Happy Houseplants

After almost two years of successfully growing some low light aquatic plants, I decided a few months ago to try my hand at some houseplants.

A year ago I had a peace lily, which I promptly killed. Around the same time I stick some avocado seeds in water (the toothpick method) and eventually sprouted two of them.

A few months ago, I planted the avocados in soil, and one has done really well with some beautiful leaves. The other is still just a stem but it looks like a healthy stem.

There’s a 3rd seed in there I just stuck directly into the dirt. Maybe it’ll sprout, maybe not.

Around the same time, I ordered a monstera deliciosa online and it was shipped to me a medium priority mail box. It’s been putting out new leaves like crazy and in the last 6 weeks has more than doubled in size.

After that, I bought this tiny little arrow leaf vine, which was the only healthy looking plant at Walmart. It’s also doubled in size and is thriving.

After that I ordered two parlor palms which whole they aren’t getting tons of new growth, seem really happy as long as they’re pretty wet. I did drain off the extra water after I took this pic – I don’t leave them sitting in a lake! Lol

I also bought a spider plant, which is not doing well, and I have some pothos cuttings that I’m trying to get to root.
