At some point in my childhood, my parents' Chlorophytum comosum (spider
plant) lost its variegation and started throwing endless flower spikes and
setting loads of seed in addition to its usual vegetative babies.

They look a lot different depending on how much light and water they get,
tricking me into thinking they're anything from low-light Amaryllids to
desert Asparagoids.

and we're under a tornado watch today and a freeze warning tonight
