I currently have 2 houseplants. One is a poinsetta and the other one has small green leaves. I am surprised I haven't killed them yet. I am not good with plants.

Absolutely! Good for the air in there, especially if you live with a smoker. Unfortunately I have 2 cats and, well, you can use your imagination.  ;)

Houseplants are lovely but I managed to kill a cactus so I gave up(I need things that whine at me, lol).  I have a couple of silk ones,  safer for the cats anyway (good excuse lol)

I have a few cut roots of an  aloe plant floating in water.
A few years ago, I met someone who had a whole bunch of aloe plants in his front yard.
He trimmed a plant and gave me a few stems.
I don't like to fuss with dirt and pots, so I have kept them floating in water for about three years.
I also have an Aerogarden.
I buy seed pods in February and if all goes well, the plants grow for 6 months.
I buy again in September.
I have salad greens, cherry tomatoes, herbs......

I like some house plants. I love orchids, they are so exotic and beautiful, and easy to take care of. We have 4, different colors, two big ones and two small ones. I also like having a rosemary plant, and aloe.

I have three houseplants at the moment. They all came from funerals so they are meaningful to me.

Oh SADLY I have a murderous green thumb  :bad:. I can kill any plant just by being in charge of it for one day. I do have some plants but they are looking sad.  :crybaby2:

I love them and they are beautiful, but I always forget to water them, so I am not a very good person to take care of house plants, I get busy doing too many other things.
