    I have 2 African violets, 1 spider plant, 1 philodendron,1 shamrock plant, 2 difenbacias,1 Jack in the Pulpit and a planter from my daughter's funeral that has 3-4 different plants in it.
    This doesn't include the rosemary, chives, basil, mint, and parsley that are growing in the bay window

    I have 3 huge peace lilies in different rooms of my house. I think that I am going to have to start splitting them up here soon.

    I have 3, I just bought recently at the dollar store. The leaves look like a african violet but the flowers don't. You have to handle then tender like.

    Then I have 2 hanging ones. The one is a HUGE plant, this will be the 3rd summer we have had it. I made it into a house plant. It was just supposed to be a summer plant for the deck.

    I have one other one that so far is just leaves and not that big yet.
    And one old one that is a vine that I am going to re-pot when the weather gets better.

    I hope to put together some cheap type hanging plants for our deck this spring. I really don't want to spend big bucks on any new ones.

    Last summer we put in quite a few in the yard that I hope to see back this spring. A lot of iris ones. I got quite a deal.

    I only have one big Christmas Cactus. I hope it survives another few years. I really like it, but I don't think I do a really great job of taking care of it. I think I need to transplant it to a bigger container.

    Lets see I have----
    2 violets
    3 orchids
    2 spider plants
    1 geranium
    1 oregano
    1 chive
    1 aloe
    2 ivies
    1 angel wing begonia
    2 gold dust
    1 painted calathea
    2 christmas cactus

    Yep that is 19 plants----I never realized I had that many. Some I bought for .50 at Lowe's that they were going to throw out. I have brought them back to life. My orchids I got at Lowe's and they were marked down to $2.00. I did get them to rebloom. As you can tell I just love flowers.

    I have a lucky bamboo plant that hasn't been living up to it's name. I am thinking of making it an "outdoor" plant - in other words, it will go outside for the summer and not be allowed to come back in the fall (and die).

    I have a plant-eating cat so I can't have many live plants around here. He even chews on the fake ones and he thinks all flowers are edible.

    I used to have several but when we moved 8 years ago I gave them to our neighbor lady who lives in her garden. We just don't have room here for what I want but once we find land and build our house it will be full of plants.

    I have about 30+ silk plants all over the house. I couldn't grow anything if my life depended on it. Let's hope dh can if we ever have to plant a garden. No live plants though but I do love plants and flowers.

    Love plants and have plenty of them. Much to dh's dismay Detroit farmers market sells them for $1.50. They are sooo big. I love jade, but keep on killing them and trying again. Not too bad to replace when they are $1.50. I am really good with plants except those that need to be watered little. I did find out about a year ago that because of being afraid to overwater the jade, I was underwatering it. I also have Christmas cactus in my bay window that are blooming right now and I love them.

    Right now I have about 8 houseplants: 2 African violets, a jade, a Christmas cactus, easter cactus (?), a spider plant, a fish hook plant, and 2 bamboo plants.
    I am terrible with plants. I have killed so many of them. My violets are in self watering pots so they do ok. The spider plant is nearly unkillable (I have tried- LOL.). I even killed an aloe plant.

    I have 1! It is a spider plant and I've had it for 10 years, it was a gift from my Mom who has a bazillion plants in her home. Plants and I don't always do well but so far so good with this one!
