You love it....

Have you considered a Clivia?  It tolerates total neglect and mine seems to be in flower virtually all the year round with several big orangy heads of flowers.  I've had to split it after three years, and also amused myself by planting a couple of seeds from the flower head and gained a couple of baby plants.  As I am often away for a month at a time it needs to be pretty self sufficient.....and it is.

Seems to cope well.  I do move it about a bit though....a bit like the orchids, can cope with shade and not direct sunlight (the ends of a couple of leaves scorched this summer in sunlight) - stays in an unheated lobby some of the year, and doesn't seem to mind that we forget to water it - at other times is in a centrally heated room.  Versatile.

I have a very large rubber plant which is a cutting from the parent I bought in 1970. Thriving. However I have no talent for growing anything else indoors. All failures. By the way, she's called Gwendoline....

i have had a rubber plant years ago and killed it saddly by pulling the leaves off it to see the white milk run out of it.

I grow xmas cactus on my lounge windowsills. They're in sun all year round and flower Nov/Dec. You could also try the money plant or crategus, or even mother in laws tongue.

I love my 40  year old rubber plant... it's one of the family... but nothing else seems to want to share my space.... I am obviously an outdoor gardener. House plants and I don't seem to mix.

Ah, yes, GM, mother-in-laws tongue (Sanseveria) can make a lovely tall plant with lots of light and fuss, but happily stands shade and neglect. Prefers neglect if in shade, and can look lovely without taking up too much space.

No jokes neccessary, Diddy!!!!
