Plant Hoard Tour

I totally hoard house plants. They’re taking over. I absolutely love houseplants. The more, the merrier! I figured while I wait for my pre-frement to warm up (there’s going to be a LOT of bread going on today! brace yourself!)

I would show you around. I’ve tried to identify them to the best of my ability.

i can haz christmas?????

Obviously, there’s my Christmas Cactus, pictured as it is, this moment. Clearly, it needs a calender.

This is a succulent that at one point was very neat and tidy and threw flowers up at me and then it turned into this…I don’t really love pruning my houseplants, I like them a little wild, so I let it be

My mother in law’s tongue, which in no way represents my future mother in law, aside from being lovely.

You might recognize it better with flowers, but I trimmed them off when they got wispy.

This one came to me from a grocery store for a dollar. It was originally in the world’s smallest pot, but it obviously appreciates the space

wpid-20140210_073814.jpgaccording to the pot, it is a “crassula species,” how specific.

The fanfare is a leggy mess, I am not going to lie. That plant lost it’s damn mind. All of the other windowsill succulents are fine, but that one is a brat. I’ve tried moving him, pruning him and all he wants to do is be an idiot.

That aloe vera is probably the second oldest plant I own, the oldest is a pothos, which is not pictured, but still lives, I promise. I have abused that poor aloe vera, left it in the sun, over watered it, et cetera, et cetera, but it always comes back and even has a pup. I don’t think it’s overly fond of the cold windowsill, but unfortunately that’s some of the best sun we have right now.
