Mine is mostly in the shade. The sun burns it a bit. So, I keep it out of the sun as much as possible. A little morning sun and thats it.

I think it would have been taller but I suspect that my raccoon got to it and tried to eat it. He also tried to eat my living rock. He must not have liked the taste of that because he spit it back out.

Stupid coons.....


I have a neighbor who has a beautiful yard and big garden. She has helped me so much.
Anyway...she had trouble with coons in her corn.....she put a radio out there on the rock and roll station (God love her) That worked for a few days then she had to put up some wire to keep him from climbing the fence...Dont ask. Then he hit the coi pond...yep ...got her biggest one. She was so sad. I felt really bad. Now she has 2 live traps set. I sure hope she gets that varment!!!!!!

WinkMaking snake plants bloom


I had 2 large plants in gallon pots, all I did to make mine bloom was give it 6 hours of full sun, and peters plant food, which has more nutrients in it to promote anything you feed it to to produce blooms. Snake plants love hot dry weather and this is necessary with direct sunlight to make them bloom.

Snake plant


Well most people think snake plants are shade lovers, this is not true, they will grow fine in shade, but will not bloom without full sun. I don't know how to add pics here.

snake plants....


As with any normal flowering plant, all plants have some sort of flower, pothos, philodendrons, monsteras all have spathes like a peace lily, but they need heat, light, and humidity to bloom, as well as quite large vines. Draceneas or "dragon trees" even have flowers, but won't bloom in normal household conditions.
