I  got some house plants today, four to be exact :)  I'm pretty excited about it lol, now lets hope I don't kill them. Do you have any plants in your home?  What rooms? I have one big one in the corner of my living room, two on an accent table in my living room, and one in my bathroom.

Did you read the labels to find out if they need alot of sun or a little sun?  Where we live, i can only grow plants that are shade lovers not sun lovers.

I have 2 big ones in my living room, 1 in my kitchen & 1 in my office. I use Miricle Grow drops in my water.

Yes, I read them :) They need full sunlight. I hope my living room is sunny enough because there is no way I can move the big one around every day lol. I mean I can, but it will be a pain! My living room gets pretty sunny, so  I really hope it will be good enough. I am thinking I will just have to rotate the plant every few days.

for full sun, that means 6-8 hrs of consistant sun.   I want to get a plant for our porch but put it up on the landing which is about 5 feet out further than our porch.  It gets sun where as we are perpetually in shade.

 Thanks! I guess I will make sure they goes on the deck once the sun is no longer shining through the window. I have a feeling these plants are going to be goners lol.
