When the wife/husbend or in my case 'staff' says no more plants and you wake up and find there is no more room for anything in the grow room/house even if you wanted it.


What do you do to keep your obsessive hobby in bounds and still find meaning and enjoyment out of it?.


do you volunteer at a greenhouse?


work for a plant shop?.


join a society? . hmmm the list goes on.



I'm not there yet but close.

You mean I must place boundaries on my tropical plant growing? Whistling Like having a large house, regardless of now many greenhouses one has, he/she finds a way to fill every nook and cranny. I wish I had built my two greenhouses twice their size, but saying that, I know they would still be filled to capacity. Sighing!

The reason it's so hard to lose weight when you get up in age is because your body and your fat have become good friends.

No you don't..... but I need too, I don't want to become a plan horder.

BTW my new Anomorphallus or voodoo Konjac is doing very nicely/ putting down roots and growing a nice fat shoot. I keep it well watered and fertilized.

I just got a reply from my email to the head staff about my Amorphallus bulbifer perchice. She isn't happy, but i'm sure she will get over it in time. I just have to realize no more plants means no more. i will store them at my job i said to her in reply so they don't crowd our basement which i don't know is heated in winter= then there's the added problem of it blooming.


Any babies/offsets I get I will give to lynne or to friends. thus keeping the voodoo lily population at 2. and trimming back the extra pots. I have/ they can be used to pot up the babies. The bulbifer I got will be a mature bulb so it will flower next year/ hopefully in lynnes upstairs attic/ I'll take it there in winter and back home after its done smelling/flowering. The konjac isn't mature so it will be a long time before its a problem.


Were making a new table for the plants I have already. the shell ginger is getting big so it will become a floor plant. along with my bird of paradise.
