My friend Barbara at Mr. McGregor's Daughter has invited us to post about our houseplants, perhaps allowing any snowbound gardeners to feel as if they are strolling through the garden. I believe the instructions are to post the total number of your current houseplants and so I did a quick count. I found exactly 30 plants living indoors today...down a few from a year or so ago. That reminded me that I discarded all my African Violets and a few other scraggly plants last summer when I decided that they needed to be put out of their misery. I also realized that the majority of my plants are pothos. I hadn't really noticed that before but there are a few reasons they are in almost every room here. Pothos are easy to grow, tolerate pretty much any light situation and they are one of the best plants for improving the air quality in your home. Besides that they are inexpensive, easily found and I just like the way they look. Please visit Mr. McGregor's Daughter to see other houseplant census reports!
