Small trees in a bedroom

I’ve written about the house-sit where there were over 70 potted plants within the house. It was a bit of a challenge to be sure to water all of them without missing any. It was also important not to over-water any of them, or let the small ones dry out too much so it was all a bit of a challenge. Two of the largest pots were in the main bedroom and you can see them in the photo. You can also see the rough wooden chest between the plants. There were quite a few of these rough items of furniture in the house.

@JudyEv I love those trees but I would not countenance having them in my bedroom in a country prone to small, venomous spiders, etc.I'm also a little alarmed at the toilet arrangements in that bedroom - I'm hoping that a solid door has been cut out of the photo and that in reality it does exist. No matter how well acquainted I might be with the person I share a bed with, I see no need to have them watching while I'm 'at stool'.Please tell me there's a door. I'm not a prude, I'd just rather not see or be seen.

I didn't even notice the toilet until you mentioned it.

There is a very solid door so please be at ease - so to speak.

@BarBaraPrz I didn't notice the toilet either. I had to go back and look at the photo again.

Oh my gosh 70 plants I’d for sure kill them all . These look lovely in that room. Very comfy!

@JudyEv that is true . My mom is going to take a poinsettia off me that the cat is killing.

I was pleased we were only there about ten days. Most plants could probably survive a bit of neglect for that period of time.

@shaggin Some cats seem to love to destroy plants.

I would never prefer Plants or Trees in the Bedroom. That too such bigs! Individual preference could be one thing but I would not go for such a personal choice. On a whole, I think that you are managing the plants quite well.

@JudyEv And as per Vaastu Shastra(I am not sure of its English translation), such an arrangement might be even more unfavorable for the inhabitants of the house. I am not too much into that, but somehow a Tree - even small inside the bedroom feels a bit odd.

I did get a bit of a shock to see these small trees in the bedroom.

No, no bugs unless they came out at night while we were asleep.

I may have a plant pot or two in my room, a tree would be too much of a hassle.

@JudyEv I was wondering why they do not have indoor air purifiers. We have one in our hall but hundreds in the garden planted in rows in garden beds - SANSEVIERIA

@allknowing I think there might have been a couple of purifiers but I don't like the smell of them normally.

It is very light in the room. There is a huge window on the left.

I wish there were enough light in my home to allow me to grow plants all over but at least I have a bamboo, a snake plant and a slow growing pine sapling. So far Tuffy hasn't demolished those I have the sapling in the kitchen window that faces northeast so there isn't a lot of light for it but it seems to be doing ok.

I wish I could find some plants I wasn’t allergic to. They’re supposed to freshen the air naturally.

That's what this lass says. However, I know they used to remove flowers at night from hospital wards because they used up the oxygen or somesuch. Not very logical but there was some reason they'd take them all out.

That sounds like a lot of responsibility to have that many potted plants to care for in that house. Don't know if I'd want them in my bedroom but the old wooden chest is quite nice. I like old furniture

They had a lot of heavy wooden furniture. Some of it looked home-made.

My son has a ficus tree, but it’s not in the bedroom. Finicky tree.

I didn't know they were finicky. You might be right as this one dropped a leaf the last day we were there. I hid it in the bin!

It's nice seeing what other people choose and how they live. We've picked up some good ideas at the various house-sits.

And ours would be too dark. If I open up the curtains, even if just in the daytime, I think people going past could see in.

They must love their greenery. I have had a tree indoors a time or two...the problem at least with the ones I had, is that they would dry out and drop their leaves.

One of these dropped a leaf so I dropped everything and rushed off to give it some water.
