Tropical Plant Survival Page

I am placing these pages here for the purpose of helping you make your plants survive. You can grow ordinary houseplants or more exotic plants like the orchids, plumeria, hibiscus or fruit trees.

All of the photos of flowers on these pages have been taken by myself and I take pride in showing them to you. They are my prizes of nature. Bringing a plant to bloom is very rewarding. You too, can grow these beauties of nature. If at any time you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Yes, I know what you are thinking with my greenhouse photos. I do have a greenhouse, but due to the high cost of propane fuel I am forced to shut it down during the colder months of December through March. I have also had problems with freezing, since I can not always depend on the gas company filling my tank. So, I too must bring my precious plants indoors with me during these cold times. I have some plants that touch my ceiling in my home, but they just have to tuck their heads for a while. I grow them indoors until it is safe to return to the greenhouse or outdoors. I really do prefer them to be outdoors, because of the fresh air and the natural watering from the rainfall.

If you live in a colder climate, your plants that you have had summering outside have to come in for the winter. They can do well inside during the winter. They can do well inside during the cold winters, but need a little special care. Then when spring returns, you can once again return your treasured plants outdoors.

These are some guidelines that you will need to follow. This is why I am placing these pages here for you. I have been growing tropical plants for many years. I was once skeptical about trying to grow exotic plants like the beautiful orchid or the plumeria. I have a large variety of plants growing in my home and I know that you can have the same pleasure that I have. You can grow them too. So, lets get started.

What types of plants do you have?
