    Show your Houseplants! DUW

    Post some pictures of your plants besides CP's that you grow! Especially if you have more unusual and rare specimens!

    Here are some of mine, forgive my poor photography skills

    Seedgrown Lemon tree


    Heartleaf Philodendron - - Umm desk is a bit messy from doing Calculus work... really like this plant a lot easier than the more common pothos


    Pothos - I like this plant but it doesn't like me... Also Pictured Anthurium sp. and Philodendron Orange Prince


    Streptocarpus - It was huge so I chopped it!


    Begonia 'Bonfire' - begonias are perhaps my favourite 'regular' plants, I also chopped it


    Succulent NOID


    Goldfish Plant - got huge over my vacations


    Alocasia Amazonica


    Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana - These are from cuttings from a rare cultivar thats a lot nicer than those you see during Xmas


    Umbrella Plant - Its huge compared to whenI bought it in Ikea four years ago it was proabably three inches tall.


    Maidenhair fern - Lots of new fronds love this plant


    Kalanchoe 'Magic bells'


    Mimosa Pudica & Begonia Rex (although some other site says its a fibrous begonia)


    Christmas cactus - flower buds already appearing


    Ivy - Larger Variety, I had found the scientific name but forgot it...


    Oxalis Triagularis also called atropurpurea coming back from dormancy


    Enjoy show me yours!

    OMG how do you get your alocasia to have more than 1 leaf? mine only has one and it keeps trying to die on me! Pics will come shortly once it's sun-up again...

    Thez_yo - hmm it gets bright light, and it doesn't get too cold, and I keep the meda moist, they really like wet feet, but make sure you have an airy mix. They also go dormant in cold weather.

    I used regular potting mix (like miracle grow stuff) mixed one on one with perlite - that airy enough? Last time I tried regular potting mix straight up and kept it wet and it started rotting :O...so if I let it be more damp with this new mix it should do good?

    Well I'm not sure... I'd just tell you not to let it dry out.

    Hmm...ok, I guess I'll go to water it now. I've got seedgrown sapote trees, seedgrown tamarind trees, some NOID succulents, a couple bromeliads, handful of tillies and a fern hiding around too. I just had a cacao tree die on me which is really sad but I guess I'll live...but omg . I wish the sun were out so I could take pics already..

    Nice!

    I have several smaller Alocasias / mini Caladiums in my Anole vivarium and they come and go with the dryness of the soil. If it's real wet they grow if I let it dry out too long they die back to the tuber sometimes for a year or more then when it's just right they come back with a new crop of leaves.

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.
