Can't remember the name of this plant

The plant in the black pot between the chicks & hens and the african violet. For the life of me, I just can't remember. I hope the pic is clear enough.

Can't think of anything useful to say to your question since I have no idea. But I'm curious what the plant at the left edge with the pink leaves is? Love the spool, the plants, everything about your pic! I've always wanted one of those spools for a "pot table" just like that. Nice!

Purple - I think you're looking at the pink blooms of Euphorbia Milii (aka crown of thorns & other common names).


RE: Can't remember the name of this plant

I think you're right. Deja vu... every time I see one of these I want it, then remember about the thorns and dismiss it from my mind. Pretty, though!

RE: Can't remember the name of this plant

Hey Purple,

I'm anti-thorn myself, yet grow a number of these, their thorns really aren't bad at all & I have various E. miliis now, some of which have no thorns at all. I encourage you to try.

Seriously, I am so anti-thorn that I grow no cacti at all (other than the holiday cacti we know & love).


The plant ID you ask about at the top MAY be an Anthurium, tough to tell from that pic.

Nice plants, enjoy!!

plantladyco - Yes! Emerald green. Thanks, I've been experiencing brain fog for so long now and... well, it gets on the tip of my tongue and I just can't spit it out. LOL

purple - I have to agree with pirate girl on the thorns. The "head" of the plant is dense enough for the thorns to not be a problem. And it's one of the easiest plants to grow for me. And I have a couple of those spools. Fortunately for me, our local electric company leaves them at our recycle center. Maybe you could check where your power co leaves theirs.
