Now that we have had snow, outdoor gardening is pretty much done for me. So I will need to content myself with house plants (and it’s going to be a love/hate relationship, as it always is) for the next 7 months or so until I can get back out into the garden.
I planted this container for a lecture I had last March . As a general rule , I don’t plant mixed house plant containers. They are problematic . But this one has worked out very well . It went outside for the summer and survived the transition back indoors .
And I just love the pilea. It winds its way through the other plants and emerges at the top with these sweet leaf clusters.
I have been very happy with the way the colors of the leaves echo each other as well. This has been a very pleasant combination. I am surprised that it worked out so well .
