|A Scheffelera,(or Umbrella plant)|
I had gotten into a houseplant slump for the next 10 years because I had the yard to work in. Now the yard is becoming too much for me. Sucks to admit it but it is true. I cannot do all that Iused to do in it and I had to stop becoming depressed about it. . So I started getting some houseplants. Here are a couple that I have gotten recently.
That umbrella plant is upstairs in my room. It already has new growth. I am going to repot all of these plants in the fall. That is the best time to do it. The heat of the summer is enough stress. I paid $7.99 for that plant at the local grocery store. It was calling to me from the store window as I was checking out.
Buy me Heidi! I want to live with you!
Now, it is a leaf dropper and that tends to piss me off, but I will be okay with it. It is still gorgeous and everyone tells me it will be HUGE!
It can take a beating! It is in a too small pot with not much dirt. It needed to be watered badly. I watered it, put it on my dresser in front of the window and it bloomed a leaf! It likes it here. If all goes well, this will be a huge plant also. I have this low table in the dining room that I can put it on.
|Mother in Law`s tongue/Not my plant|
I bought one on a trip to Home Depot a couple months ago and it needs to be repotted. It is large and it likes living here. And I only paid $5 for it. They wanted to get them out of the store. I have another one that I adopted from the same place as the Philly. That MIL tongue needs some TLC. It is not seated in it`s pot very well. I think I will need some staking for awhile. I am very happy that I have all these new plants to fret over. All my catci do not need me that much so I needed some new greenery to have fun with in the winter months.
Now I need to decide what kinds of pots to put them in!
