I received a beautiful live plant arrangement from a friend for Christmas this year. It includes a begonia, a bromeliad and what I was told is a terrestrial orchid with yellow flowers (is that right?). I know how to care of the first two plants, but must find out what exactly I'm to do with the last. I'd prefer not to kill it.
The hydroponics herb garden that I'd received for my birthday last May is still doing well. The only plants that are starting to give up are the chives. I think the other herbs would keep growing until Doomsday as long as I provide them with water and fertilizer.
As you can see my banished poinsettias are benefiting from the hydroponics’ light as well.
Which are your favorite indoor plants at your house? I always enjoy Rosamunde Pilcher's description of plants in her books..."There was a huge window with a view of the sea, its deep sill crowded with indoor plants – geraniums and ivy and a Victorian jug full of pink roses." ~from 'Another View' by Rosamunde Pilcher
