A sampling of some of the new greenery at home.
This ivy is incredibly happy where it is. I got this little tiny thing a couple of months ago and I just love seeing its leaves cascading down the bookcase.
Still not immune to killing plants, I recently retired my Coffee Cups Elephant Ear plant after I watered it to death. Needing to fill this corner with another tall-ish plant, I scored this Fiddle Leaf Fig at Home Depot for $19! That price is a total steal given how much these plants go for at any other nursery especially at its current size. This would've fetched for at least three times that amount anywhere else.
The only plant at home that I don't know the name of. I needed something to fill this little log pot that has been left empty for the better part of the year. edit: My friend, Miel informed me that this is an African Violet. Yay!
This is a tiny Asplenium scolopendrium, a type of fern. I love how the leaves are wavy and quite sturdy. I recently saw a gigantic version of this at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Beautiful!
And finally, the cutest addition: a Pilea peperomiodes (aka Chinese Money Plant). According to the interwebs, the pilea has an interesting story of its migration from China to Norway sometime around the 1940's.
This plant lives inside our bedroom. Can't wait for it to grow further so I can propagate and give it away to friends.
