Office Plants Update 01-19-08

I thought it would be fun to provide an overview of all the plants I have at work. At my work, we have L-shaped cubicles with a light source on one end of the cubicle. The size of the light is probably around 3 feet in length and it illuminates that whole side. I use that side for housing my plants and since I have two desks that are adjacent to one another so I have two lights to play with. I take most of my houseplants from my apartment to my office during the winter and take them back in spring when all my seedlings are outside and growing. I just don’t have enough space on my grow shelves to accomodate all my plants that need light so fortunately, I have lights at work. It’s an extension of my grow shelves.

Currently, I have 4 coleuses, 5 spider plants, 3 hydrangea cuttings, a Christmas cactus, 3 african violets, 1 Hawaiian Scheflerra, and finally 1 pothos. The coleus, african violets, hydrangeas, and Christmas cactus will come home with me in a couple of months but the rest permanently stay at work. The Hawaiian Schefflera and pothos are doing super well at work. The pothos was having some issues in the beginning like turning yellow and dropping leaves but it has adjusted well. I am currently rooting some pothos in soil so I can have a plant at home. I am also growing some pothos in a jar of water. It’s doing well and has already produced 6-8 leaves!

I’m excited to see what color blooms will produce from my discounted Christmas cactus. I probably won’t know for a couple of months but it’ll be fun to know. I got another Christmas cactus at Walmart the other day. It was discounted 50% off to $3.44. It has pretty pink blooms. I currently have a red, white, and pink Christmas cactus. I hope this new one will be a pretty white one. Here’s hoping.

Spider Plant Spiderettes are Planted


I layered the spiderettes last night. Most websites say it will take around 7-10 days for them to root. I can then sever them from the mother plant afterwards. I really hope they root and grow. I would like to keep one at work and give the rest to friends and family.

I hope to start some new seeds today. I think I’ll start them outside since the weather has been so nice and it seems like everything I plant outside always turns out better than the ones I have under grow lights. I guess nature is supreme above all! I found these discarded seed trays the other day so I’ll be starting new seeds in those. I’m just so happy that the weather has been so lovely. I can finally be outside in my garden and actually garden! My car thermometer said it was 70 degrees outside. Yippee!
