I have had some people ask me to post pictures of my plants so here is some of them. This is just a small portion of all that I have. The last time I counted I had 131. I do have some duplicates but the majority of them are all different. I also have vegetable plants outside plus a bunch of flowering plant. Any one else like plants like I do?

Beautiful. I love plants. I wish I could put them all over my mini but the windows and how the cabin sits, I only get east light in the mornings.

Some plants can survive without a lot of light. I get east and some south sun.

@velvet53 Soon as I can get a couple ceiling hangers in, I plan to get a couple spider plants.

@noni1959 There you go. They are good plants to have around. The big pot in the back of the middle of the picture is a spider. I have never had one that stood up like that before.

Impressive. I'm looking into the species of plants that are safe for pets, I haven't developed the green thumb I want but I'm working on it.

I'm doing my best @velvet53 but I've killed 2 spider plants so far, I want one really bad but I'm not sure what I've done wrong.

@rebelann Don't tell anyone but I have been known to kill a spider plant. You could be over watering it or under watering. It might be in to big of a pot or not a big enough one. If you buy one in a pot that you can see holes in the bottom see if there are roots coming out the holes. If yes than put it into a pot about 2" bigger.

I would love to be where I could make me a NICE rock garden with plants then in another section of a yard make me a tropical fish pond & a bog plant area
A bog filter is a really attractive way to add plants and filter the water in your pond. I found a way to make this a fun addition to my little garden pond. ...

@CookieMonster46 You need a low maintenance plant. Pothos, spiders, philededrons and snake plants are good ones.

I love plants, but you have surpassed me by far on what you have inside your house, I have three. Got lots outside and in the greenhouse though.

Those count too if you want to add them in. I didn't want to go out into the heat that is why I didn't put a number for the ones outside.

@velvet53 no need. I am amazed you have that many in your house though. It is a good thing though. They will keep your air fresh and clean inside your house.

I really shouldn't have that many. Right now I have 14 plants in water sitting on the ledge of my living room window. I don't know where I would put them if I put them into dirt.

@wolfgirl569 I know what you mean. A friend called earlier and asked if I could try to bring 2 plants back to life. I had to tell her no as there is no room here.

A lot of people plant them that way. I can't put anything into the soil so I have to use pots for my vegetables. Most of my house plants are in pots also.
