I'm not putting any house plants outside too much dust and bugs around here. Hoping to get the porch glassed in some day right now it has corrugated fiberglass blocking the sun. This place doesn't have very many places to put plants. Then in front of the windows they put heat/cool vents. Then when I get the South side all open to the sun my view will be that ugly trailer grandpa put there in the 70s.

Looks like you are getting settled again Vicky, you might have to shift them around until find the best spot. Have you got a veranda, I think your schlumbergera would do better with more light and fresh air. They like it warm , bring back inside for winter.

Wilma's mom's plant really looks sad since the move and it is sitting back there in the dark.

I finally remembered to take of a pic of my plant that is loving it at Marsha's. Here are the rest of my plants and I got a Meyer lemon.

Love your air plants Grant, they are so fun to grow. Your ornamental cactus look good too. I brought a brazillian edelweisse or sinningia leucotricha. A very fun plant if I can keep it alive.

The bees were working the cucumber vines today and as always the garlic chive flowers they love them.

The best looking one is still the one living at Marsha's place. It is way too big to bring here til I get the sun porch fixed up. Or the kitchen fixed so I can get all the food prep stuff out of the dinning room. Even then the stupid heat/cool vents are right in front of the windows so need vent deflectors.

My houseplants are hanging in Some stll look really sad from the move. Have food plants under a grow light. My grape ivy think that's it's name is growing like crazy. The spider looks like crap all the tips are dry and it's not a deep green like my friend Deb's was and hers is on the front porch outside.

But I am all excited as we just counted 10 bees on the garlic chives. I had only seen one since I moved here in May.

Keryn your orchid is beautiful!  And Grand love your blooming cacti!  Air plants are cool looking too.  I have been neglecting my poor plants as I have been dealing with my sick elderly parents in another state, but things are settling down and hopefully I can get back to gardening!
