Do you Appreciate Houseplants?
« on: January 10, 2016, 09:58:45 am »
I was told to get a Boston Fern, this is to put moist back in the air. The spider plant is a good plant to intake fumes. Herbs you eat them. Do you have house plants? Do you know what your plants are doing for you? lol, Some plants helps with circulation of air inside your house, have you noticed this? Have a gr8 day  :present:

I have my grandmother's Christmas cactus which is probably 40 years old.  I have three African violets and an ivy. I'm not really into house plants anymore, but I used to have dozens of them.

I love houseplants.

I have a "Moses in the Bullrushes" that is 23 years old, from a very dear friend.

The apartment I live in now is so shady, I have mine under a special grow light, and they do fine. That gives me a garden all year around.

I share shoots with my son-in-law who has a green thumb thing going on.

When I was younger I used to have indoor houseplants (only one I remember is a cactus) but it quickly started having gnats... We got rid of the gnats eventually but had to giveaway the houseplant when we moved

I really like house plants.  I'm just not very good at raising them.

I like plants they just don't like me. I have what they call a black thumb.
at the present moment I have a plant I was given for the holidays and so far it is still alive.
Ihave done well with sider plants and do wish I had an aloe plant which is known as the burn plant :peace: :snowflake: :wave:

I like houseplants but do not have any good places to put them by sunny windows.

I was trying to keep my hibiscus plant alive over winter, but just had to throw it out this week.  Dead plant :(

I love plants. Unfortunately I have NO luck with them.  Every plant that I've ever had has died, guess I have a black thumb instead of a green one lol

I love houseplants. I have 3 hanging baskets and 8 either on tables or large ones on the floor in pots.  I'm pretty lucky don't kill too many, but have had my share of killing them!

I have Philodendron's and Peace Lillie's.  They are so easy to care for and grow very fast, my favorite type of house plant.   :rose:

I like houseplants. I have a few in my room right now. Two orchids and an azalea bush. My dad brought home the second orchid yesterday and it's the only one with flowers right now. My first orchid and azalea bush are starting to get new leaves and still thriving even though the flowers have died off.

I like house plants, but unfortunately they don't like me much as no matter what I do, they often die on me after owning them for a few weeks or months.  Haven't been able to keep one alive. 

On the bright side, plants seem to do quite well for me outside of the house - in my yard and garden.  So I'll take that trade off.  :)

I dont have any kind of house plant's, never did any studies about them either, not interested at this time, maybe it's because I dont have a green thumb for any kind of plants.  Sorry.   ;)

I had houseplants years ago.  Now I don't have room for them.  I wish I did!
