Indoor Plants
    #366736 - 08/04/01 05:32 PM (19 years, 6 months ago)

Hello - I recently came to the realization that there are NO plants in my house, i suppose its cause the other people who live here dont dig plants, but I definatly do and I've decided to do something about it!

Besides Ethneogens (which will also join the party), what kind of indoor plants should I look into taking in? I'd say the lighting in my house isn't great, but regarding plant-care, I'd be all over it... temperatures I'd also say are fairly 'average' for a home, maybe a bit on the cooler side.

open to any suggestions :)


The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.

Dracenas are good for an upright plant. Janet Cragii do well in low light. Fragrens and warnikii do well in higher light. Stay away from palms- too expensive and don't last unless they have the perfect environment.
Pothos are great for smaller "vine" type plant.
Janet craig compactas are geometrically aethetic.
Crotons are tropical looking but need high light. Bromeliads are beautifully colored but their flowers only last up to six months.
Mitchiko "corn" plants do well in medium light.

When in doubt- don't water.
After a while you'll begin to realize just how little water most houseplants require.

On the non-entheogen front, there are loads. Personally my favourites are Yukkas and Rubber plants as they get pretty big and look interesting. There are also a lot of very intersting ferns and small palms. Also think about Bonsai trees, some of the larger indoor bonsai's are stunning.
You could also go for some other intersting plants such a minature bannana or citrus trees, but these usually need quite a lot of light, but will do well by a southerly facing window (Or northerly is you're in the southern hemisphere).

Anyway, just some ideas...

Take care
