So, who here likes to grow plants?

I have a few plants, a cactus and a spider plant smile

I also used to grow bonsai trees, I had a nice Hawaiian Umbrella tree which I turned into a bonsai, but it started to turn black and eventually it just died. I suppose it wasn't cared for well enough. I also had four Wisteria plants that I grew from seed, they died as well sadblauw......but in the spring I'll try to grow some more smile

How about everyone else?
Wolf, Siiw, I know you both like plants grin

How'd I know you were the starter of this topic? ^^

Oh yes, I love plants. To be more specific, I love BIG plants. It's really cool to see such a little thing be raised to become a giant... As you can tell, I like planting trees and things like that. ^^

I used to take care of some plants, bushes and whatnot when I lived in a farm.

Now I'm growing a garden in the backyard, I want to see the seeds develop into plants and flowers from the begging.

I also take care of the orchids in the house and have an anthurium called Anthonium which is the pal who listens to me while I watch the sunset.

I like to grow plants siiw I have mostly cactus plants right now, because i go away from my apartment quite often. My hawaiian umbrella tree got yellow leaves, and the new leaves got smaller and smaller, until it died. I also grow bulbs, and the zamioculcas plant likes my apartment.

*Siiw looks forward to the summer when she can grow summer flowers again...violets in pots, morning glory all the way around my window, beautiful lilies, marigolds and potted roses...*daydreams*

And all my herbs, mint, thyme, rosemary, lemon balm, etc...

I've had a money plant (and my mother said money doesn't grow on trees... hah) for over ten years now.

If forget to water plants regularly, so it's a good thing to have. Like cacti they can survive without water for sometime.

The only plant i have is a venus flytrap. This plant seems to be more than enough for me, as it is apparantly a tricky plant to grow because of it requiring alot of watering and high humidity and also need to hibernate once a year. You also should feed it with a insect now and then, but that is not so bad as i get to watch it eat

I would never have bought this plant myself, but i have to take care of it, as my mom bought it for me.

My mom on the other hand has loads of plants, and i occasionaly water them too...

The venus flytrap goes into hibernation in winter, but if it was bought in winter, it should just be allowed to grow. It should never be allowed to flower, because it will use up all the plant's energy.

Got any pictures? Maybe we can identify them smile

I also had a venus fly trap, but I didn't keep the soil moist enough, and it died shortly after I got it.

I tried to grow a salvia plant. It was dead the day after I planted it.

This link is for Bruno, remember the talk we had about garden plants which would thrive in Brazil?

I keep an aloe plant in the house. I also tried a bamboo plant before, but that really didn't work out for me. It is now dead. I didn't water it enough. sadblauw

In the summer I love to grow Sweet Peas in the garden, I love them. All the colours and stuff, beautiful!

One year I tried to grow the sweet peas from seeds. It kind of worked, but they were a bit thin. eh
