Houseplant Move In 2011
The jungle has returned! I finished moving all my houseplants inside for the winter! It only took two weeks of slowly dragging everything upstairs and even more slowly finding a spot for everything to be tucked into. So far only one plant is whining horribly (Ruttya fruticosa) and I’m not at all shocked about that. I’m betting it’ll leaf out again in a few weeks. Anyways, here is a shot of my bedroom now that the 16″ bamboo (that stands about 8′ tall), 20″ epipihyllum (that’s about 36″ wide from end to end), 4′ tall Iochroma, and a smattering of other smaller plants, are crammed into it.
The jungle has also overwhelmed the front window. Its 12′ across and faces east so it’s generally a great spot for my plants. As you can see I’ve got one or two plants in front of it… I’m hoping some of them will go dormant so I can move them to the basement and let a little more air circulate.
My passion vine doesn’t completely hate life yet…it had two blooms open today! I think the rest are going to abort but at least these ones were far enough along for me to enjoy! And on a side note, you guys should go vote for your favorite houseplants at Plants Are The Strangest People
