{#772} Pothos Overload

This is a golden pothos plant.  I have had the same one since before I was married.  It is now a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother plant.  I was going to take a picture of it, but Rachel took my camera card and has not returned it.

I had a little one with 4 stems in a hanging planter in my kitchen until Emily's wedding.  We used live plants (all ferns and pothos) in the decorating.  She patiently unwound the many loops of pothos from the planter.  You see, as it grew and hung down, I'd just loop it up over the top of the planter. 

It stretched all the way across the bench in my kitchen.  I decided to measure one of the longest stems which actually had been looped over the pot 3 times and as a result had rooted in a loop.  The info I read online said it can reach up to 8 feet long.  Since you can believe everything you read on the internet, it must be true.  Mine was 16 feet.
