Okay, so maybe I should entitle this section ‘Plant of the Month’ or ‘Plant of the Whenever I get Around to It’

But I digress.

At any rate, its still a list of plants that I’ve had a chance to see growing, experience hands on, or in some cases just take photos of. I have a lot of fun learning about them, so I hope you’ll also find these plant pages useful! Or at least mildly entertaining :)

Hint: Looking to see if I have a specific plant but don’t want to scroll? Use the ‘Search All Posts’ feature in the first column to the right.
