I really like the sansevieria.


However, my kitchen window (and on top of the dryer, in the kitchen) - is taken up by plants now. Not just the ones you have seen. How much light does that one need? Because I have some room in my living room for a few, once we get the living room properly set up. But the living room doesn't provide a lot of light - west facing.


Does a wood stove not do well with having plants? Makes it too hot ?

All of those plants tolerate poor light. They do better with more light, but not direct sun. They are mostly rainforest floor plants used to filtered sunlight, and have mostly been houseplants since Victorian times. People have passed them back and forth as cuttings for ages.


The woodstove problem is extreme dryness combined with high daytime temperatures and very low night time temps. Poor things dehydrate on top while the roots rot. I gave up. I may begin again though, you're inspiring me, because I really liked having a ton of plants.

It is! Quite common, easy to find. Someone you know likely has one and can give you cuttings.

Jade plants also grow well in low light, but really take off and flower if they have lots of light. They can tolerate being outdoors in summer, on a balcony or porch.

It's just so nice to have them around the house. I love them.



And I bought a few marcrame plant hangers -- that I want to hang up in front of the living room window - which I think will look very nice. (Different lengths)





Cool, so maybe I can look into the sansevieria as something on a shelf in front of the window.


Something like this would be nice:



But I'm not sure how it would do, with the cats

Excellent. Thank you! I like the sounds of that.

Worst case scenario.. I can't have the plant shelf due to cats. But can hang some. And then install a shelf on the wall.. to the right of the window for some

With plants, it depends on the cats. My cats mostly left plants alone, with a rare instance of knocking one over. You have to know what your own cat is likely to do.

Hanging them is nice, but even if they get knocked down, it's usually a survivable incident.

In one apartment I had I put up glass shelves in front of one window. Like this, only not so tidy:

Tempered glass is safe and cheap, and angle supports don't cost much.

Wall farms are cool. Would definitely try that if I lived in a condo.

^maybe the image didn't work because of the 's' in http in your quote?


Neat though. That's quite nice looking




Trimmed a bit off of borealis today. Looking to see what kind of new growth will sprout.

Coincidentally, that's what I've named the poison ivy around the yard.
