Time for the House Plants to Shine

Our Begonia House Plant

The Most Beautiful Begonia

I hate to say it, but if I was responsible for our house plants, they’d all be dead. I may turn them occasionally when I think they’re growing into the sun too much or repot them. Other than that I do nothing.

Now that our outside garden is getting ready for Fall/Winter it’s time for our indoor garden to shine. Since this is where we’ll be hiding for the next six months, we’re happy to have the green and beauty in the house to keep us sane.

Not only do we have the pictured Begonia but we have many Aloe, African Violet, Christmas Cactus, Wandering Jew, Spider Plant, Cacti and a couple random nameless plants. I got most of these plants for free by taking a small cutting from another plant, including the Begonia — we took a cutting from one of my mom’s plants. This is a great and inexpensive way to start a house plant collection.

Some time before our next big freeze I need to dig up the Aeonium in the outside garden and find a spot in our tiny house. They’ll be a nice addition to our indoor winter garden.
