Anyone into growing plants at all, house plants or plants in a garden? If so, what do you have? We have a hobby farm and on it we have potatoes, radishes, squashes, pumpkins, carrots, apples, rhubarb, peas, beans, peppers, and corn. Inside we have a fiscus tree, and an asparagus fern. Anyone else here like to grow plants and if so, got any tips you'd like to share with the rest of the world?
I just grow houseplants and potatoes, because, well, I like potatoes. But I'm not really an expert, so I'll be quiet now.
I have cacti. But they pretty much look after themselves LOL.
I also have plants in my aquarium...again they look after themselves, unless my fish do a bit of secret gardening
I like to grow cucumbers in a small garden I have outside. last year I had some pretty big cucumbers come out of it, and I was happy with that. What I want to do this year or next year is have a bigger garden where I can sell some of the crop to the local garden-market.
I grow houseplants at work, so I'm tired of them by the time I get home, and therefore I have none.
I do enough watering and trimming there.
I have a couple houseplants at my place. But I am not very good at taking care of them. I have a schefflera plant that I got from my grandfather and I love it, but it had root rot for a while because I wasn't taking good care of it and it was in a pot that didn't drain properly. I repotted it and hopefully it will come back strong. I really want to get some more plants, but I think I should get better at taking care of them first. Maybe read a book or two. I also think bonsai plants are really interesting, though I'm not sure I have the patience or skill necessary to keep one. Maybe someday
the only flower I have planted is asphodel. It was a not bad exeprience, hehe. But a lot of preparing job was done by my father. hehe.
After that i have not planted anything more. But would like to have one try sometime in the future. maybe a tree.
Mainly into landscaping with plants, I have two yards to keep up. one is 2.5 acres Highly landscaped, from a previous Master gardener couple. and the other yard is 6 acres of a 75 year old home with lots of grass, but a big herb garden and quite a few friut trees spread around too.
Today I got, 4 thundercloud purple plums, 7 lavender crepe Myrtles, 6 red crepe myrtles, 4 formosa azaleas, 2 kosha dogwoods, and 2 snow cherrys., so I have to get busy getting the soil preped and get them in the ground next wednesday when I am off. Hope the weather holds nice after Earnesto's rain. I'm gonna rent a tractor with a scoop, to make quick work of all these, but what a great walking grove it will be!
i like sunflower caz it is very nice...

We also have a kitchen garden but I dont know what is being grown there!!!
Right now I don't have my own yard, but I have some cacti, basil, and mums growing inside my house. Usually the only kind of house plant I can keep is cacti, so let's see how long my other plants will actually stay alive.
I sort of like cacti. They're a bit stranger than most houseplants. But Ifind them more interesting.
i like growing(or trying to grow) vegetables
hmm.. we did try to grow tomatoes at the kitchen window once, but the biggest that sprouted was about 3/4cm in diameter and sour as hell ..after that i tried growing bean sprouts but they climbed up and wound around the bird cages that my dad has and the birds pecked them away.. though i managed to harvest one pod
i wonder if the requirements for growing plants are really strict or something..
i grow plant, but aquastic plant, they are nice
i have Glennis which has beautiful colorful leaves in the summer; since absence of experience, not bring it inside of my house when the weather turned cold, the leaves fell a lot; hope to see it alive next spring
