Interesting! I have faux plants.. Lol. Plastic. Because I don't like having real plants indoors because of the mess they make. However, this article makes me re-think things.

I have a list of 5 (somewhere) and i think it included the spider plant but not the others. I remember White Jasmine, Aloe, and Lavender, - pretty sure there was the spider plant and another i don't remember. The White Jasmine i found were in poor shape so i got an Aloe. It's not the prettiest plant i have - especially after we pick the leaves to rub on owies. LOL

Right now this is the only plant I have, and like this article says, I have it growing in several different places. It started out with one small pot and I trim the vines and repot them. I have also given some away.

That's pretty, Briva!! I have African Violets that were my moms. She brought them from her house when she moved in here. Then left them in my kitchen window because she didn't have a place to put them.
I only keep them because they have purple blooms.
:P

My Mom used to keep spider plants back in the 70's when they were trendy. She talked about the cleaning the air back then!

A friend got DD a terrarium of "you can't kill them" plants. We managed to wipe them out in less than a month ; )
