|I haven't had inside plants for years. I used to bring mine in every winter. Then forget to water them. I finally learned to just leave them outside and let God do the watering. Whatever survives is stronger for it! Each year I am amazed at how much comes back. Of course, it's rare for it to snow here and we only get about 4-5 (used to be only 3-4) really cold days of winter time. The rest of the time we're just complaining about it's too hot or it's too cold. Seems like we're never happy about the temperature. |
I loved reading about the surprises you've found. Even though my plants are outside, I do the same thing all the time. Just go around and "fondle" them. Well that didn't sound too good, but I definitely get to know them well enough to notice when a new bud is forming. Spring is an awesome time to get your macro camera out there and get some experience. :-)

|Good encouragement to get folks to 'know' their plants, not just use them for decoration. They do so much for us!!! 'Fondling' them is important...and I think they know that.... |
It's all about choices.

|Enjoyed your article! I'm very hands-on with my plants, too, both indoors and out. Your picture of hoya buds made me miss my poor hoya. It thrived for years, and had such gorgeous blooms! Then it went into an inexplicable decline, and I never was able to discern why. I tried to take cuttings to root, to start over, but even they didn't thrive. I miss my hoya! LOL|

I couldn't sleep so decided to read a few articles. I love house plants too and appreciate your care for them. I've never given mine quite as much attention as you do but now, thanks to your article, I probably will be better.
I have on philodendron that was a gorgeous lush gift about 4 years ago. It;s the prettiest plant in my house and while I should trim the length and start new ones, I can't seem to do it.
I also have several spider plants...love the variegated one the most.
