Residents of The Jungle

A list of all my plants based on what room they’re in.  Pictures will be added as will new plants as they’re added.  This list represents only the plants I was able to bring with me when I moved and does not represent the 30-40 plants I had to leave at my parents house.  (this is still a rough draft, spelling errors and the like will be corrected soon!)

  1. Hi Tom,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I’m enjoying your blog, too, and noticed that you go a bit crazy on houseplants like I do. I would have even more if I could knock out more walls and add more windows, but alas, my townhouse homeowner association won’t allow that. But just you wait—one day I will live in a greenhouse! ;-)

    I’m adding you to my blogroll, if’n you don’t mind! You commented on my gardenmuse blog, and I’ll add you there and on my main blog (

    Happy plant tending!


  2. Not a problem at all! I wish I had about 5x as much space so I could have about 500 more houseplants. For now I’ll settle with my 10 foot living room window and a scattering of smaller ones in the rest of the place. I’ll put you on my blogroll as well!

  4. Good work cataloging all your plants Tom. I know it’s a big undertaking to get it started. But then it’s easy to update after you’ve got everything there!

  7. You say something about an onion plant which does not have exciting blooms, looks like a bleeding heart to me, mine in Fl, gone bare in the winter, spring they pop out all over they are beautiful flowers.

    On another one you were saying you wanted to cut it back, it looks like a night blooming cerus to me, I have two they only bloom once a year at 12 pm and gone by the next day, I started mine from a leave.

    you need some amaryllis seeds I have plenty of orange, I have about 40 baby plants all stages started from seeds, if you want some send me an e mail will send them to you
