My son has a homework question for which I need your help please. Here is the question.
Mum has a spider plant which developed runners. The baby plants on these runners are genetically identical. Mum potted up 2 of these baby plants and gave 1 to gran and 1 to auntie. After 4 weeks gran's plant was twice as big as auntie's. Explain what has happened to the plants.

Differences in light, temperature, mineral content in the water, feedings , and so on. Spider plants are nearly impossible to kill, so maybe Gran pampered hers and Auntie neglected hers--and while it didn't die, it also didn't grow.
