    I have a Dendrobium Orchid, two Fuchsia orchids and a Phalaenopsis orchid which I've managed to keep alive for the last two years.:) Before that I was an orchid murderer and every one I got died.:smt022 Now I appear to have them in the right place and they are thriving. I also have a Clivia lily, two Christmas Cacti and a Peace lily.

    We’re quite fond of houseplants These are overwintering here. Some of them will go Into the windowsill soon.

    Nice plants! I have several plants ... a couple of Ficus Benjamina's, 3 Brugmansias that I overwinter, a few spider plants, a few different sansevieria plants, a black and blue salvia (that came all the way from the southern states from a Stewbie), a Bougainvillea, a few aloe vera plants, a small parlor palm ... gosh I can't remember what the rest are! I also have a few containers full of seeds that I just sowed ... cucamelons and tomatoes.

    @Odif you have a jungle there!!

    @eileen I gow clivias too. I have several quite large ones that bloom their heads off, and a slew of babies growing under lights in the basement. I have struck out repeatedly with orchids, so I am very impressed with your orchid ability.

    @carolyn I am not surprised. I don't know how you would have the time.

Just now getting outside this month away from the houseplants..workin my tail off outside between veggie gardening, 400 grapevines, blueberry patch, peach, apple, and pear trees..all so demanding of time but it all is so rewarding!!
