I need some suggestions regarding some larger low-light indoor plants. I seem to be able to find plenty of indoor plants that require a good bit of light, but not very many low-light. So far, I have only purchased a Chinese Evergreen. Which ones have you all had the best luck with/your favorites etc? Thanks ahead of time!
We're not really sure, but that's not stopping us from starting!
Because we don't know much, we're starting small--our goal is to grow the ingredients for
homemade tomato sauce. We've made a bed, we've prepared our soil, and we've put some starts and seeds in the ground. If there's anything we don't know that you're sure we need to know, we'd love to hear from you!
Last year, I turned a birdbath into a flower planter and filled it with 3 types of sedum. I wasn't sure how it would fare, thru summer or winter. But, during the summer it flourished, and
it fared well over the winter as well. I let the leaves and pinestraw that fell, stay and be a mulch/cover for it during the cold months. And this spring, its quite beautiful, even though one particular type has overtaken the others for now lol. (although the one that grows like a vine I had to trim back b/c it looked quite rough after the winter, even tho it was still living)...there are even pieces that fell to the ground and are growning! :)
After we take our holiday tree down, we set it outside for all the critters that come to visit our yard. When we went to take it down a few days ago, we found a mama bird sitting on her nest. I got my first shot of her today---can't wait until there are some peeping babies!
