What kind of plants do you have in your house?

Asked by Frenchfry (7559 points ) September 10th, 2010

I might go get some today. Just curious what do you guys like, and do you have a favorite?

I have a few peace lilies, spider plants, yucca type things, and a beautiful orchid in my bedroom. The orchid is my favourite :)

I am notoriously bad at keeping plants alive – however, I have three currently going strong (and have been for almost two years – coinciding interestingly with my getting out of a nasty relationship)... I know one is a poinsetta (which I really should repot, but it’s surviving so I’m happy), another is a spider plant I believe… and the third is green and leafy and lives in my bathroom, so lets call it a bathroom plant! I have a fourth, spiky one, that isn’t enjoying my care so much, but then I’m not that fond if it either!

@iammia Yucca? WHat’s that? I love orchids, expensive! Though not in my budget.

That is so funny. I have one of those on my back porch. Never knew what the name was and got it on clearance.

Aloe is a must have and so easy to grow and handy for treating minor cuts, scrapes and burns. Corn plants can turn a corner of your house into a forest in a matter of months and I have all sorts of topical thingy plants I have no idea what they are called. One thing though if you have kids or pets take caution in what you get as some are pretty poisonous…here is a list for you.

I have a bonsai tree that I’ve had for about 6 years, and a cactus I’ve had for a couple. They’re named Arlo and Randolph.

I have a zz plant that I love, a canela tree that’s not doing so well, a peace lilly (unoriginal but does well in low light), and assorted orchids (mostly phalenopsis and dendrobium).

I have cats… so none.

I have a peace lily and a money plant. I am fond of both even though I never thought I was much of a plant person!

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities I once gave a bonsai tree to a then-SO, because they can last for so long, as a sign of “forever-ness”... he neglected and killed it, and did the same to the relationship, lol!

I have a spider plant, a lipstick plant, three different palms, a rabbit’s foot fern, several varieties of dieffenbachia, a large jade, a philodendron, a sanseviera cylindrica, a stove pipe jade, basil, moses in the bullrushes, African violets, a banana tree, and an amaryllis. I have been a plant person for about two years (and I have two large dogs and a cat). I have grow lights and some great eastern and southern light. Through the seasons, my houseplants move from place to place to take advantage of their best growing habitat.
