A brief houseplant tour – early 2017

A tour of my modest collection of houseplants so I can record and chronicle their growth.

Peace lilies:

Pilea depressa (baby’s tears) – newest addition. For such a pretty plant, it has some sad names!

My two succulents: have very little hope for these as I don’t yet know how to care for these. They don’t like me either.

Experiment with succulent propagation:

Karpooravalli, also known as Bishop’s weed. Leaves have such a heady fragrance:

Impatiens:

Christmas cactus, I won this plant at a raffle at work. I usually never win at these things:

And this Christmas cactus actually bloomed in June, exquisite flowers.

Purple velvet, much more pretty than it looks here in this terrible lighting:
