    • I was just watering mine and got to thinking about how old some of them are.  I have a Christmas cactus that was very old when I got it, and a pony tail palm, and I got both when my son was a toddler.

      I have a hoya that came from a cutting off my mom’s plant that she got from a cutting off my plant that I bought at a flower shop in 1992!

    • Oh no!  I can relate, I have a daughter like that. I have given her the hardiest, toughest to kill plants that I can think of, and she’s killed them all.

    • Plants are very tricky, they can look like at times they are thriving, and then all of a sudden do a quick departure..lol.

      Right now, in my living room, which gets medium to partial medium/low light in the winter, and high/medium light in the summer, there are five tropical style plants..mostly dracaena, which thrive on a minimal amount of water, except for my floor plant which is a monster.

      I have a hibiscus which will bloom pretty coral colored flowers soon, a fern which prefers low light, a prayer plant that has survived since the birth of our son in 1987, a rubber plant which has cool leaves, a small bamboo plant and a cactus plant that has really long leaves.

      It is a menagerie!estatic

    • Oh, I love hibiscus!  I had one for a few years.  Even if they don’t bloom, the foliage is pretty.  The one I had was a great weather predictor.  Every time it bloomed, we got flooded.  LOL!  

      In my last house I had something like 50 plants.

    • yes ...may sound strange but i do have plants and do not know their names....i read the ‘how to care instructions’ on the card and thats about it.  i go for plants that look unusual, that have a deep purple green or red green colouring and ones that have a beautiful smell..i have not been able to grow flowers and i am better learning to not over water my plants. they sit on our verandah which is quite covered and gives good light and protection from strong gusty winds.

    • We have 7 plants in our home and my hubby takes care of all of them because if I would, they would all be dead!  Some of the plants we have are a spider plant, a pointsetta, an African violet, and a spider plant.

    • I have 3 indoor plants, what kind are they, I have no idea. All I know is, I haven’t killed them yet and that’s a miracle....lol, I don’t have a green thumb at all. But they are doing very well. Hubby replanted one of them into a bigger pot cause it was out growing the other one and I thought for sure it would die after that cause unusually they do after we replant them. Like I said, I don’t know what kind they are, I do know one of them is some kind of bamboo plant I got for Christmas like 3 years ago and it’s doing good heart

    • I was reading an article that said styling with houseplants is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to decorate as they are versatile and come in so many sizes and colors and can be placed anywhere (so long as you follow lighting instructions) and the benefits are amazing to us humans as the plants give off oxygen and take in carbon dioxide.

    • I have 3 very old plants. The trick I found is not to water or transplant them and they live! I couldn’t tell you what kind they are. Is there one called ” impossible to kill‘?
