Good for you for planting. Personally, I HATE houseplants. It irritates me
no end when I have to bring them in for the winter. Here's why:-
1-they hate it
2-they look like poop-on-a-stick by the time spring rolls around again
3-the animals knock them over
4-they get in my way
Many other various reasons. 

I drag all of my plants outside every spring and they do not come back in
until it's time to freeze. 

Someday-I want a solarium or conservatory to spend my winters in that has
concrete wall, tile floors, a drain in the floor and of course glass on the
upper parts. AND I want a sink and a hose spicket in the room too. That way
everything can stay as humid as it likes, I can hose it all down, and then
it runs down the drain. Ah, to dream. 

Poured here all night, now it's cloudy and windy and cold. Cleaned the
house, took the dogs to the park, went to the store, now I'm ready for the
couch and to watch a bad sci fi channel movie. Love those!!1 LOL!

Well, I woke up to temps in the high 20's this morning.  Gross.  So - if I
can't go OUTSIDE and play in the dirt, I decided to play in the dirt in my
KITCHEN.  I started some of the datura seeds you gave me Andrea.  I just
love those and can't wait to see the beautiful blossoms on them.  I repotted
some of my sad looking house plants - some of them half-eaten by my CAT.
 She has a thing about the spider plants and eats all the new babies off,
and munches on the leaves.  Then - she goes in the other room and barfs.
 Nice.  I don't have a place in my house where I can put them out of her
reach.  And - I realized that some of these houseplants look like
poop-on-a-stick, and will always look like that because I've been nursing
them along and trying to make them look wonderful for the last 5 years and
they refuse.  So, they go in my compost pile.  If a plant doesn't bring me
joy, and it's not beautiful after years of trying - then it just becomes
frustrating and a source of irritation.  So - out they go.  Time to revamp
my plants and gardens.  If it's not working for me, then I need to try
something different.
