My two favorite plants are my ficus trees, one variegated. My bil gave me a peace lily last year which I love and actually started a 2nd one off. I have an assortment of plants but, imo, can never have too many. I need to replace my Christmas cactus, I don't know what happened, it was probably 15.

What's funny though, to me and I'm sure many of you, I'm not an outdoor gardener.

Add to the list with these beauties that have thrived in my home for years: hoya carnosa, ficus benjamanni, maranta, spathyphyllum, aspidistra! Successfully grown house plants since I was a child. Now nearing 60, they have never gone out of style in my homes, but one did lack light for indoor plants to thrive. North facing rooms are a boon for some plants, while others will enjoy the indirect light of a south facing porch or conservatory.
