Hi, all. Most of what I grow is high direct sunlight, xeric, succulent, cacti, ... My 23 y.o. son came home yesterday (his girlfriend needed "more space" and asked [I'm not sure how nicely] that he vacate immediately). I can help him but he brought home a pot of dracaena marginata (3 plants leaning away from eachother) and a ZZ Plant thing with big bulbous tumor-roots showing. There's also a variegated spider plant in a plastic pot that looks way too small. If they were some kind of aloe or some species of echinopsis I'd know exactly what to do, but they aren't. So where do I put them? My goodness, I grow othonna and I don't know what to do with a spider! He's going through enough, I don't want to kill his plants. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.


May God bless the WHOLE world!

"Water when on the drier side and do not keep overwet."
Can do. Even the ZZ wants to dry out? I don't think it has in a while.
Lovely hummers, Ms. Boop. Your spiders are in larger pots for the size of the plants than my son's is. Guess I'll up-pot, but minimally.
Thanks, everyone.
