I love ikea. I need to return there next week!

I hate ikea. Its one of the worst forms of torture a wife can inflict on her husband.

I love house plants and have heaps in my main bedroom balcony as it gets sun all day. I even got my mother inlaws tongue to flower this year so I was stoked with that. The only one that's giving me any trouble is my jasmine it only grows on one side of the trunk even after pruning right down to the base last autumn.

Ive also got a couple of ferns in my babys room and mint and rosemary outside and I just planted some thyme and basil seeds last friday so fingers crossed they sprout.

smee82 For as long as I’ve had snake plants, I’ve never seen one flower. I didn’t even know they could flower until very recently! Is this the first time yours had flowered for you??



Just picked up this beautiful Polly Alocasia yesterday on clearance at Lowe’s. Was $25 but I got it for $10! Pink pot included. It just wasn’t as big as the others so they couldn’t sell it for the same price. Totally obsessed with it, should have grabbed two.

My husband and I are still married because he has never once come with me .

That's an awesome collection!! I am going to get a mother in-laws tongue if Ikea ever has the smaller size again haha.

Yep this spring was the first time and only 1 stalk. They need to be a bit mature, root bound and a dry and cold winter but not too dry or cold.

My ZZ plant is the next one I want to get to bloom. Most of my cactus and succulents bloom every year now.

“Out door” plants are CHEAP compared to indoors
But I guess I could’ve started from seeds but whatevs
 

BReefer97

Outdoor plants ARE cheap compared to indoor plants. It’s kind of crazy. I saw this beautiful plant called Angel Wings today and I so wanted it to work indoors but one of the employees told me it wouldn’t do well. It feels like leather, I still had to get it regardless. Too neat to pass up.

Which one is the chocolate mint? That’s really neat!

I just picked up this awesome Bergonia Rex Fedor today, it was the last one and I walked all the way back through the nursery to grab it. Changed my mind about a dozen times on it but really glad I decided on it. The stems are absolutely mind blowing to me. Cashier even fawned over it.
And it’s not a house plant but it’s very well worth mentioning; I picked up a ghost pepper plant as well my Carolina reapers have been doing so well I decided to add more variety to the family.

Yeah everything I got was only like 2 dollars!!! I saw one labeled begonia but I wasn’t sure if it was the kind of begonia that can be inside... I’m not sure if it’s “close enough” if I put it on the window sill
This one is the mint, I think it’s kind of cute like a house plant

I’m having a really good day!! Last night I found out the restaurant fired me and wasn’t planning on telling me that ever (I only worked there for 6 hours, they didn’t want to train me I guess) so I was pretty mad. But then I got an interview and hired on the spot at a job I wanted way more!! Yay for scuba shops, boo for monkey joes grill- you guys suck

Well that's rather rude of the restaurant! And I feel a little jealous of your plant collection (okay, more than a little jealous). Glad things worked out and you got an even better job!


I finally found an aluminum plant after years of looking!! I'm so happy. It's a plant with sentimental value more than anything else, but I'm very pleased to have one again.


20190513_175548.jpg

I tried finding some new pots today but didn't see anything good for what I'm looking for. I don't know where else to look at this point! Maybe online...

loneminx I would gladly do a plant swap with u!! (if I could) this is a super freaking cool plant. I thought it was a fittonia at first

I can't remember if you said you were in Canada or not but I could probably mail you some stuff if you were
and yea. I'm happy with how it worked out. I don't want to work for people who would do this kind of thing

You should put that up on Tinder. I bet you'd be very popular with the ladies

The only houseplant I can keep alive are snake plants. The main issue I found is I tend to over water. I since switched to gritty mix, and my plant keeping has greatly improved. It's a bit of a pain to make your own as you have to buy several stuff in bulk, so I purchased pre-made ones on Ebay.

Checked my little veggie garden before I left for work this morning and my lettuce and you maI caI has sprouted well but so have hundreds and thousands of grass so I'm going to be very busy weeding this weekend. The thyme has finally started to sprout and thankfully there's not much grass mixed in with it. I'm still waiting for my basil to sprout but my rosemary and mint going strong.

I broke down and ordered one online.

I should be getting my pilea peperomioides by the end of the week!

I'm so excited!

Ugh, Addie42 I've been absolutely dying for a monstera of any kinda. Now I know what to ask for for my 6 year anniversary though The one you’ve gotten is beautiful! What kind of monstera is it exactly?

And loneminx, that’s awesome! I really like that plant, it will be going on my wish list for sure. It would look really nice in a jade colored pot, or even a really pale green Try looking on Amazon, you can find some really nice sets. Sentimental plants are so great and so not great at the same time. You try so hard to take care of them so they absolutely thrive and goodness forbid they start wilting or yellowing; it’s like taking the soul of out your body.

And thank you !!

Ooooh, this looks like my kind of thread! Botany is actually how I got back into the aquarium hobby (through aquaponics). We have five plants growing in topped-up vases at the moment, especially Papyrus (or at least, the variety we have) seems to do very well on our acid tap water. I kind of hope to make a paludarium one day, but that is still far off for now.
Wonderful to see everyone's pictures, all these plants so well taken care of ^^ Kalanchoe usually last one or two seasons before people throw them out, they are so dirt cheap. Shame, just like Jade plants they can grow into interesting shrubberies if left to do their thing.
It's late at night now but I'll try to remember to snap some pictures tomorrow. And I'll try not to put all 80 or so of them in here =# Also do potted outdoor plants count if I treat them as my babies? There are some young Japanese Maples, Camellias and a Passiflora standing under the cover of the porch. I do not trust them to handle frost yet and there have been some weird late spring frosts these past few weeks.

The lemnseed May sprout and grow, but it’s very likely that the lemons will be sour- there still great for lemonade and cooking !

Jade is definitely one of my favourite plants. Really cool to see how they grow as they age
Not a house plant but I think these magnolia trees are gorgeous

Yup! For some reason mine don't grow very fast (I've had them for several years, but no sign of a tiny tree-shape yet. Perhaps I live too far north and my sun isn't bright enough to encourage strong growth?)

Indeed it is! We have a white one in our garden, unfortunately the blossoms came off about 2 weeks ago so no pics. It was pruned back last year, this spring we discovered some of the branches that fell below and that we didn't end up removing sprouted roots. Now we have 3 of them! If I ever see a discounted purple one somewhere, it will definitely get bought. Somehow I find it way more fun to stumble across plants rather than to purposely go looking for them? Or maybe that just helps reduce inevitable clutter, haha!

I hope I can keep it alive long enough to propogate some more so I can have extras to fall back on lol. It's more symbolic sentiment. Then there's my Hoya that is a cutting from my Grandma's. THAT one I am determined to keep alive. It looks really unhappy right now and I am kind of freaking out!! Probably just needs nitrogen so that's my plan is to get some fertilizer.

And yeah Amazon does have some nice little sets!

Oh wait that tree is yours? I totally did not catch on. What a beautiful mature tree I am officially jealous. I visited Tokyo once, they had some of their streets lined with magnolias as far as the eye could see. And I was there during blooming season <3 It was truly a sight to behold! They were a lot younger than yours though. GL with propagating! Sometimes it can just be frustrating right? I tried to root cutting from that same magnolia before but they all melted, and then it did it on its own. Plants have attitudes lol.

Oooh an inherited hoya (well sort of)! Awesome I love how long-lived they are. I've got a carnosa that I've had for about a year. I love it a lot - obviously it helps that they are super easy, haha - but it isn't exactly vigorous. Again, I think the long, dark winters up north are not really helping this australian grow. It'll get there though. With time.
I don't know about fertilisers. Have you considered using changed out tank water to water your plants? It contains a lot of that precious nitrogen but neatly dissolved and diluted so there is no risk of overdose. I've found it to be very beneficial (Also maybe it just needs more sun? I put mine in as full and bright a sun spot as I can give it)
 

plecodragon

loneminx You have a lovely aluminum plant- if it grows to gangly and tall you can clip off the taller piece and put into a container of water and root it. Give it light and keep the rooted end wet and it will grow roots and make a new plant. I propagate house plants as a hobby. Later I will see if I can post a pic of what I have- more then some greenhouses. LOL love plants.

Addie42 posted about the magnolia but it is beautiful!!

And my aquarium is still cycling but I do have a turtle tank I guess I could try! I used dilute coffee the other day. It's on the porch and getting sun so we will see. I do not know how long it takes to make a big difference.

I'll have azolla in my new aquarium once it arrives and if the turtle doesn't like it apparently it makes great fertilizer too!

I am propagating as a hobby now lol. I hope to have lots of tiny plants at some point. I currently have a peperomia rooting in water and am so excited to finally plant it soon.

I think I might just be an obsessive searcher lol. I do live in a pretty large city and have loads of free time. (Less now that I found a summer job)
Took me a while to find it for cheap enough. I can’t justify spending more than 20-30 dollars on a single plant
I’ve wanted this one for a while. This is completely off topic but I think I’m developing a strong interest in orchids too
Have you gotten your pilea pep in the mail yet???

Took me a while to find it for cheap enough. I can’t justify spending more than 20-30 dollars on a single plant
I’ve wanted this one for a while. This is completely off topic but I think I’m developing a strong interest in orchids too
Have you gotten your pilea pep in the mail yet???
Orchids are beautiful but they seem daunting to me. I technically have one at my mom's house that she all but killed. I don't know what to do with it. Our house gets too cold.in the winter for them to be happy here I think?

And I did!!! I posted about it on Thursday I think. It's recovering I believe. Still kind of yellowish but I'm pretty sure it looks like it's improving.

I’m more of an African violet and orchid person. Violets are my forte, I can bring them back from just about anything and cloning them is very rewarding.

Here’s a little violet clone I started a good while back. It’s the first time this plant has produced flowers

A new cloning in the process, it was a bit wilted yesterday but seems to of perked up some. Hopefully it pulls through and produces a couple babies. I already forgot what the parent plant looks like so the blooms will be a surprise.

An orchid my aunt left in my care when she became worried about the yellowing and slightly wilted leaves. Just repotted it today, it was quite root bound and had a few bad roots as well. I expect the flowers to die off soon due to the stress, but better to have a healthy flowerless plant than a dying plant with flowers.

Well I finally gotten more plants a few weeks ago and I'd like to share! I've recently gotten into seeing what plants I can have sit on top of my aquarium for extra filtration.

I researched and bought a small monstera deliciosa cutting and hoping it grows for me to get another cutting to try and water root for my aquarium.

I've also traded a begonia cutting for some wandering Jew cuttings with an acquaintance and water rooted them. One has been in my aquarium for a week or two now as the first experiment.

You look so pretty and happy!!
I need to go to our conservatory again. I used to go to one for my birthday every year because I hate gray cold days and just wanted to go somewhere green and warm.

Thank you!!!!! <3
The excitement started when I saw a cactus taller than me and a giant monstera leaf. Everything was super cool... I pointed out all the ones I want and have to my boyfriend
It was free to get in and honestly took us a while to find it
