A GIANT 14-foot plant is rapidly taking over the hallway of an 83-year-old – 25 years after she planted it in a pot at just eight inches long.

Pearl King, of Papermill Lane, Ipswich, said: "I do not believe you should move a plant if it is doing well, so I have left it where it is."

"The hall is 12 feet long and it has completely swamped it. It is about 14 feet long and it is standing in a large pot on a table in the hall."

The plant has sprouted out all over the hall and has had to be tied to the walls by Miss King.

She said: "It is so enormous and it just grows and grows. I have to give it a pint of water every day."

However, the identity of the mystery plant is still unknown.

She added that there were no plans to get rid of the plant, but wasn't sure how she would move it even if she wanted to.
