My favorite plants change on a regular basis, so don’t hold me to this list in a few weeks time. But for now, these are my favorite plants.
#5 – Peace Lily ‘Platinum Mist’ (Spathiphyllum ‘Platinum Mist’) –
My Platinum Mist is still going strong. It is such a beautiful and easy care plant. The leaves are silvery which makes me a dedicated fan. It’s sitting right in the middle of our living room because I never get tired of looking at it.
#4 – Hindu Rope Hoya (Hoya carnosa compacta) – This plant is now five years old and has been blooming and reblooming since June of 2020. And although I’ve loved Medusa since before she ever gave me blooms, I love her even more devotedly now that she’s sharing her big beautiful and fragrant blooms. Yes, my compacta has a name. You’ll understand when you see her photo (below). It’s the only plant in my home that has a name, but it makes such good sense. Don’t you agree?
#3 – Hoya polyneura – This Hoya is a fairly new plant to my collection. I’m already smitten by its lovely mermaid tail shaped leaves. I’m also a bit afraid of this plant because I recently killed one (sigh). That’s a story for a different blog though, so wish me luck with polyneura #2.
#2 – Domino Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum ‘Domino’) – I keep this plant in my IKEA greenhouse cabinet and the result of the excellent lighting it receives there is some truly fantastic variegation. Most of the new leaves are coming in with large beautifully variegated leaves. I wasn’t even aware that a Domino could make variegation like this. I thought they could only produce the little white splashes on their leaves. It’s been a very pleasant surprise.
#1 – Philodendron ‘Florida Ghost’ – This one is finally coming into its own. If you are somehow unfamiliar with this plant, it is highly desired for the ghost-shaped bright white new leaves. The leaves, once mature, are such an interesting shape and the plant is very easy care. It’s really just an all-around great plant.
As always, thank you for reading and take care, my friends.
Mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you.
