So.... I went to Home Depot and got myself new plant for beside my front door. This time, I decided to go with one from the "House Plant" section since the spot beside my front door never gets direct sunlight, and I can't remember to drag the pot into the sunshine for "x" amount of hours per day.
I got an "anthurium" for beside the front door.
I chose it because, according to my research, it thrives in tropical climates with temperatures that range from 70-90 degrees. It also doesn't need direct sunlight, and it doesn't need water every single day (perfect for people like me who lack a green thumb). Let's hope this one will do well.
Immediately after I got home with my new Anthurium, I regretted not getting one of the Aloe plants that I saw. Growing up, my Mimi always had Aloe, and it was fantastic for burns, sunburns, and even bug bites. I thought I could use one around my house.
So I turned around and went back for an Aloe plant.
And I couldn't stop with just that one. I got two other little house plants to experiment with on my lanai.
Here they are...
They aren't very big, and like the Anthurium out front, they supposedly don't require a lot of water. (And just in case you're wondering, from left to right they are Euphorbia, Echeveria, and Aloe.)
Let's hope I can keep these pretty little guys alive for a good long while.
What do you guys think? Anyone besides me want desperately to be surrounded by pretty flowers and plants but you just don't have a green thumb?
