Quick Tips On Plant Creepers

By Pedro Gonzalves

If you have ever kept a breed of plant like mint, you will have probably noticed plant creepers that have spread from the main body of the plant and have tried to grow from its pot or place in the garden. These plant creepers are a part of the plant’s natural reproductive phase, an ability that permits them to grow new, independent plants. This ability duplicates the originating plant to ensure survival without the need of a male and female specimen to pollinate one another.

However, plant creepers can create problems indoors and outdoors. Indoors, they will send vines anywhere they sense a possible location to clone itself and create offspring. If you have some plants near one another, and one has the ability to extend plant creepers, it will do so. This may cause overcrowding in the pots that are targeted by the creepers. If you have plant creepers, you need to make sure they are pruned frequently, or far enough from other specimens so that they cannot clone themselves quickly.

Something that will impress beginning plant owners is the speed in which plant creepers clone themselves. Some types can clone within a few days, effectively breeding in another pot, unknown to you until you see that your pot has a new occupant. If the new plant is left be, you will find that the plant may or may not retract the original plant creepers, which can become a nuisance if you desire to separate the plants.

Should you have offspring of plant creepers that you want to retain, you should transfer them to a new pot as soon as the plant has divided from the originating plant, or can be separated carefully. The specimen requires to have begun establishing its own root system before it is alright to move. In a few cases, only the center is required. Plant creepers that can also breed through the planting of leaves are particularly hard to remove once they have established themselves, as they have some ways of creating new plants.

The best way to stop a hard to remove plant infestation from your pots is to prune the plant creepers as they are growing. Pruning will not cause any harm to your plant. In many situations, the pruning will actually improve the health of your specimen, as it will instinctively try to regenerate what has been cut away.

Quite a few plants with plant creepers are non dangerous. However, several species, such as poison ivy, can quickly infest a yard. These types of plants should be destroyed, including the root systems you can find, as the plant will be able to regrow.
