House plants
 
I know most people have them but do any of you take a more serious interest in them? I just recently got into it and it's surprisingly rewarding. If there's any interest I figured we can post pics and share our experiences.

Pot plants don't count but if you got them and wanna post pics put them in a spoiler so the squares don't get riled up.

Define what "pot plants" refers to. I may or may not have a few.

I have plants inside of pots if that's what you mean.

Well alright then; no I'm not growing any weeds at the moment.

I wasn't sure if you meant "potted plants" and were only asking about people who are growing things outside.

I do indeed have a few potted plants but they're not all that much. If you show me yours I'll show you mine.

In all seriousness I always wanted to have a big plant growing in the corner of my room I could hide behind to scare people.

We have a few. I'm particular to the different species of cacti.

We have a few cacti and other easy to maintain varieties. The coolest one is a desert rose. The base looks like some weird potato and the branches look like a tree. Because of neglect it wasn't doing well for a while but now it had its first flower in about three years and another is about to bloom.

Which kinds produce the best edible fruits?

Inside we have a "Zanzibar Gem" which is supposed to "thrive on neglect". It is dying.

Outside we have some huge aloe vera which is flowering, some San Pedro cactus (legal in Australia for ornamental purposes, but hey it's gotta be trimmed sometime :cute: ), a mandarin tree which is bearing fruit right now, and some other stuff.

Low maintenance succulents, and fruit trees for the win I reckon.

Inside we have a bunch that I never paid attention to, they could be swapped out with other plants daily and I wouldn't notice. Outside we have a massive disorderly rose bush, raspberries, rhubarb, strawberries, an apple tree, and some kind of nut tree that I can't remember it's name, not sure if the nuts are edible.

I'm looking for indigenous North American edible small plants. Do you know which are the best for small growing areas?

Re: House plants
 
Sorry, I really know nothing about it, I just moved into a house that had all that stuff already there.

I have an Aloe Vera growing on my porch but nothing growing inside other than moldy bread.
