I’ve never really actively thought about my plants until as of lately. The first plant I’ve ever really wanted and went out to look for is my Pilea plant (the circle one) and I’m just super excited about it! I went around fixing the pots on my plants this week
Show me your cool plants !!

Fanatic

We have been keeping plants for a long time, and it seems like I can keep them successfully apart from aquatic plants which always seem to die. Our aloe plant is nearly six years old at this point, it’s about two feet wide.

What beautiful plants, the first one is my favorite!

Here’s a couple photos of succulent cactus we have growing indoors in front of the window.

Thank you!! Yours are beautiful too
Apparently this plant was pretty expensive a couple years ago since it was “rare” I’ve never seen it for sale before. I’m excited to give its babies away to friends

I showed my houseplant hoarder sister, Chelsea your tank. I want her to get back into aquariums since she’s a plant guru and could give me free plants haha
She says your tank is beautiful

Honestly getting into houseplants is an A+ way to detour MTS

One of my favorite is the african mask it too would have done well in my aquarium and I will be putting one in pond this year. It's the shiny pointed leaf one.

Bought these lights from costco they are helping the plants during winter.

Bought a few tropical begonias a few years ago. They like my bright kitchen and fish water for watering.

This is my favorite house plant but I do not know its name.

It's definitely part of the genus Hoya. As for the species, it looks like a Hoya lanceolata.


I also have quite a few plants around the house, but it somehow ends up belonging to my mother. Here are some of the special ones.

Hoya carnosa

I think he thinks it's an opponent but, what a great contrast to his colors. I believe he will be soon surrounded by the way your interest is going. I think it's awesome.

UHM THIS THING IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN I ANTICIPATED!!! I got it for 10 bucks on Facebook
I’m a little bit terrified of myself right now
My brother wants to steal the jar though lol, maybe I’ll give it to him if my terrarium fails

Like I said the african mask one of my favorite. They like wet feet and apparently get huge.

So do you think I should keep it in the plastic pot or put it in the terracotta??
 

Jack B Nimble

I think the soil prep and water in the dish below the pot is important. Mine just in tropical soil and watered weekly. Google alocasia I believe it's called.

Where did you find your Pilea??? I have been searching for one in stores lol. I am also collecting peperomia plants currently (only have one so far - they're also hard to find).

I also have a rope hoya, some spider plants, a hobbit jade, a bougainvillea (it lives outside when the weather is nice), and an aloe.

I just bought a bookshelf that once it is put together will hopefully hold a bunch of house plantsin front of a window.

My hobbit jade and my new peperomia.

Yes!!! I love this thread and everyone’s plants!!

I have had some of my plants for 10-15 years, and I have a Hoya that is over 30 years old, given to me by my mother-in-law!

Addie42 my pilea is one of my favourites too...I had to track it down on kijijI about a year ago. Then the other day I also saw one at Canadian Tire (I am a fellow Ontario resident)! And that’s also where I got my African mask too!! Haha!!

My Monstera Deliciosa would probably be my most favourite though, going on 15 years old.
I love and collect different types of jade...my favourite is the Crassula varigata, but the Gollum jade is fun too, and I also recently found a wavy leaved jade as well, Crassula ovata undulata.
I love my purple oxalis, and my rubber plants...I have lots of succulents too.,,
It’s hard to pick a favourite, I definitely have MPS...my daughter has counted my pots at close to 100! Oops!!

I am still on the look out for a fishbone cactus though!!! Haha!!!

Addie42 I think you asked Smalltownfishfriend about the plant to the right of her spider plant...it looks like it has babies that grows on the tips of the leaves...is that right? A type of Kalanchoe? Mother of thousands maybe?? If so, I have a tons, and you are welcome to as many as you want Addie, if you ever come to southwestern Ontario!

I got my pilea from Canadian tire! Lol
I have a really huge one near me in Ottawa

LeticiaM me too!! A lot of my plants are from Canadian tire or rona! I’ve been giving my pilea babies away to friends that I trust so they can become more common houseplants. And I sold 1 to a stranger for 3 dollars LoL
Your monstera is GORGEOUS!! I want one
Where did you find it?

Addie42, thank you! I got the Monstera over a decade ago as a tiny plant with only a couple of leaves...it was so long ago I don’t even remember how I got it!! Not helpful, I know! Some greenhouses will special order plants, or stalk kijiji...I do see them listed from time to time.

Thank you loneminx ! You might be surprised about your cats though...I have 5 of them! One is actually in the first picture I posted in her favourite spot...her bed on the windowsill! I found they leave most plants alone unless it looks like grass.. anything ‘palm-like’ has to be well out of their reach or it will be chewed! I would love a pony-tail palm (they are gorgeous!!) but am out of places out of their reach at the moment!!

Well my aloe has been chewed up a bit and I had a Venus flytrap last year that was completely eaten down to the dirt lol. I've lost multiple spider plants in the past although that's less surprising than the others! I just don't really trust them now!

It's really only the one that I have to worry about these days, so in the future I will hopefully have a bit more greenery inside .

ETA: I have four! I am glad I'm not the only one who has more than a few lol.

What chewed your fly trap??? dog or something??
I sort of want a fly trap but I’m worried it’s too much commitment if that makes sense... where would I get the flies from...

It genuinely makes me feel super happy to look at other people’s plants and my own lol
keep those photos coming if you see dis thread

Peronia in the middle love the spikes.

Harder to see her blended in but it's doing well in the felt planter I made for it funny as it's always wet. My favorite though as well are the earth stars and they get very pink in bright light as they were dark green.

My stupid cat that eats things he should certainly not eat lol.

And we never fed it flies actually - we had fruit flies that it did catch on occasion, but otherwise we'd take bugs that were trapped in the glass on our porch and give them as offerings .

LOL I just asked in a houseplant fb group [where to get one in canada] and someone else said their cat ate theirs after 3 days as well

my next plant I get will be a fly trap!!! (I also sort of want a prayer plant)
I think I can handle the distilled water stuff... I'll feed ants or something
what substrate did you pot yours in?

I never got around to repotting it because it didn't live long enough. They naturally grow in boggy environments and I think it came full of peat moss and something else.

What is wrong with these cats eating carnivorous plants??

I certainly hope yours fares better!

So cool how quickly they move!

I gotta get my hands on these. I bought my brother one for Christmas... I wish I kept it!! Lol

Back to carnivorous plants...I just watched a vid that says you can feed them fish food!! Weird right? The girl feed it the classic betta pellet... I wonder if they’d take frozen bloodworms! Lol
