I have grown pineapple, aloe vera, basil, stevia, and even sweet potatoes out there. Right now I am just taking care of some orchids I got for my birthday. Once I get a house, it is my goal to have a fruit and vegetable garden. I am really looking forward to it!

so much, I kept them all on my bathroom window sill where they get sun and water and love! Am I the only one who names their plants? They certainly feel like my friends/ pets an I talk to them all the time! Maybe I'm a crazy plant lady haha today I bought a gorgeous Cyclamen and...
but my boyfriends but I'm the one that feeds them and cleans them and makes them survive. they're very much like an infant so needy of your time but when i watch them grow from a seed to a beautiful flowering adult plant it gives me a sense of accomplishment. i look at it and...
