I like big house plants. I cannot lie. I love houseplants so when Nester had a planty linky party I had to join.
This is my newest addition. This is so large it had to be repotted. I looked around for large pot and the prices were astronomical. So , I had a brain storm and repotted this in a shiny metal garbage can. To tell you the truth this almost wasn't large enough. This turned out to be a cheaper solution. More about the repotting here and what it looked like when I received it.
Above is my first large plant, I ever grew. Don't I sound like a proud parent. It is a split leaf Philodendron. My kids once de-leafed it. I wasn't a happy Mommy. They use to call it the plant with the eyes. The kids thought the split in the leaves looked like eyes.
Above is a prayer plant at night the leaves close up. This also has blooms.
See the spikes. Those are the blooms. I also have a hoya that is blooming.The blooms almost look fake.
I have been extremely lucky to be gifted or purchased distressed plants. A lot of my stands and pots have been thrifted.
