Houseplants in Silhouette

Avocado trees, lucky Bamboo, Amaryllis and a reverse hanging plant in a bay window facing east at dusk.

I couldn’t just let those avocado trees die in the compost heap in winter time. It’s bad luck to let a bamboo plant die. Amaryllis keep multiplying and I have to keep dividing them. That’s how I get windows full of plants.


  1. I love that you have such great house plants. Here in Australia it was very unfashionable to have house plants, (I always have them I am definitely not a fashion follower) but today I was at a hardware nursery shop and they suddenly have masses of indoor plants for sale. Way out of my price.

    1. That’s interesting. I wouldn’t care about fashion either. But most of my plants are from cuttings so I haven’t spent a lot of money on them . I started off with a few little plants. The amaryllis bulbs keep multiplying on their own, as well as the aloe vera. I pick up some pots at the thrift store.

      1. My plants are the same, from cuttings and pups, or bulbettes. I do not know what I did to my aloe vera this last year but it has been in the same spot for 10 years doing really well giving me pups and this last year not so good. Fingers crossed the pup plants do well. I go to my hardware shop/nursery and go to their area where the discounted plants are I sometimes get great plants at half price or better, they may be just neglected or needing to be cut back and they will be great next year. I have no shame in asking people for cuttings.
