Now what do I do with them?

I have a lot of house-plants, some of which I’ve had for many years – decades even. And they have a tendency to grow and multiply. It is often advised to put houseplants outside during the summer to give them a bit of a boost and a change of scene, a little holiday if you like. But the trouble comes when the weather gets cold and you need to bring them in again, because in the meantime of course all the plants that are still inside have grown, been re-potted into larger pots or split into two or more, and taken up all the space. Sometimes the plants outside have grown too. And when they need to come inside again, there’s nowhere to put them. Where on earth am I going to put this?

It is certainly lovely and big. Perhaps one of those extra large flower pots that you see in hotel lobbies and places. I have a few houseplants and one of mine is a Christmas cactus which is now blooming and looks so lovely.
My house plants experience feast or famine. I kill them with kindness....or I kill them with neglect. My Christmas cactus is starting to bloom (it loves my erratic care). My Ivy seems to thrive in spite of all of my attempts and killing the off. I wonder if hubby will remember to wate them while we are living apart .
