RE: new additons

I love both of these plants! They don't look like they came from Exotic Angel, the only house plants I can find for sale lately. Not complaining about that, as long as they keep getting different ones. That's cool that someone with a ton of huge plants already would be interested in these "little kitties."

The top one looks like it will hold itself upright for a while, but curious if you want to hang the second one or give it a support to climb.

Don't want to risk creeping-out someone new, but have been dying to know where you are, Polly. At least the state if you feel comfortable.

I think your Philo is really this Scindapsus. Or is that an "old" name...?

Not a Pothos is it? ;)

Purple, the latin name is Scindapsus pictus argyraeus. I only posted the common name. Both plants are from Exotic Angel (Home Depot)
the other plant is Philodendron Scandeus

I live in N. E Pennsylvania.

As far as little plants, if I dont stop buying plants that get big, I wont have room to live. LOL I am hanging them together. I am putting both pots into one pot but, until spring. I want to see what the Brazil does.
Larry good call, see the link scroll down.
Thanks

Here is a link that might be useful: Scindapsus

RE: new additons

See I generally dislike variegated plants, the splashy splodgy kinds are a turn off for me,but this S.pictus is right up my street!

RE: new additons

Larry, maybe you get find it online.It was only a few dollars.

RE: new additons

Well i know its name, its logged in my noggin, I will get one if I encounter it.

RE: new additons

I was just wondering if they've renamed it from Scindapsus to Philodendron, or the other way 'round and back again. That's one of the ones I've been hoping to find, so pretty!

The closest HD here is over an hour away but I find quite a few EA plants at WM. Finally had a chance during the daytime on a weekday to visit a garden center in another town that I drive by once a week and it was closed for the season, possibly forever. Frustrating!

Glad to know these plants were from EA. The ones I find at WM lately are in these no-hole cache pots and I didn't know if WM was doing that or EA. Unless you had already taken yours off, looks like it's WM that's doing it.

Potting these two together sounds like a cute idea! It had occurred to me to do the same with Philos 'Micans' and 'Brazil' to save space this winter but haven't decided yet. They may remain in the tiny pots with the tiny pots sitting within the rim of other, larger plants.

Totally thought you were in FL for some reason. Wishful thinking that we'd become fast friends and you'd invite the family down for a week at your beachside house with the indoor pool and jacuzzi while we admire your beautiful plants in the lovely light of sunset, eating gourmet catered food served by barely clad cabana boys as the servants entertain the kids and scratch off all of our lottery tickets, which are all winners. Guess I had a facet or 2 of that fantasy a little off... Anyone else who says they weren't having an identical fantasy (except maybe cabana gals instead of guys) is just not being honest, don't even try that. I know better.

I have family/friends in Scranton. Beautiful area! Always wanted to go skiing up that way but never visited during snow season.

HAHAHAHAHHAAA I Wish. I hate the winters. Thats one of the reasons I have all the plants, so I can pretend its not cold frozen and barren outside. If you ever get up this way, give me a holler, I would love to meet you.

Exactly what I am doing. I figured the Brazil is going to go straight up. Not sure though, so I will refrain from planting them together until I know what the plan is.

Pirate, Im not sure but I think its the first pic, the al green plant.

RE: new additons

Thanks GL, I'm sorry, I misread it & expected a 3rd plant, going too fast I guess, thanks.

RE: new additons

Polly...

Those are beautiful. I am sure they are in good hands. Now watch them grow fast.

I have an interest in the 'moonlight' one. I have one and I love it. The new leaf comes out a bright yellow on mine.

Sorry for the confusion, I was putting a title on the first pic.

RE: new additons

Polly, beautiful Philos.

Moonlight can get large. It will eventually need staking.

Purple, I know Polly's plant as Scindapsis, too. Although the name could have been changed..
Did you say it had a common name? If so, what is it?


 o
RE: new additons

Thanks hopeful, OH my another large plant.. I will eventually have room upstairs. LOL
