Small office plant bought ten years ago grows into 300ft monster hanging over every deskMay 10, 2019
A SMALL office plant bought ten years ago has grown into a 300ft monster.
The ivy now fills the workplace and hangs from the ceiling over every desk.
Packaging firm boss Des Brennan, 54, bought the potted cutting in 2009 to brighten up the office.
He said: “It just flourished. I think it likes the fluorescent lights, and the heat. In the summer, when the leaves come out, it’s more like a canopy in here.”
The ivy grows six inches a month and trails twice round the 50ft by 25ft office of Protective Solutions in Stonehouse, Gloucs.
Des said: “We only water it every couple of days, about half a pint.
“It does cost a fortune in elastic bands, though, to pin it to the ceiling.”
He said “some of the girls talk to the plant”, adding: “When it grows too big, we’ll have to punch a hole in the roof and let it up on the mezzanine.”
