Another Agave sits beneath our new palm. We’ll have small palms available this spring. The white pot on the typing table holds a porcupine tomato (Solanum pyracanthum) — we’re trying to keep it going through the winter…
Bird of Paradise asks for so little, and in return gives so much. Ours hasn’t bloomed yet but we’re hopeful this spring will bring a bloom! Button fern is low-light and seems more adaptable to low humidity for a fern.
Firesticks in the foreground really color up with new growth in winter. Red-flowering begonia blooms through the winter. Both prefer to run dry, so they’re a dream for negligent houseplant keepers.
This jade is about 6 years old, as is the ‘Kissho Kahn’ Agave. The fiddle-leaf fig is a new addition and so far seems super easy to grow. We’ll have small starts available this spring!
Our spotted leopard continues to grow happily in the same pot after 4 years, and Doreanthus ‘Mezoo Trailing Red’ is still growing succulently in our favorite armadillo pot in a sunny window.
Variegated and miniature Mother-in-law’s tongue plants grow in gorgeous hombre-glazed ceramic pots alongside this ‘Hope’ philodendron. None of these plants require much light or moisture.
Agave ‘Sharkskin Shoes’ requires little care and adapts to most light conditions. This guy has wintered indoors for 3 years now.
A couple more Mother-in-law’s tongue plants, and they grow happily along with our pothos plant in a dark corner of the kitchen.
This huge airplane plant softens the edge of the bookcase and really makes the sunroom seem like an outdoor garden.
This shefflera sits off the floor in a bright, sunny window in our vintage rolling laundry cart.
Tolerant of very low light conditions, Algerian ivy has big, bold dark green leaves and dark red-brown stems.
