House plant gallery

Well we've got a garden gallery but it always feels odd adding house plant photos to that so maybe we need a separate thread for our indoor plants?

Maybe I'll start it off with a tillandsia, which after weeks of slowly changing colour and growing a tall flower spike is now finally flowering. I think the hot, muggy weather recently has really helped it. Not a spectacular flower after all that wait though sadly.

    I bought a plant last year and took a couple of cuttings. The original plant died due to some fungal problem that rotted all the stems but the cuttings are thriving. They look great with the light shining through them today.


    I also dragged some plants outside to have a wash off in the rain and found this one may need to be repotted. :#  The roots completely filled the saucer underneath and must have been lifting the pot up with them without me noticing.

    My ficus benjamina is outside for the summer in a shaded spot.  It'll be enjoying the rain today.   Happen I should put her rubbery mate otside too....   See you later.

    This first Alocasia photo was taken in winter indoors, but the semi-outdoor atrium (built by original builder of house as an aviary) in the second photo is where all my Alocasias live the rest of the year.  It is closed in on 4 sides with 1/3 of the ceiling open, covered with mesh garden screening.  They love it out there because Texas summer heat is simply too much for them fully outdoors. 
    This Sanseveria gets moved from my lounge/dining room inside (right by the atrium window) to the same location.  It thrives in both settings: 
    This Schefflera arbicola I've had for about 3 years now and it also thrives better in the semi-outdoor atrium.  It's about 3' tall now.

    This haworthia flower spike is just getting silly now. It's over a metre tall and still going.

    @PeggyTX that looks like a very happy home for plants.  Sansevaria is called Mother-in-Law's tongue over here..........

    @wild edges that is indeed an entertaining plant. 

    I have recently moved an asparagus fern from the annex to the living room where it gets earlier light, tho still indirect, and more frequent attention and it has thrown out 3 long new stems, one of which is dying to ambush us when we pass.  


    Ficus Benjamina has grown over the summer and is now too big for our shower room so is in the east facing window of the living room. 


    Might have to put her elastica pal in the south facing window as he too has grown a bit big for his place on the landing and I don't think I can cope with the bleeding if I prune him.

    I've had to banish hibiscus to the shower as she's being invaded by aphids again and needs regular blasts.  Happens every autumn when I bring her back in.
