I am searching for a mother-in-laws-tounge plant cutting. I've been searching for years and hopefully I'll find one here. Thanks.

Jewel, just so you know...
If you start a new plant from cuttings the plant will be solid green and not have the "whitish" strip around the edges. If you want the "edging" you need to divide to start a new plant.

LOL The reason the Sansavarian has the common name "mother-in-law tongue", is it's severly poisonious, and the joke is if you hated your M-I-L, you just slip a small (1"square piece) of the plant into her food, and it'll paralize her throat causing her not to be able to breathe, and kill her.
My M-I-L was visiting and asked what it was, and then wondered why it was called that. So I researched it online, and told her. B4 every meal she inspects the plant and makes sure I see her. WE have a great laugh over it!

I'm glad to learn that fact because with small kids it's probably best that I don't have one.

Jewel, I've got kidlets, and a 6" pot of the plant... I just have it way up on a shelf, where I can barely reach it. A couple of the spikes are brushing the ceiling, not sure what I'm going to do with it in a bit, b/c I don't feel comfortable bringing it much lower...

You can have my MIL's tongue. Unfortunately you'd have to take the rest of her too, as it is still attached to her!

Hear! Hear! Daisy! Mine was peaches and cream until she found out her son and I were serious! She gave us matching vacumn cleaners for Christmas the year we got engaged - and no they weren't his and hers!
