Plastic Trash Vortex: People who leave everything in their will to animals (or something equally stupid, such as this) should be declared mentally unfit to make decisions for themselves. Give the money to a person or organization that can actually use it. Christ, I'd rather the government got it then a cat or houseplant.
SpeelChuck: OMG, I GIS'd and damned if this isn't the exact same plant my mom nurtured for 42 years. She and Dad got a small plant as a housewarming gift when they moved into their first apartment in America, in the early 60's. Mom tended that plant till it grew to ceiling height, and even split it in two on about three occasions. When we moved, it moved with us. It spent summers on the patio, winters in a sunny corner in the living room.One day a few months after my Dad died, I went over to my mother and was shocked to see her living room bare of greenery of any kind. The big plant and all the smaller ones - gone. She hadn't even given them away to others. She just got them out. Never gave me a plausible explanation but it doesn't take a shrink to figure it out.She has never had a plant in her living room in all the years since. She does keep some plants in the sunroom, and has a beautiful garden, but the living room just has vast expanses of gleaming wooden floor where the plants used to be.TL;DR My mother had the same plant for the same number of years and it would have lived longer if she'd let it.
