    I've never been able to grow ivy successfully as it always seems to get spider mites on me. None of my other plants do but ivy is awful for getting it. Not sure what I need to do - however that being said I've had plants that grow long trails of green from one area to another and I love that. I think I just have to have greenery in every room ;)

    Long time ago when I started work I was in an inner office. Every Friday I carried all my plants to a window where they sat 'til Monday morning when I'd carry them all back into my office (vs having fake plants in my office). :) :)

    If I had a bay window, I would have green growing, for sure.
    I just set out a Mum, hoping it will winter over.

    It’s the soil ph that changes the color. They are a popular plant but not for me.

    I think they're beautiful, but I have enough flowers already.
