  • Two, african violet, and a dragon tree plant. The violet loves my north window and easy to take care of.

  • 0. In the past, yrs ago before the house I live in now, I have killed them. I need a plant savy friend to come over to my house and tell me where to put a house plant so that it has a chance to live, lol.

  • 18. And most of them are overgrown, but I can't bring myself to throw them out.

  • I have 6. Three that I bought as little pups (LOL) and one that was a plant that had several little plants in it at Walmart. It was only supposed to last a month or so. They are all doing great. I have to add that I have severe allergies and asthma too, but they don't bother me.
