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.

Miss King said: "I don't know what the plant is called and neither does anyone I know. I am a member of a gardening club but I don't have a clue."
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.
