I am looking for a house plant but not so sure what to choose.OH hates plants in the house so looking for something to change her mind.What plants do you have in your house and why?
Ok i get the point then that no-one likes house plants. my wife is that bad ,she can kill a plastic flower.
Well, it all depends where you want to put it - on a sunny windowsill or a shady corner? Tell us a bit more ....
Orchid orchid and more orchids!!! My oh bought a bonsai from ikea that I thought I had killed lol it lost all its leaves last year ( in autumn!!! Doh) it's thriving this year lol why I thought it wouldn't she's in autumn is beyond me....
Agree with Dove,also consider your heating and the postion of the plant in relation to it.
The OH hates them on the windowsill so they would have to be on the floof in a corner away from the radiator.
So you're talking about a shady corner in a centrally heated room, you'll need something quite large for it to have any 'presence' and avoid being a trip hazard - looks like a Monstera Deliciosa http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=1292 would fit the bill, or a Ficus Benjamina http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficus_benjamina
The cheese plant will grow to big even though i do like them,and the fig you only have to sneeze and the leaves drop off.I did like your choice dove, in the right terms and conditions.
which type of ferns do you have sara?I love ferns
to many pricks sorry lol.
You'd be no good in my house then, cactus all over the kitchen windowsill....
nasty things i prefer succulents and sempraviums myself.ugly things cacti are in my opinion
What about ferns in glass bottles/cases?
that sounds good dove,and maybe planted with a maidenshair fern.And I also have an asparagus fern.What say's it peeps?
i like that I also have a
How is the aspisestra for living in moist soil as the fern like?
Aspidistra tolerates most things( including a fair amount of neglect) and likes a moist but well-drained soil but I have known it rot at the base if it gets too damp, particularly in low light where it doesn't get the chance to utilise that moisture in putting on a growth spurt.
I thought that it was more dessert like?
silly me what an idiot i am,sorry.and as for you Paula you are on the wrong page lol.so there.
