ant plant dischidia
mules ear "walking bryophyllum
rex & strawberry begonia
rubber tree plant
silver squill bulb plant
and others that i will be receiving on trade soon...i will list them later unless someone else lists them later...
thanks in advance

Hi, interested in mules ear, staghorn fern and pickle cacti. DebK
Most of those plants on your list will survive the winter in a north window, but don't expect them to fluorish. Of those plants the best candidates for a north window are:
sanseveria, peperomia, rubber tree, spider plant, staghorn, bromeliads and jade. Be careful to protect them from cold drafts and be sure not to overwater.
thanks Will........i sure hope they do ok......i have acquired a lot of plants that are gonna need the best light to survive the winter so till i get sometype of green house up or get my eclosed porch to stay warm enough, thats what i have to do....disperse them through out the house.....thanks again
and Deb....those arent the plants that im gonna get rid of.....my trade list is posted..and updated for now...i have some trades im trying to sort out as we speak....cindy
I have my rex begonias in a north window and they love it.
P.S. Sure are more Cindy's on this site than I've seen on other sites!
