High David. Welcome to ATP.

You can add as much information about yourself as you want. Or add no more than you have right now. Smiling

What kind of plants do you grow?

is it clever to start rooting an aglonema in the winter to be a hydroponic or to wait for warmer weather?

Welcome!

The only thing that is really handy to know here is what zone you are in or the state you live in, just a general area. That is helpful to know if you want to ask questions about what types of plants to grow or winter hardiness ect. It is optional though.

This is such a beautiful plant. I do not grow it, so let us see if @purpleinopp can help us. She grows this plant.

Very nice list David. I just found out about syngonium last week, when I saw this tiny jewel on one of the container threads.

It's fine to stay anonymous, but if you're asking for growing advice, you'll get better answers if you can describe your climate, or growing conditions. i.e. it's a lot different growing most plants if you live in an arid climate vs. a humid one.

Do you have a garden, or just grow house plants? Pictures are very helpful.

Welcome David. If you don't use your last name, most people won't know who you are -- I use just my first followed by "Texas". It's a wonderful site -- I think you'll enjoy it. Very helpful folks -- and helps to see what others are doing in their gardens and GH.

Welcome! David.

If you're curious about other ATP members, you can search by State & Town or Zipcode, or browse a map. Anyone who HAS listed their location will show up on the Member Map. The location-mapping software is really good, it can handle things like "Central Texas". That can be handy if you want to swap plants or bulky items with other members, but don't want to pack them for mailing cross-country. (You could find someone who lives nearby, then C-mail them privately to arrange a swap or get-together.

If you don't list a location in your profile, other members won't be able to find you on the map.

MAP:
http://garden.org/users/memberlist/map.php
(Click on the left-hand blue menu button: "Goodies" then click:
"ATP Member Map - View all the ATP members on a map of the world.")

Hi & welcome! I do have some Aglaonemas, but have never done any hydroponics. When I want more of them, I stick the cuttings in a pot. Sounds like you have some lovely plants!

You're welcome to be as anonymous as you'd like, but when asking for advice that can vary by location, folks will ask where you are, for that reason. They're not being nosy, just trying to give the most appropriate advice. Hope you have fun on here!

Cool! At least climate and Zone don;t matter very much growing inside an apartment.

Maybe day-length and sun angle vary with latitude, but how many indoor growers depend solely on the sun for daylength?

David, it looks like you are doing a good job with "getting the hang of" this site -- way to go! There are LOTS of very helpful people here; I guess that's WHY we're here, we love talking about growing plants ! You can find plenty of information here about growing in containers, I hope you will stick around and get to know some of us a little better -- and let us get to know you, as well. Smiling

IDK without taking some kind of poll, LOL! TY for the giggle, Rick. ;) But totally agree about the sun angle. During winter, there is no direct sun in a north window. If I did keep my plants inside all year, they would be in diff spots for summer vs. winter. I didn't realize this discussion is only about indoor plants, sorry, but I do think there's some instances where it helps to know where folks are. If one happens to have holiday cacti, depending solely on the sun for day length is the best way to get blooms. Latitude can make a huge difference in the power of the rays. A few hours of AL sun, whether through a window or directly, is much more powerful than a few hours in Alaska. Repotting a plant in January isn't much of a concern here, but I wouldn't recommend it for those much farther north.

David, let me add my welcome to ATP.

If you check the navigation bar to the left and click on FORUMS, you will find that there is an ATP Forum dedicated to growing plants in apartments.

The thread "Gardening in Apartments!" in Gardening in Apartments forum

You might find some good information there, too.

Smiles,
Lyn
