When I left my lovely old cottage, one of the things I knew I was going to miss was the vast greenery surrounding the house. Trisha suggested that I fill the indoors of the new house with greenery instead I've never been too good with houseplants but always willing to give things ago, so I bought a cheese plant, a prayer plant and a large spider plant (all my plants have to be cat-friendly and these were on the list).
I bought the spider plant as a hanging plant as it had so many babies hanging off it and googled what to do with the babies (spiderettes) it said simply snip them off and plant them in light potting compost and water. Is it really as simple as that? Has anyone else done this? I now have ten more spider plants, I hope they grow
You know what B, you are right on trend here, houseplants are having a revival, especially succulents, I have quite a collection of them, I am just about to put mine out in the garden for a late summer holiday, to give them a shower to dust them off, ready for the long indoor winter to come. You will find money plants very easy, even you would find it hard to kill one off, succulents and cacti thrive on neglect, not total neglect I hasten to add

Very amusing Jazzy my reputation goes before me. I seem to have a new found love, houseplants! glad I'm on trend
I've had to buy bottled water for the plants as we have an inbuilt water softener, it runs through the whole system with something out of the space age attached to the immersion tank, not through a separate little tap. I thought you couldn't drink softened water but apparently this system operates on a low dose, all the same don't want to water my plants with it.
Never thought of Cacti Jazzy, I don't imagine the kitties would even want to go near them anyway. Add those to my list too
B, water buts are definitely the way to go. We have a line of three. I give ours a holiday outside during the summer. I have an Aloe Vera that I managed to forget and left it out all last winter. They were in a sheltered spot, they have been amazing this year with lots of new ? Platelets.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
Yes, I think we'll get a little water but because we are going to grow tropicals in the little garden too. I have several Aloe Veras but I'm going to have to part with those as they are highly toxic to cats. Always grew well like yours Trisha.
