A Place For Everything...

There is another reason why bringing my plants back inside causes me to question my sanity. I have to find places to put them all, relocating lots of the plants that remained indoors in the process. “But Karen715," you say. “Why not just put them all back where you had them last winter? Move both the indoor and the outdoor plants to their original spots.”

::Lowers eyes, mumbles sheepishly::

Well, you see, there is the matter of all the new plants I acquired during the spring and summer. Click the pictures for larger views.

Hoya multiflora, Hoya kerri variegata, and a variegated Hoya carnosa

Thai Aglaonemas, from left to right:
Sethimankong,’ A. ‘Dona Carmen,’ A. ‘Siam Aurora,’ A. ‘Butterfly’ (I think)

Epipremnum aureum ‘N’Joy’

Ficus elastica variety

Sansevierias, clockwise from the left, sort of:
S. masoniana, NOID S. trifasciata cultivar, S. kirkii var kirkii,
S. cylindrica.In front: S. kirkii var pulchra ‘Coppertone’

Another pic of Sansevieria kirkii var pulchra ‘Coppertone’ just because I love it

Purchased, but not pictured: Aglaonema ‘Cory,’ A. ‘Flamingo’, A. ‘Maria,' A. 'Illumination.' Also Thai Aglaonema ‘Heritage.’ Selenicereus anthonyanus, Hylocereus undulatus, a NOID Epiphyllum.

Five Hedera helix cultivars. Philodendron brandtianum. Eight Haworthias (these were divided among three dish gardens.) An orange flowered Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. A Codiaeum that is already in trouble. Portulacaria afra, one plain and one variegated. Aloe ‘Walmsley’s Blue.’ And last but not least, a NOID Sedum. There is also the possibility that I am forgetting something.

What does the kid call me again? Oh yeah, Crazy Plant Lady.

Every time I see a Sansevieria kirkiivar pulchra 'Coppertone,' my brain insists on calling it a Cryptanthus. And then we fight, my brain and I.

I certainly hope you make up afterward!

I never noticed the resemblance until you mentioned it.
