Perhaps you find, as I do, that gardening indoors is a pleasant activity with equally pleasant side effects. Houseplants connect us to nature, improve our winter-weary moods, and provide us with beautiful, living decoration for our homes. And unlike the garden outdoors, where enthusiasm often exceeds both sense and strength, a collection of houseplants is manageable. There are no hoses to drag, nor any weeds to pull. Indeed, we receive a bounty of joy for only a modicum of toil!
Let’s celebrate this season of indoor gardening with a friendly survey: Your favorite houseplants. Which ones bring you springtime cheer in the dead of winter? African violets? Riotous vines? Tropical things we’ve never heard of? Tell us your favorites in the comments section below.
