Plaited Plant

We went to a store in Ireland recently and I saw this amazing house-plant. I couldn’t see a name on it but asked my son to take a photo of it with his phone. I should have asked him to step back a bit and get more of the plant in the photo. I wonder how long it took to get the plant to this height? We were buying bits and pieces to update a shelter for his goats. We’ve been helping him with a few odd jobs while we’ve been staying with him.

Those are awesome. I wonder how little they are when they braid them like that.

It must take a few years before they are at saleable height.

@JudyEv They must grow those stalks somewhere, sorta like bamboo shoots.

I had a plant with a braided stem...it was called, of all things, a money tree.

@JudyEv No but it grew really well until I forgot to water it. I kill most of my plants. I either overwater or underwater....no plant is safe.

@Morleyhunt That sounds exactly like me. I'm sure my Mum was a bit disappointed that I wasn't a good gardener.

I have seen plants done like this. Usually "ficus benjamina" or weeping fig. It is a neat treatment.

I guess it's several plants woven together. I couldn't find a name on it.
