    Question Do you have household plants in your home?

    I love plants and the more I can have the better I feel.

    How about you? What type do you have.

    My favorite have got to be ivy and African violets. I have a couple I don't even know their names but one is just now starting to bloom.

    I have 14 right now, I love houseplants and would like more. A few I don't know what there names are either. One is a 6ft tall norfork Island pine, that one i'm having the most problems with. Lower branches are drying out even though I keep the plant moist...

    I absolutely LOVE plants, if I could keep from killing them...

    Oh well, another good intention to add to the list!

    I love plants but only have herbs planted on the kitchen window sill because my cat will eat them. I wish I knew which houseplants were safe for cats.

    The ASPCA website has an extensive list of which plants are poisonous to cats, you should check them out

    I love plants, and have many. I have cactus both christmas and the pokie kind, spider, english ivy, aloe, philodendron, bamboo, snake plant (aka mother in laws tongue), charlie, gold fish plant, bead of pearls, and a few I have no idea what the names are. You can't have to many house plants.....LOL

    I have three... a philodendron, a spider plant, a creeping charlie (Pilea nummularifolia). I am really bad at remembering to water them, but oddly enough they are doing well. The philodendron (I think) is poisonous to cats so it's kept up. Thankfully it's not very big yet so it's easy to keep away from them.

    I seem to kill house plants. I am going to get an Aloe-Vera plant. My grandmother used to have all kinds of house plants. I remember ferns, spider plants, and aloe-vera. My grandma Na used to have African Violets and Christmas Cactus. I didn't seem to get the green thumb gene.

    More than I can count. My oldest plants are my snake plant and my spider plant. The latter has been with me probably ten years or more, and she produces babies like mad. I think I have plants in every room, and that's not counting all the edible plants I have growing!

    I have about 10 plus a herb garden I just started. I keep my spider plant down for the cats to chew on and they know not to touch the other ones. None of them ar poisonous but the spider plant is the only one that keeps growing no matter what. The cats are all indoor so they don't get to go out and chew on the grass.
