Flowers Inside/Tropicals

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Well this is the looks of my bedroom for the winter season! Pineapple, vigna, jasmine, ee, passiflora, caladiums and likely then some. But so fragrant to sleep by.

I work on my afghan in that chair by the door going to the tub. Quite fragrant and relaxing least while still blooming, calling for a freeze this eve so had to get them inside.

That is beautiful! It is getting cooler, I am going to have to start thinking about getting my plants back inside very soon........back to the Jungle Theme for the Winter!!!!

Hi Trisha, nice to meet you and welcome to the thread. Surprised you haven't had to bring things in already, we are in the western md mts. are you still in a warm trend there?
Must admit it does smell devine, can't notice the smell as much when outside, but now that they are in, it is glorious. Wont last long in the inside environment and will be cuting all back soon, but enjoy for a bit.
Thanks for coming and thanks for looking and please share your inside garden when you can.

BTW trisha, what are peanut patties? Why can't you get them, can't you order online and get them?

Peanut patties are basically about three to four inch rounds of raw peanuts in a some sort of a cooked reddish-pink sugar mixture.....the sugar is softer and somewhat crumbly....not hard like peanut brittle!

As for indoor plants don't have a lot any more...Sanseveria, small palms, my avocado trees a few Spider plant starts and Christmas cactus, pothos and burros tail. I suffer from too much stuff in too little space...add a dog and a cat to the mix.......oohhh to have a greenhouse!!

We don't have to bring anything inside for winter thankfully. I have an african violet collection. I can't have a bunch of plants bringing bugs in!

I have a sunroom though if it gets cold. We have nice winters though.

Your plants look so pretty!

Sounds sweet!
Not any problem with bugs Sally, I just hose them off before coming in and they are fine. Would be nice to have a heated sunroom here, but not the case. Have thought about a greenhouse, but they are a lot of work and I just don't have the time, I do have access to a greenhouse where these could overwinter, but I wouldn't be able to see them and tend them everyday, so like them near and dear better.

haighr I have a funny one.....YOU have (or had) the mirror to my dresser hanging on your fence!! I was looking at some back contest photos, I think it was 2004. Came across one of your entries and there was my missing mirror hanging on you fence!!! So pretty!

Actually we still have the dresser that goes with that mirror Trisha, but glad there is another like it. It is quite old as it was our gggrandmothers. Got the dresser up in the work room full of paint and decorations for out pictures that we make. What a small world.

How did I miss this?
Love your bedroom Candee, it looks fabulous with all your plants looking snug and warm for winter!

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Thanks, it is snug as a bug in a rug LOL. Do wish I had a heated sun porch or somethin for them, but this has sufficed for years and guess it shall continue to do so. It is a bit of a hassle when the leaves start dropping and the dust bunnies need collected there.
