This would possibly have been more helpful to people, or at least more timely, if I d posted it earlier, but you know how things go sometimes. Houseplants with heart-shaped leaves are surprisingly uncommon. I looked through the yearbook expecting to find them all over the place, but actually, most of the stuff that looked heart-shaped were actually either round ( orbicular ) or lens-shaped (elliptic) leaves, that only appeared to be slightly heart-shaped when viewed from a particular …

Adding a new houseplant or two after the holidays may help the winter pass by a bit faster. Flowering plants are nice because they add color at a time when we really need it. If you are looking for something different, try a Bromeliad — it is sort of a cross between a foliage plant and a flowering plant. They not only have unusual flowers, but they also have attractive glossy or patterned strap-like leaves. Bromeliads are relatives of the pineapple and come from tropical and subtropical …

Because my house seems to be a plant death trap, it s necessary that I buy plants that are …

I‘ve bought yet another plant after saying I was tired of my houseplants. I pounced on this forced hyacinth in bud while grocery shopping.

Strange fads such as streaking, fondue parties, breakdancing, and mainlining heroine got a lot more attention than the boring and benign houseplant. Do not be deceived – this quiet …

The search for dust and dirt, and the shove of a broom beneath tiny spaces, is a quest most deliberate. You seek out corners and crevices; you scrub along ceilings and staircase curves. There’s no surface that escapes your attention. Every inch of your house is scoured and stripped of all things vile. And finally, the day yields results as the proof of your success is seen in the slick floorboards and polished silver. Your home is clean. Of this you are certain. Such certainty …
