It's feeling like fall outside so Pretty and I have brought in the houseplants we've got room to keep in the house this winter. Do you live in a country where you have to bring plants in when it starts getting too cold for them to stay outside? Do you have houseplants? What kind do you own? Some of my houseplants. Photo is mine.

We had to leave the lemongrass outside this year as well as one of the taro plants. We just don't have room for them all inside.

@wolfgirl569 If we put the taro into the ground, it might come back. It gets too cold for the lemongrass to live outside.

It feels like Fall here, too. If I had any houseplants, I suppose I'd bring them in.

@xander6464 Oh, so your that kind of barbarian... I have to have plants around or it doesn't feel like "home" to me. I like messing with them inside during the winter.

Oh, I see... Some of my plants can be eaten... I just don't like the taste of taro. The oxalis is good, though.

@prashu228 In that photo, all the way to the left and the very back is a taro plant. In the picture I've added here is the oxalis. The plant with some green leaves and some purple leaves shaped like shamrocks. Some of my plants. Photo is mine.

I have green striped bamboo growing in the yard. It's an evergreen here. And the second one we call Devil's Ivy and I have a big pot of it, too.

@DaddyEvil Ivy can climb walls and make it climb into the shape of a shed in the yard, which can be used to shade

@zhangxueying That's true, but Devil's Ivy won't live if it gets too cold outside. And you shouldn't let ivy climb on a house or shed. The little roots it uses to climb the walls damage them.

We have cats, so personally, keeping a house plant is a bad idea. Secondly, we do have some plants that can't handle the rare freezes and cold nights.

Its funny that you brought houseplants in yesterday, my hubby took one out yesterday. While he was gone to put on his training courses, I was shopping. I wanted some small mums for the tables for the shower and then I will give them away as prizes for some of the games. I didn't think that I would find any as nobody has any since Thanksgiving last weekend, but I found a store that had some decent ones. I brought them home and kind of left them in the kitchen and then went back out shopping. When my hubby got home, I still wasn't back, so he put down 3 garbage bags and put the 6 pots on them. But the area in front of that window seemed crowded, so he took the poor sad excuse of a poinsetta outside, its days are numbered. Your coleus flower in the front will do well inside. I had one that grew taller then I stand one winter. We nick named him Tiny.

You should have seen that coleus before we took him outside last spring. He was about 6 cm tall and looked spindly as all get out. He's been throwing fits about being brought back into the house. He's thrown three leaves off in two days.

@DaddyEvil Mine did that during the first month that I brought him in and it got bad because I remember thinking that he would die, then he grew and he grew and I told my hubby to call me Jack cuz I had a beanstalk growing up to the ceiling.

@Juliaacv That's funny! I hope ours doesn't die. He's the only plant we have that belongs to Pretty. She picked him out because his color is so striking.

I see... Some of my plants LOVE being outside until the colder temps start. One of them is throwing a temper tantrum because it doesn't like it inside very well. It's throwing leaves at us.

I brought inside my chili peppers, those I had still in pots... can you believe that there are mushrooms growing in the pots? I took photos, I have to transfer the photos to my computer.

Oh, wow! Do you know if the mushrooms are edible? We had some mushrooms that sprouted in the bell pepper planters but the squirrels ate them as soon as they sprouted. The cold killed our bell pepper plants but we harvested a half dozen green peppers from them this morning. I'd like to see the mushrooms when you get the photos transferred, please.

@DaddyEvil Those mushrooms are surely not toxic, but usually tasteless, or slightly hallucinogen. I will surly post a photo of those mushrooms, they are pretty. Today I go out and check if they also are in the garden.

This time I have brought few of my plants indoors to save them from rain. The city where I live does not get extreme temperatures and the weather stays pleasant throughout the year. So plants stay happy indoors and outdoors.. You have a good collection of plants there

@Hanbinandaeyo People here bring me their plants when the plants get sick or look like they're dying to see if I can help them. (Some people claim I have green thumbs starting at my shoulders. ) After I give the healthy plants back I also explain what I think might have been the problem with them and hope the people don't kill them after I leave.

@Vree0937 Ants sleep from time it starts getting cold here until it gets warm in the spring. (I dust a powder using a makeup brush to kill the ants and bugs that come into my house. The powder is Diatomaceous earth. It is a kind of chalk that kills bugs when they get it on them.) It kills any type of bug.

Thank you. Let me think... The tall one in the top left is an Elephant's ear, the one beside it is a pothos plant, in front of it is an ivy, the white pot has I don't remember it's name and the red pot has a croton in it. The one in front is a coleus plant.
