The Houseplant Thread
I hope this isn't out of place, as most houseplants aren't edible. If it is, please move it?
Anyway- apart from my occasionally-indoors vegetables I mentioned in Etherea's "Allotment News" thread, I have a number of houseplants:
Clivia miniata- this is a nice relative of Amaryllis which doesn't drop its leaves periodically like Amaryllis does. The strap-shaped leaves are a nice dark green, but about once a year, it makes a cluster of orange-and-yellow lilylike flowers that last about a month. It's mildly poisonous, so I keep it away from any animal companions when I have them.
The other ones I have are:
A potted Majesty Palm which was being thrown out last summer- it was in rough shape, and winter is always hard on plants, so I don't know how long I'll be able to keep it alive.
Offshoots/cuttings of two plants from friends: a Peace Lily which they divided, and cuttings from a Dracena reflexa(?) which had gotten HUGE and was touching the ceiling. Also an Epiphyllum cactus from a cutting someone gave me over a year ago- it's really putting a growth spurt on now, but it'll have to get MUCH bigger before it blooms- the flowers are huge and fragrant, but open for only a night. The plant I got it from grows in a local library, and of course, since the flowers are open only after the library is closed, everyone misses the show.
