Plants, Flowers, n' Stuff
« on: April 06, 2017, 10:55:26 pm »
So I've been beginning to have this mild hobby of raising plants!
More specifically - Succulents! They're so easy to take care of and such gorgeous plants!
I also just love flowers and plants in general, I love going to the local Home Depot and walking through the nursery and seeing all of the cool varieties they carry. You never realize how many there are until you walk through the abundant aisles of plants! So many colors and shapes and OOOH! I just love them!

Do any of ya'll raise plants/flowers?
Or do you just have a favorite plant?
:)

I really like flowers, when I grow up and have my own place to live I'll probably have flowers all over the place. I'd like to have a bunch of succulents, they're really pretty!

Haha Aloe Vera are considered weeds over here, but I'm not that interested in plants-

I did want to grow a prickly pear at some point when I was researching about Bearded Dragons

I have a succulent in my window! It's HUUUUUUUUGE, but unfortunately I don't know what kind it is. It used to be only 1 inch tall, and now it's over 13"!

Lol that's funny! Aloe is  really popular here but it's not really my favorite. It's just Aloe -3- lol.
One of my succulents passed away a couple days ago ;-; I'm really sad cause I had it in a really nice arrangement! Thankfully the others are still thriving, I guess I'll have to go get a new one to fill in the dead space though.

I've tried keeping plants, but my cats always use them as litter boxes or my neighbor's giant dog sits on them. Hopefully I'll be able to eventually.
I have a soft spot for all sorts of nature on pacific islands, but I really love frangipani.
Lilacs are a close second. I used to live in a house up on a big hill, and the driveway passed through a small forest of lilacs. They only bloomed around my birthday, so I remember always looking forward to that when I was young.

I've tried keeping plants but I always end up killing them. I love palm trees though. We can't grow them up here, it's too cold but I love seeing them when I go down south

You should try Succulents Mystic! They're super easy! Just need a pot, some succulent soil, and a spray bottle of water! I water mine every like 4 days and they're doing great! They're super cheap too, each plant is about $3 and a small bag of soil is $4.

I bought a little kit thing at a store and I'm trying to grow a little bonsia tree. So far it's going good! There's a cute little sprout that looks healthy and strong

Yah, succulents are pretty much the only thing I can keep alive. I have a really cute little adromischus that has been growing slowly but steadily, and a tiny elephant bush.

For non-succulents, I have some bromeliads, including a medusa's head (so called because of the leaves, which look like the snakes on a gorgon's head). Oh, and some lucky bamboo.

Edit: Group photo!!!!

Sorry lucky bamboo no photo for you

Brevity is the soul of wit (and signatures), and thus, I will be keeping this on the short side, except I guess it's kind of long now....

I really like plants but they always seem to die on me ;n;
Even the succulents!
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Anybody have any recommendations of species that are super hardy?

I'm growing some fishhook barrel cacti
They're still just seeds so it'll be a few months until they turn into something

Huh. When I joined this forum (today), I was totally not expecting to find people as plant crazed as I am. My personal faves are lobelia cardinalis "Queen Victoria", and someday Id like to own a passiflora caerulea aka blue passionflower, because it looks so awesome.

I've been reading through this, and I've been wondering, does anyone have any cool underwater plants? Like, in a fish tank or something?

I just got these bad boys
Had to remove a glued on flower on the tall one
Who the fuck glues flowers on a cactus
This is just temporary until I get a bigger pot to start a garden
I really wish stores took better care of them too

I call the one on the left, get down with the thiccness
And the tall one is Celine Dion (I dunno why)
(they are by a window I just took them aside to take a pic)
