OK, so I actually brought it upon myself. They didn't just suddenly invade.
First we have the 4 foot tall, from base of the 'foot' to the top of the leaves, Elephant's Foot plant:
It gets bigger and bigger every year. I think I'm on my third or fourth pot. But I've been able to slow down the growth a bit by putting it on the shady front porch, rather than in the full sun in the backyard. Yeah, I learned that lesson real quick the first summer I put it out.
The other giant is my pregnant onion:
This poor thing was filling the 12-inch pot it was in from rim to rim. I finally gave in to re-potting it when a swarm of ants came out of it the last time I watered it. EW!
So, John and I went to Earl May to pick out a new pot. However, we couldn't find any 14-inch pots, so it ended up in a 16-inch - diameter and height. The main center of the plant itself is about 13 inches tall. Yea, now it will have to grow even bigger!
