Here is a small collection of some of my favorite houseplants. Click the thumbnails for a larger view.

You can find more photographs of my indoor and outdoor plants in my Picturetrail and two Picasa albums.

Monstera deliciosa

Monstera deliciosa


Philodendron bipinnatifidum. Also called Philodendron selloum. I purchased this in 2004 in a six-inch pot.

Bird of Paradise

Philodendron, White Bird of Paradise, Foxtail fern. Philodendron bipinnatifidum, Strelitzia nicolai, andAsparagus densiflorus 'Meyersii'


Peperomia incana. This has lovely velvety leaves, and a semi-succulent habit.

Window Shelves

Bedroom window shelves. These shelves were built for me with much love by Bob.

Ivy Wreath

Ivy Wreath and Foxtail "Fern."This living wreath, composed of several cultivars of Hedera helix, was a seasonal planting from the summer of 2008.


Hoya Carnosa variety

Neon Pothos

Neon "Pothos." This variety ofEpipremnum aureumhas bright yellow and chartreuse foliage. Photographs do not do it justice.


Sansevieria trifasciata 'Bantel's Sensation'


Sansevieria trifasciata 'Silver Laurentii'

Haworthia Bowl

Haworthia Bowl. There are so many species and subspecies of Haworthia that it is difficult to keep track. But they seem to all go nicely together.

ZZ and dogs

Zamioculcas zamiifolia. This pic of my ZZ plant isn't the best, but I decided to post it because of our 12 year-old golden retrievers, Jenny and Laces


Begonia 'Crackin' Rosie.' This is an easy cane begonia--I say this with my fingers crossed. I've had healthy begonias deteriorate almost overnight.

Norfolk Island Pine

Norfolk Island Pine. Araucaria heterophylla. A plant that has surprised me by being problem-free. I try to keep it cool in the winter.


Euphorbias I am especially fond of the tall Euphorbia lactea, which is crested on one side. The short green one is a fully crested E. lactea. Even though I don't usually care for grafts, I couldn't resist the colors on the third plant in the picture.


Hedera helix varieties


Another Hedera helix


Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivar.This picture was taken on 2/28/09. Spring is on its way! That's my kitty Luke peeking out from behind.
