Do Plants Ever Stop Growing?

I'm really starting to wonder if plants ever stop growing. I have LOTS of plants. We have lived in this house for 2 1/2 years and since we moved here, the plants have been growing like weeds~! The house does have alot of light but it's getting ridiculous ... lol.

The plant below is on a plant ledge above our hallway closet. It started out just about 2 years ago a cute little thing and wasn't hanging over the ledge at all. And now ...

It's out of control~! lol

It has actually reached the floor on the one side. Those type of plants are easy to cut back (and start NEW ones ... lol) so that's not really a problem.

But some of the other plants ...

are outgrowing their spot and not as easy to cut back. That is just a few of the plants I have around. I've often thought of counting my plants (and maybe some day I will ...) but I haven't got around to it yet. I don't even water them all the same day because it takes too long ... lol.

Get rid of them? - NO, that's not an option. I get attached to my plants ... lol.

Move them to a different spot? - I've done that several times ... but there are only so many spots!

Buy a bigger house? - Hahahaha ... my husband would kill me just for thinking about it.

Stop buying new ones? - Ok, I've already agreed to that one!

What if they never stop growing? ...
Hmmm ... well, they say the more plants you have and the bigger the plants, the more oxygen they supply and there are many other benefits of having house plants. So I guess I'll just keep loving them.

And speaking of Love ...

Thank you so much for the freebie. I had to laugh over your plants though. Mine are not doing so well, I have some that are just limping along in the house I live in...and yet I still can't throw them out. If you ever need to get rid of them, how about a floral shop? Or any plant watering company, for business's? Or the local greenery? I know they would love plants like that. Just a thought. But I still couldn't get rid of mine...lol. Enjoy the air though it's great for you. :)

I'm so glad your hoyas are doing so well! I've never had any luck with them. How do you get yours to bloom so well? Is it just a matter of waiting?Do they have to be a certain size or age? Anyways, nice to see such lovely plants!
