I have had many kinds of houseplants, but right now I have a christmas cactus that is almost as old as me (I'm 35), it was my grandmas. It finally started to bloom a few years ago for me, but not this year. I think I left it outside a little too late in the season and threw it all off. It's still only about a foot across.
I also have my son's aloe vera from school, a maidenhair fern (which has no chance because my cat always finds a way to get to it), a succulent which I can't remember the name of (something about 'jade' comes to mind), and a plant that I've been trying to grow for literally about 6 years, and it's still only 5 inches tall. However there is a weed in it that sprung up last week and is already taller than the plant! LOL
Again, no luck with houseplants, but every year my gardens are beautiful, if very small. If I can ever figure out how to attach an image, I'll put one up!
I have a question for anyone out there; I just bought some sulphur fungicide for black spot and powdery mildew because the company recommended it, but when I got it and read the instructions, there were all of these warnings about how dangerous it is to touch or breath! And this stuff is organic! Has anyone else ever used it, and what was your experience? Any other organic suggestions for black spot or powdery mildew? Thanks!
