Today's open thread is about growing things. Do you garden? Do you have houseplants? Do you wish you did? Do you have dreams of genetically engineering an enormous carnivorous plant to keep intruders away?

We have a couple of house plants that my mother is determined to kill off and I'm determined to resurrect despite them not being mine XD I'd love to have a plant in my room but I just don't have the space to put it where my animals can't risk knocking it over. I would love to garden but a flood a few years ago has left our ground barren ;___;

I'd totally live in a house surrounded by Devil's Snare. o.o

I could have used a giant carnivorous plant last week when my apartment was burgled. :(

Right now where I live we're getting a foot of snow dumped on us (I just love "spring" in Minnesota) but in about a month it should be safe to plant. I usually get magenta-colored impatiens for my flower pots but I might get a variety of different plants this year.

We're planning to have roses, when I move.

I have a notorious black thumb, but I'm actually gearing up to go out and buy four potted plants for my apartment balcony on Saturday in an attempt to make it nicer to sit out and read on. I am rather hoping that going for apartment-patio-friendly native plants will make it easier for them to survive my particular brand of absentmindedness and benign neglect. At least natives will help out the local pollinator species and maybe attract hummingbirds if I'm *very* lucky while they survive, anyway.

The only things I trust myself to raise are plants in Sims 3.

I have 3 houseplants this spring. Unfortunately, one of them has been knocked off the windowsil and de-potted 3 times already... the struggles of apartment gardening -_-

Lately I've been reading about the biophilia hypothesis, but even before that I've thought it was important to have plants if one spends a lot of time indoors; they're known to improve air quality.

I'm often away for several weeks so most plants are out of the question, but I do keep a bamboo stick (excellent! Can survive weeks and weeks without being watered!) and frequently basil (which is sort of a temporary good anyway). That said, I recently had the experience where I was in flare-up and saw the basil plant withering away and could. not. get up to water it, and this was sufficiently depressing and made me feel like a sufficiently terrible person that I'm reconsidering. :( tis a pity for I really like plants.
