My next door neighbour hates cats. You see, he is a very keen gardener and often finds that the local cats have been going to the toilet all over his plants! But this morning he lost it big time, because when he went out into the garden as he does every morning and found a cat fast asleep inside his display pot plant! While he was clearly annoyed I have to admit it made me laugh, much like this lot do…

The perfect cat plant pot is one that is not too big, and not too small. Like the Goldilocks effect. Getting one the right size will mean you can grow a mighty strong cat that has plenty of room to stretch and grow.

If you happen to have some wall mounted baskets lying around a nice cat plant will not only fill it with ease but also hang on the edges of it making a great display. Just remember to keep the local kids away from it as it can scratch them.

Always make sure that the roots of your cat plant are fully covered. This is one of the most important areas for the future growth of the cat plant to make sure there is nothing blocking it from spreading outwards and upwards.

If you see your cat plant starting to grow long ways instead of straight up, don’t panic. You can always replant them in a much longer pot like this one.

It can happen at any time, day or night you will find that your cat plant will need to rest. All that growing takes its toll on these cat plants which means they need to rest and rest often.

Don’t be afraid of planting your cat plant in the middle of other plants. Often the sheer laziness and weight of your cat plant will flatten the surrounding plants making them the centrepiece of your display.

Always try to make sure that the pot you are using, matches the size of cat you are planting. This is a classic example of a cat plants that have no room to grow. So give them a little breathing room!

While cat plants are not the easiest thing to hang it can be done. They make for a stunning display and often a nice talking point when you have visitors around. Just remember to water your cat plant with milk regularly.

When you cat plant is a young growing kitten bud, make sure you place them near a window to give them plenty of sunlight. You can even try talking to them as this will often encourage growth.
Never try to plant too many cat plants in one pot. Give them lots of room to grow and stretch because cat plants love to have space to do both. But I do like this planters mix of colour to give the plant a touch of Autumn.
