Does the DEV community have any house/garden plants they want to show off?

I will admit I'm not a plant expert by any stretch of the imagination but in permanent remote settings, it can get cumbersome at the home office.

Studies indicate that plants (and other living things that are not exotic wild jungle animals) 🐅

What plants (or pets) are you all taking care of during this time?

Asparagus Fern

My asparagus fern is great in humid places (like the bathroom)!

Edit:: my fern is upside down 🧐 🤷🏻‍♂️

I don’t have any pics available right now...

But I happen to know there’s a community currently being developed on our open source software for plant lovers—one of several new communities being developed.

This one's feed will have much more emphasis on pictures. 🌱

I’m a beta user 😄

Yup! Got a number of them throughout the flat. They make a massive difference in my opinion! 🙌

I inherited this one, when I moved into my new home office.

It even got a new leaf a few days after I watered it.

YUS! I have several plant friends.

This is Maurice the ZZ plant. His tag says he is 'unkillable'. So far, so good.

This is Bruce 2. Bruce 1 found a home with my sister when I moved overseas for a few years.

I am very keen on nature, especially plans. Because of that, when my wife and I started building our own house, we decided to do something eco-friendly and have a yard full of plants and flowers. We approached many companies specializing in doing house plans, but none of them could help us. We were very disappointed and almost gave up. But one of my colleagues at work suggested approaching boutiquehomeplans.com/, which we did. They behaved as real professionals and got everything done in a short period, and most importantly, they did everything quality-wise and matched our demands.

Hahaha, thanks! Yeah, they can be a little annoying. Most of them are cards that are due to come down now anyway 😅
