that I might paint them or something to make them a bit more appealing, but in the meantime, this one has been plopped down on the brick fence that hides the pool equipment. And in all likely hood that’s where it will stay.
