Dead-of-winter houseplant buying spree
I've been away from this forum for a year or more. It's so inspiring to come back and look through all the excellent advice and beautiful pictures. Thanks, everyone.
It's the dead of winter here in MA, which means...I need houseplants! Ahem. I already have houseplants, but, when everything is frozen and gray outside, a person just can't get enough greenhouse therapy. So I haunt the local nurseries, and, somehow, they always have something irresistible. I know this is far from the ideal time to bring new plants home, but I haven't been able to resist some of them. I wanted to share the new additions. Thanks for looking! --Amanda
I fell in love with the stromanthe 'amergris' (I think) when I saw it online. Two days later, there it was, in my local nursery. It was a little battered, but putting out some new growth. Bring a member of the marantaciae family into a non-greenhouse environment at this time of year? I know, not optimal, but it called to me. Loudly. We'll see how it does.
