Inside Garden

I spent today gardening.
We found some plants at Ikea a week or so ago, and they've been patiently waiting for me to repot them and place them in their new home.
When I added some new bark to my old faithful desert plant (name unknown, it was a gift almost ten years ago from someone who got it from a botanist who said it was rare) I found a FLOWER SPIKE starting! It bloomed a few months before it was gifted to me, and now it is blessing me with blooms 10 years later :-}
My other (new) plants are a bromiliead, a dracaena 'tree', a snake plant, my amaryllis and two rescued orchids (only 99 cents each, and they needed some loving)

Cool! Happy flowering time!

I went out today and bought a half dozen pots for the half dozen huge amaryllis bulbs my dad just gifted me with. Tis the season. And indoor gardening is the type I do, too.

how do you keep the kitties out of the plants?!?!?!?! Our little MPD Amor/Diablo thinks that the avacado tree I finally got to grow, and the plants, and the CACTI are all catnip. Geez, MPD and retarded to boot... glad he's not my cat, he's the daughter's! LOL

I put rocks, point upward on top of the dirt. The water can still get through but the kitties don't want to scratch.

A flower spike is such good news!
