A family photo: my houseplants

MyPlants3Here they are, all my houseplants, gathered for a group photo. My current apartment has few good windows, so I don’t have many plants, but they seem to be happy:

• a garden croton, Codiaeum variegatum
• two varieties of shamrocks, actually wood sorrel, Oxalis
• an “air plant” or “sky plant” in the martini glass, Tillandsia ionantha
• three “lucky bamboo,” Dracaena sanderiana.

I got the Dracaena as gifts when my book was published. (Thank you!) They’re not bamboo at all, but they might be lucky. Although none of my plants seem exceptionally intelligent, they are competent and ambitious, so I keep them under constant supervision. Never trust plants.
