I’ve always had a collection of houseplants that I propagate and maintain over multiple years. Not traveling so much this year I’ve tried a few new to me plants. At Christmas they had some colorful aglaonema that I’d never tried growing, so I picked up a couple instead of the usual poinsettias. Since then I have divided and will share some of the aglaonema.

They did so well I got some other varieties and studied up on them. Some are a bit more colorful than my usual green ferns, Hoyas and philodendrons.

Have you explored houseplants more than usual last year? What plants have captured your fancy?

They look so colourful.

No I don't have a lot, over 30 years ago used to have a cheese plant which I kept very well and then a mother in law's tongue that was very easy to keep, just hardly watered it. I left them with my parents when i moved away didn't have room for them.
Now I just have a flowering cactus.

I have two varieties of cactus that flower. E0B7436C-F630-4B4E-A69C-B852C2ACB398.jpeg Have no idea what variety either is but it’s fun to see them bloom. The red blooms only during the summer. The little cream/white blooms all year round. C0B197A5-E0EE-4657-9E73-E9A98D5546BD.jpeg It is a really tiny little plant, although it might get bigger if I had bigger window sills.
