    default Our Indoor Plants

    Post by Joy on Tue 13 Oct 2009, 9:14 pm

    While our indoor plants aren't, strictly speaking, patio plants, they still should be mentioned with them. Often an indoor plant will end up on one of the patios, where they always seem to do better. This is despite the indoor area, available for plants, is light & airy with no strong, harsh direct sun. Guess some just like to rough it outdoors.  :lol: Most of our succulents started off indoors & seemed quite happy there but after being outside for a while they have grown & grown & grown................................

    The plants that do seem to be quite happy inside are a dracaena fragrans massangeana ~ Happy Plant, a few dracaena sanderiana ~ Lucky Bamboo, spathiphyllum ~ Madonna or Peace lily, maidenhair fern on a rock, yucca elephantipes, a small sanseviera stuckyi, zamioculcas zamiifolia ~ Zanzibar Gem or ZZ Plant, two phalaenopsis orchids & two cymbidium orchids.

    An interior shot of our loungeroom  area taken over three years ago. Things aren't quite the same now with some different plants & the ones still there being much bigger. Dracaena sanderiana ~ Lucky Bamboo. ~~   Dracaena fragrans massangeana ~ Happy Plant & yucca elephantipes.

    Recent pics taken of our spathiphyllum, both taken early November. I must get some more recent ones as it now has eight flowers & buds. This is the most it has ever had.

    Oh, it is a great plant & there is an added bonus to having one, as they are, also, an air-cleaning plant!! :cheers:

    Here is a pic I took a couple of days ago. It just seems to be popping out more & more flowers.

    The spathiphyllum has started its spring flowering. There is a second flower starting to appear. It hidden in the foliage. :smile:

    Some close ups of the little friend which provides much humidity for the spathiphyllum. It was the bird's nest fern on a rock but the fern eventually died a few months ago. I decided to keep the rock wet as it had some moss growing & see what happened. Lo & behold, a maidenhair fern started growing. Wonderful. :apgw: :dance010:

    The previous seven spathiphyllum flowers are now finished, or rather when they had turned green it was time to cut them off. There were three new flowers appearing, too. This is the first time this plant has had two lots of flowers.

    Our maidenhair fern on a rock has grown quite considerably since the last pics were taken. It definitely seems at home on the rock. I just have to remember to keep watering the rock. :whistle:

    An image, taken today, of our wonderful old spathiphyllum, which desperately needs repotting. I am not game to do this as there is so much of it. :O With it is the maidenhair fern on a rock &, hiding beside it, is the small dracaena sanderiana "Lucky Bamboo" which has grown quite a bit since we were given it.

    The maidenhair fern on a rock is really flourishing. It has even had its own spore fronds so there may even be more maidenhair ferns popping up somewhere is the loungeroom.

    The dracaena sanderiana "Lucky Bamboo" cuttings are still looking good.

    The spathiphyllum is looking so good. Am too scared to repot it though, even if it must need it desperately.

    Repotted the indoor yucca elephantipes today. It was growing too tall for its previous pot, even though it still had plenty of room for its roots in the old pot. Poor thing has quite a curve in its stem as it reaches for the light.

    Not all sure it is an elephantipes as it does look more like a yucca recurvata.

    The spathiphyllum seems to have benefitted from having a few of its more battered leaves cut off. May have to cut some more off.
