  1. I just forwarded this to my husband as he is the one with the green thumb! I was just telling him that we need a new plant so thank you!

  2. I need to learn more about houseplants, since I can’t seem to keep them alive. I did recently get a fiddle leaf fig, and 6 months in it’s thriving. Time to add one of these to my home :)

    • Six months is long! We are actually going do another houseplants post but one with plants that are very very hard to kill.

  3. You forgot the most beautiful plant there is… The hoya carnosa compacta (indian Rope) as well as the other waxy leaf hoyas! Also, the pothos. I have about 10 that i have from rootings , and they are thick and gorgeous!

    • You are so right, Joan! Those are so beautiful!! We were trying to getting the list down to 8. P.S. We’d love to see your indoor plant collection! Sounds like you know and have a lot! XOXO
