Happy National House Plant week. Who even knew there was such a thing? But what a great thing to celebrate!
This plant is NOT in my collection under my table–it’s hanging in my kitchen. This is a variety called “Snow Queen.”
These are the plants you may remember from that window collection. The variegated variety is “Marble Queen.” The lime green one is “Neon.”
These plants are real throw-backs to the 1970s when everyone had the variegated green and yellow variety with long stringy tendrils draped over something. Of course I had one too back then. I think it probably had vines growing 5 feet in either direction off the top of a book case.
At my first apartment I had a hook in the ceiling. I had to be 20 feet back from a window–but yet, a pothos grew there, no problem.
And of course, this is one of the plants that NASA tested as an air cleaning plant.
It’s a real workhorse–it cleans formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide (just don’t discard your detector in favor of a house plant!)
That makes these plants both beautiful and practical as we get into the indoor heating season.
