    My oldest plant is a cactus that is somewhere between 40 to 50 years old. It was originally my great-grandma's and she gave it to my mom, who in turn gave it to me because she hates it and "it's evil". I have no clue what kind it is, only that its some kind of night bloomer. If I can figure out how to post a picture of it I will.

    These are awesome everyone! I really like how some of these plants have been pasted down in the family. I am hoping to get a piece of a grapevine my grandma has that was given to her by her grandfather someday.

    And of course pictures would be awesome!

    I'll try to post a photo of this aloe vera that was given to me as a kid to help remedy this brown recluse bite I had on my wrist. It was tiny then and now has three full sized plants coming out of a large pot. The pot has fallen over but is being supported by one of the aloe stalks now lol. Its gatta be upwards of 11 years old now.

    Actually, my 10 year old edwardsiana isn't the oldest now that I think of it. The oldest in the house would be my dad's virused Euphorbia. 75 years old. The only plant he kept from when he was in New Mexico.
