I love growing plants, there is a pot in SSMO office with a Spathiphyllum that has been growing for about 10 years. It’s not tall but looks lovely. It was my son’s homework project to grow a plant in a bottle when he was in first grade in elementary school about 10 years ago. It’s precious for me as a pet plant now.
