For the last several years, I've been trying to bring more live plants into my home.
I first bought a wee Mother Fern and then a Pathos.
I am very good at growing Pathos. They're easy.
Lindsay has take some cuttings from mine and given me two cuttings from hers. They were tiny when she gave them to me and they are growing full and tall. Its time for them to be transplanted.
She also gave me a ficus. I love ficus and this one is really growing too. It likes the light in my house. I need to transplant it, but I'm afraid to shock it and kill it.
As for my fern...It was growing beautifully and two summers ago I had it out on my deck. It was full and lovely, until a sweet little girl pulled off almost all of the fern fronds! It hasn't been the same since.
At times it does really well, growing and getting full and then other times, its sparse. I'm not sure why.
Obviously, I need some more plants. I don't have the space for a lot in one area, like Lindsay has in her dining room. But I want to continue to have oxygen producing, stale air filtering plants in the house. They're pretty and useful, too.
Do you have houseplants? What kind is your favorite? Any helpful hints on my fern?
