While the Grow Write Guild prompt asked about changes to your garden, as the closest thing I have to a garden at the moment is my houseplants, I decided it would be best to write about those instead.Back in the fall of 2011 I moved out of the house and into my a tiny closet of a college dorm room. The only greenery I took with me was a small clay pot with a spider plant stolon taken from a large plant back at my house in Michigan. Over the course of a year, I went from one plant to three, to eight, to twelve. Now that I'm in a large apartment, my plant count is currently at eighteen houseplants; that count not including the five tomatoes and three pepper plants that will soon be going into a friend vegetable garden.
|My collection began with that little pot that is holding up a|
few of my books and was soon joined by another spider plant.
|My plant propagation class soon bumped my total up even higher.|
|My hibiscus plant was one of the biggest additions.|
|My first African violet has now become four African violets |
through propagation and division.
|Here is two of those new African violets with a bit of a |
view of the pothos plant.
