    The House Plants Thread

    I have been collecting a variety of cacti, succulents and other various house plants for the last 5 years. I will be continuously uploading pictures along with botanical names.

    Please feel free to post your own pictures as well!

    Probably.

    I heartily approve of this thread however. I am going to get a Venus Fly Trap soon. They seem fairly easy to grow and I think I have a perfect spot for one. It'll be happy and useful by the rear kitchen window.

    Asparagus Fern. Jade plant is also really good assuming you get at least some indirect light.

    Personally I'd just like to learn how not to kill orchids, they're ideal if you can get them to live a few months.

    Thanks, always wanted some house plants but don't feel like heating up the house by 20 degrees during summer by letting sun in.

    Take a look at Sansevieria trifasciata or "Mother in laws tongue" great looking low light plant that gets pretty big.

    It's Hardy as well just don't over water it.

    ZZ plants are great for low light conditions and are also drought tolerant.

    Mexican breadfruit plant.

    Monstera deliciosa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I took a cutting of my mothers plant a few years ago and this thing is crazy. I had to cut it a few times since it grows so fast and large. Sweet foliage too.

    Hey, weed is definitely a legitimate house plant. Stop being so miserable.

    I've got a fiddle leaf fig tree that takes up all the sunny real estate but I want to get more. Need to find a lot of plants that don't need sun.

    Its a pretty cool experience to grow plants. Flowers are pretty rewarding. Here is my house plant, a tropical hibiscus that can't survive outside here. In the winter it tends to grow some forks and a bit of length 1-2 inches in various branches but does not bloom during these months due to lack of sun power. I keep it about 6-8 inches from a window in my home over a one of my heating vents, and I have a privacy blind which I lower (its one of those accordion with air pocket style). Which keeps it from getting seared near the window during the night. It spends about 4.5/5 months of the year fully outside once the night time temperatures don't drop below 50 regularly.

    Anyways growing shit rocks, if you are a city person and have grown up in the city all your life. Growing some plants is not a life experience you should forgo on this Earth.

    This is the winter growth I get on limited sunlight months. You can see the leaves aren't near as robust as they become when it powers up to over 9000. That is some cat hair as one of my cats uses the pot to reach the window sill.

    cant recommend the jade plant enough. i have 5-6 that have been with me for nearly 15 years. They are low maintenance, and are nearly foolproof to propagate. It's as easy as pinching off a leaf or stem and putting it in some succulent soil mix (cheap at Lowes/HD.) If you can find someone that has a big plant, they would more than likely not mind giving you a piece of it.

    The jades I have are all propagated off of two plants- one 10'x10' monster that was nearly 75 years old, and then another that was smaller but still about 50 years old. They can grow big, it just depends on what type of pot and conditions you put them in.

    The UCONN greenhouse has an ephiphite room, three full sized walk in greenhouses, and an outside garden where they have assorted bushes sunflowers and hopps. There is also a cold room for the orchids. I can go there soon and take pictures if anyone is interested.

    I think several cultivars of hellebore have green or greenish petals. I know one house on my walk has almost pure green flowers around it's mailbox. I'm pretty sure they're hellebores. Looks so weird!

    I am willing to trade succulent cuttings and some cypress vine seeds. Feel free PM me if anyone is interested. I have many jade plants that are easy to propagate from leaves and some ZZ plant cuttings rooting in water as well.

    The spinach and the oregano are both dicotyledons. They both come out of the ground with two leaves.

    I'm fairly certain this is an elephant bush, they make interesting bonsai forms

    Mine has been outside for about a week and a half now, will take a month or so to make the first of many blooms. They are enjoyable every time they open.

    Some hibiscus blooms are edible! On another note I just ordered 100 tiger jaws seeds and 25 Opuntia microdasys v. pallida seeds (AKA bunny ear cactus.)

    Mr. Bungle are you in CT?? I want to snag a clipping or two of your fluted Jade. My girlfriend got a normal jade clipping from my stepmom last year and has passed that on to a few people. Both my stepmom and her would love a different variety.

    I'll post some pics of what my GF has growing tonight.

    I am in fact located in CT and would be more than happy to give you some cuttings of my jades! PM me when you get a chance.

    I got this one a few weeks ago, not sure what it is but as you can see its fucked up because both my cats are eating the shit like a salad bar. Cool looking though. (when it wasnt mangled by said kitties.)

    I'm cheap and lazy. I dig up ferns that come up naturally after we burn and give them out. They last pretty long, mom still has some I dug up 25 years ago.

    Ferns are great old prehistoric plants. They predate the dinosaurs and still have a visible exterior gametophyte!

    And mk that looks like a species of hosta with variegated foliage.

    This is one of my osteospermum. It's a simple and popular annual that comes in tons of colors but this one is just amazing. By far the best looking flower I have right now.

    mkopec;

    I have been learning about hostas lately. I have some that were planted by the previous owner. The more I learn about them, the more I understand that the ones on my property were planted almost perfectly. The person who put them there knew exactly what he was doing. And it is evident. Look at these:

    Spoiler: 


    hosta alba marginalis - 'the hosta that is white around the edges'

    Tell me those aren't happy flourishing plants! I love them.

    Your pink leafed hosta will do better outside.

    You are in North America, yes? It likes shade, water, and drainage. So it likes to be rained on, but it doesn't like to sit in a puddle of that rain. It prefers for the water to come and then go. And it prefers to be under a canopy of shade or partial shade and not out in the exposed open hot hard light. If it gets some direct sunlight that's okay but just make sure it is limited in duration. North facing or under a tree is good.

    Find the spot, dig a good hole, pour some gravel into the hole to allow for drainage, add some soil, and plant the hosta. Water it occasionally in high summer or if a drought occurs but otherwise it is fairly maintenance free.

    (As a side note. The size of my picture is slightly under the new maximum allowed on the forum. I had to resize the shit out of that photo to make it small enough to adhere to the new upload rules. So much good detail is lost. Sorry for how small it is. Neg Tuco to offset this injustice.)

    This creeping grass is in perfect bloom. (anyone know what it's called?)

    Neg Tuco for the injustice at the pathetic size of this photo.

    DoctorSpooge made a good point in the Admin thread. He said to make sure to spread the word even into the small niche threads that we may frequent, so that we can get as many people as we can to be made aware:

    The site has been sold. An exodus is in the making. I don't know that we are definitively all moving or not, but let it be known, the new site will be ReReRolled.org.

    Some people are arguing that nothing will happen under our new overlords and we needn't leave. Others are pushing for a full exodus starting now. But I just wanted to get any lurkers in this thread to at least register over at the new site (being Admin'd by Suineg) in preparation in case the move is made.

    I love plant people!

    Apparently the shrinking file upload size was done in preparation for the transfer of ownership.
