I'm working on site today for the first time in weeks and have discovered that nature is reclaiming our offices.
It's been about two weeks, and I'm back in the office again, so here's a plant update!
Not much change overall but you can see the big one has progressed a bit along the office door, and seems to be going for the bin by the desk.
Quick snap of another one too, that's really keen to get up the wall by the conference room, probably for the view out the window.
@mike Holy crap!
@mike I can't believe that my pothos, after about five years still hasn't grown that much.
@mike that also means an invisible hand kept watering it for as long. (It does not look like it’s connected to an automatic watering system)
@mike I’ve seen this film. Are there any solar flares forecast?
@mike should we be more impressed that someone has actually helped it grow that way by keeping up the water? :)
@bcshort our CEO lives just a couple hundred metres away and there's been someone coming in pretty regularly just to clear mail from under the door, so it's not crazy that it's been getting water. I suspect we're all watching to see how big it'll get before we come back in for good.
@mike "Humans are the virus."
@mike “feed me, Seymour!”
They staryedany years ago with our house. The plants has grown through the walls and now just kinda hanging there on the wall as decore
@mike hashtag nature is healing
@mike I'm so proud of her
@mike „Life, uh, finds a way“
@mike Go, plant, go!
@mike she's doing an outstanding job give her a raise
@mike Rick Moranis steps into the office, takes one look at that, and goes "OH HELL NO" and books it for the nearest exit...
My guess for what I was going to do after the pandemic was over was to clean off the buildings...
@mike what a good job. let this beautiful friend flourish
grow, little pothos
reclaim this grey office space
for light and glory
@mike the plant
It destroyed its pot
The plant is out
@mike VERY good.
@mike watch out, it could end up like this ^^
@mike Who waters it? You?
@yrabbit nah I'm only in here rarely. It's probably one of our managers who lives nearby who comes in to collect the mail every day or so.
@mike If that thing ever gets spider mites, u r fukt
@mike hahaha I was just thinking about this plant the other day, and wondering how it was doing. wow. I wish I had a plant in my house that grew like that! If you weren't on the other side of the world, I'd ask for a cutting if you decided to, uh, cut off the escape. 😂
@bouncinglime I'm only likely to be in here once a month or so, unless something changes radically, but I'll keep posting updates when I can!
@mike does that happen to be kudzu?
@mike watch out
@mike omg I love it, please let it take over the building
@mike This is great. :D
@mike FREE HER
reminds me of the Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence [Reinterpreted By Mike Shinoda] (Official Video)
We had one growing across our desks 😁
@mike let it grow please.
@mike oh wow, that is impressive!
@mike It'll be a shame when they get "controlled."
@mike I am in awe of the impudence of these plants. First they got the company to sack the person responsible for pruning them, then they brazenly overstepped their job without consequence, and now they have their sights on the well-lit corner office. I’m glad you’re keeping the receipts, Mike, but don’t turn your back on them.
@mike nature is healing
@mike can you place strategic checkpoints ("checkpots"?) for it to recuperate and spread even faster?
@mike I am so invested in this plants bid for office domination.
