In the terrarium is an Earth Star that is about to bloom. It is turning pink beginning in the middle. I have had this fellow for some years. This is how I can tell the days are getting longer. It begins to bloom aka turn pink. There is also a bit of moss I have tried to get growing in this terrarium. I think it has taken this time. I can't say how many times I have tried this but I am at least hopeful this time. Both of these plants like the same conditions.
The Staghorn Fern is growing now. Another testament that the days are getting longer.
This fern I am not quite sure what it is but it has similar feet like the rabbit's foot fern but the little feet aren't furry. It is a good grower though.
My list of plants (not all pictured) are:
3. Kangaroo fern
4. Rabbits foot fern
6. Cobweb Sempervivum
7. Earth Star
8. Corn Plant
10. Nightblooming Cerus
11. Little fern (?)
12. Orange & Green Plant
13. Dichondra 'Silver Falls'
14. Aloe 'Blue Elf'
15. Mammillaria 'brain'is what I call it.
16. Mammillaria matudae 'Thumb Cactus'
17 Pony tail palm
18. Varigated ivy
22. MIL plant
23. Narcissus bulbs that are finished blooming.
There you have it. If you would like to share your house plant census please go to MrMD post and leave a comment with your link.
Love that plant in the teapot - so cute!ReplyDelete
Great foliage on all of those houseplants that you do have, Lisa!ReplyDelete
I like that snake plant in the teapot quite a bit. I've not seen one where the leaves flare out so prettily at the ends before.
Hi Lisa, except for succulents, plants are never happy here either. There is zero humidity in my home Dec thru March. Poor things.ReplyDelete
Now Lisa...did you have to mention rabbit in your post!!!!!ReplyDelete
I love the stag horn fern....they are such statement plants.....
I understand what you are saying about the moss....it only seems to grow where it wants to.
Thanks for participating. I love the teapot planter! I've always admired Staghorn fern; the 1st one I saw was hanging over a door in my sophomore biology classroom. I'm also guilty of forgetting to water, but it seems that's better for the plants than over-watering them. Unless you completely forget about them and find only dried up bits of leaf. (Been there, done that.)ReplyDelete
You have a great collection of houseplants, Lisa. I love the Staghorn fern and the ponytail palm. Like you, I'm not very consistent with watering andReplyDelete
caring for my plants. Somehow they
stagger through until spring when
they all get hauled outside. Do you take yours out as wellÉ
Lack of light is the biggest problem in my house too, and the limiting factor in the number of houseplants that I have or that survive.ReplyDelete
Your houseplants are looking good, Lisa! I counted mine, but that's all I did--I'm afraid they're not worth photographing:) I just saw a photo last week of a Kentucky coffee bean tree--they are beautiful. Don't forget to plant your seed!ReplyDelete
Lisa, your house plants look great. Water or no, they seem to be doing well. I love the staghorn fern! And the teapot makes a great planter. Like Rose, my plants are really not worth taking photos of. They are surviving-barely. The garden window helps with light, but it has been too cold for them to do much growing.ReplyDelete
It seems I can't keep houseplants inside actually for the habit I have of planting them outside. :-)ReplyDelete
Look at you with your staghorn fern!!! It is looking very healthy... I would never have known they would do well indoors. I didn't bring mine in or cover it during the freezes and it did just fine hanging from the big oak. I thought for sure I would lose it.
You've got yourself some nice plants! I like the second photo very much. Thanks for starting the day in a green way.ReplyDelete
You have so many lovely houseplants that it is hard to believe in your care as not being a perfect one. There are only a very few plants that I have inside as I prefer the fresh flower bouquets during winter time. In summer I mostly stay outside...and then I would probably forget my "poor" houseplants ;-) !!ReplyDelete
LOL... my "in house" plants consist of two African Violets, an Orchid, and one very dry cactus!ReplyDelete
Hi Lisa, thanks for showing your houseplants. Is it too late to do the winter sowing? That is right up your alley, plant and forget it. Or so I am hoping as this is the first year for us.ReplyDelete
I'm going to take pictures of my houseplants today. I won't know the names, but I will put them on my blog tomorrow.I have enjoyed this post.ReplyDelete
Frances, I don't think it is too late for winter sowing. It is still frozen here. I will certainly find out.ReplyDelete
You have some loverly houseplants. I like the pink "blooming" one. The days are getting longer my friend. Now, if the dang fog would just burn off.~~DeeReplyDelete
My green thumb only works outdoors - and there intemittently, but that's another story. Clearly, you suffer from no such affliction.ReplyDelete
The teapot sansevera is a cutie and mine has managed to survive my neglect....but even it can't take my forgetting to water it as often as I forget. I'm not made for in door plants. gailReplyDelete
Lots of leaves for keeping your inside air clean! I have a few plants I brought in and a few that live inside all year long. My ficus tree is over 30 years old and does not like to be moved.ReplyDelete
I always have flowers too. The forced tulips are almost over. Soon I will do forced branches!
I started my Winter Sowing yesterday.

My guys are philodendron and spiders. I managed to kill the Xmas cacti. Which has me feeling bad.ReplyDelete
My staghorn fern died to to lack of light I think... :(ReplyDelete
Yours looks great though!
that's a lot of plants!ReplyDelete
The great thing abut succulents is they thrive on neglect. :)
I would love to have a lot of plants again but the light in my apartment is really bad. So I keep them at work instead.
Gee, for someone who says, 'My house plant care isn't as consistent as it should be. I mean I don't water regularly.' you sure have a lot of plants, and great looking ones! I think so much depends on one's house. In my old house, we had windows in all four directions, including a beautiful bay in the west. So I had lots of plants. Whereas, this house is pretty much a north and south house with one west window (onto a porch) and one east window (over a counter). And no bay windows. So my plants are pretty much in two rooms - one facing south and the other facing north. I have 3 Christmas cactuses (I like that better than cacti!), 1 schefflera, and 4 clivia. That's it. They all look great and are quite large, but I miss the variety and amount I used to have.ReplyDelete

They all look pretty good, Lisa - maybe a little weary of winter but at least there's a little more light after it's mid- February! Bet my Staghorn and yours wish we'd send them somewhere together on vacation.ReplyDelete
