Can the plant go in my cubicle at work? I'm afraid my cats will nom on it if I keep it at home.

I like this one - our place is sadly lacking in greenery now the Christmas tree has gone. Will try and find something tomorrow!

I guess getting a silk plant and talking to that wouldn't count?

I have 3 cats and many plants. I recommend a ficus plant. They are easy plants to take care of. As long as they have good lighting and they are watered regularly they will thrive forever!

I just killed a bamboo shoot thing, and also a botanical.  My goldfish Frankie just died also. Awesome.  


Perhaps I'll get a cactus.

ADRIANA's picture

I have bamboo in my living room and kitchen.  I have 2 leafy green plants, probably native to the rainforest, in my living room and bathroom.  I talk to them and water them and they keep growing.  I think they might take over my apartment.

i just acquired my little friend. I called her norma, just posted her pic too.

super cute she be.

Saucyd's picture

I love bamboo! Do you have any tips for growing it indoors?  How tall are your bamboo plants?  I know that some varieties can get extremely tall.  Do you have a shorter variety, or do you just keep pinching them back?

I have a combination pot with a variagated vinca and English Ivy on my computer desk.

Both of these are transplants from our yard. I'm hoping to have good indoor plants from them to help with the air quality. If they work, then I'll be getting more from the yard.

In addition to these, I also have a couple of jade plants in the bathroom

Just got a little bonsai plant. Looks mighty small next to our mature orchid. Amazing the difference just a bt of green can do to the apartment!

Bought my little guy yesterday.  I am a little afraid I might kill it. 

KKesquire's picture

I have a plant at work and a bunch of plants at home so I went ahead and added a few more and then gave the ones I already had some extra attention. Love this feat! It makes such a big difference.

I can't keep plants in my house--my daughter's cats get into them, knock them over, etc.  But I keep and maintain a large outside garden of plants and flowers and veggies.  Does this count?

volcane09's picture

my kids and I bought an indoor tomato plant. The girls have named it "squirt" - I hope it survives. I don't have a good track record with plants. Although my 8 yo lets it listen to her ipod, so the plant has that going for it. Not sure how much the plant enjoys the daily hugs though.

deannajo's picture

instead of buying a new plant, I cleaned up my old plants by giving them a shower to get of the dust and repotted a few. They look happy and shiny now.

jan1965's picture

deannajo - i love your post.  it made me laugh :-)  

yeahredgymnast's picture

my husband says if I bring another plant in our house there won't be any room for people. I think I beat this feat.

nicole0703's picture

yikes! i have the same problem. i put mine outside my front door*

Just picked up some derivation of the Money Tree right after finding a $113 dollars. YEAH, ME!

To put an end to stress and mcp exam dis-ease we must begin the earnest exploration of the frontier that lies within. To find true joy and contentment, we acknowledge and serve the wisdom of our spiritual core by learning to steward the power of our a+ training thoughts, desires and emotions. American Meditation is a roadmap for this inward journey. American Meditation is a program of holistic practices and time-honored techniques to improve mental, emotional and physical well being. The only two requirements for network+ training benefiting from its use are your own personal determination and earnestness.

I just bought a fern, her name is Fran!

Llaves's picture

I'm going to go ahead and check this one off now, because I have the plant and it's doing well. It's on the window sill in my bathroom, which gets great light, and is the kind of vine-y plant that falls over the edge of the sill. It makes me happy to see it every morning, and it's thriving, so I think it's safe to say it will live throughout the challenge.

Instead of a plant, I got an Aerogarden! It's totally awesome. I'm watching my Romaine and basil grow as we speak! Also, I've been extra nice to the three plants in my apartment, that thankfully, have not died since I got them over summer.

maya622's picture

I want one of those Aerogardens. I think they would be wonderful to have.


My plants have survived.

lhlady517's picture

Love my new orchid!

KatieGaga's picture

i bought two new plants for my bedroom. repotted one yesterday. both plants have sprouted new leaves. so i'm sure that they will still be alive by friday. feat accompli!!

shawninchgo's picture

Checking it off here too, my plant is doing awesome!

vajardin's picture

its February 12 and by some miracle my basil plant is still alive! It is bad to think pesto sounds good with dinner???

swell1's picture

First time ever that I've managed to keep a bonsai alive ^_^

runleenarun's picture

Although the blooms on my Hyacinth died a long time ago, the plant is still green. I'm going to buy another plant for work, and let the hyacinth die so I can plant the bulb in my garden and hope to see it bloom again!

gleam's picture

Still kickin'!

tigertailamy's picture

I went from 0-4 plants this challenge and they have changed my life.  I say hello to them and touch them, I water them, I worry about them, and it is so wonderful to have another living thing in my apartment.  :-)

kornflowers's picture

hanging on. just hanging on.

Plant is happy and pretty. Photo TK!
