Advice on small plant for our bathroom please?

Posted: 08/12/2013 at 23:24

Thank you - now I know why our maidenhair fern has a lot of crinkly leaves!  It's in a (north-facing) sun lounge & drinks huge amounts of water, but for the last few weeks has been particularly sad looking. Perhaps a water spray would help?

I keep a spider plant in the bathroom but it's not very steamy there; it was either put it there or in the bin as I'm not really bothered about them but wouldn't bin a live plant!

What's the weather like in your area?

Rain washed away the snow rapidly & since then it's been quite cold. About 1c tonight, somehow I think that it'll go lower during the night!

Just a Canadian laugh.

Excellent - but wasn't it a good costume and he walked just like a bear?

Woke up to over 2" of snow this morning, was rather cold but lovely in the sun. (I wore my wooly Christmas pudding design hat to the shops). It's been slowly melting all day & is now almost all gone but pouring down with rain.

what's still flowering in your garden?

That's just showing-off Matt!!

Those chrysanths are stonking, you must have looked after them really well! I try not to grow anything that's not hardy, but I do like that pink one.

Oh yes, my toad lilies are still vg too, also forgot the clary sage & sidalceas/mallows - small flowers but several spikes with lots of flowers on. The hardy geraniums have been very good but the frosts seem to have done for them now.

Wonderful picture Clueless, very evocative.  I'm very keen on back-lit photos, did you take it??
