This really wouldn't be a big issue, except we are short on indoor space with enough light.... and I might have doubled the amount of house plants we had this year. Dave made more than enough snarky comments about the "jungle" last year... I was really worried about how the main floor was going to look after I got everything inside.
Luckily, I was able to sneak my plant stand in the space between the fish tank and Grandma's table.
I recently got moved to an office with a window at work, so I took the few remaining orchids I had there....
The Passion Flower didn't bloom this summer
But it grew enough that I had to re-pot it. I reused the pot and trellis from the pear tomato I bought this summer. It should be able to live there for a good while before it outgrows it.
The big worry was the Hibiscus. You haven't seen much of it, because over the winter, it got a horrible white fly infestation. I almost lost it, but it spent all summer recuperating and despite not blooming yet, it's doing really well.
However, over the summer, Sam's Mom gave me a 60-year old Jade tree. It spent the summer occupying the Hibiscus' winter spot at the back door. Both trees need the sun, and we're severly limited on spaces big enough with enough sun.
And Dave has barely made a peep about it all..... yet!
