I have some house plants that I do not know what they are. I have never been a green thumb and I recieved these plants from two funerals that were in baskets together. I have seperated them out but am not sure that I am caring for them correctly. I know that one is a wondering jew, one is a type of prayer plant, and i believe one is a type of angel plant. It is very odd leaves with speckled dots. Right now I have all the plants on my sun porch and they are doing great. I keep them watered. Is there a way to send you pics of the plants and you help me name them so I can learn how to care for them once winter comes. I have to bring them in the house because the sun porch is way to cold for them in the winter.

To all of my readers!!

I mentioned this earlier this year, but comments I'm receiving are not seeing it. I'm honored that my blog has gotten so popular, however I am having an extremely hard time answering all the comments. I will try my best to answer, but will not be able to get to everyone. I am a mother of two children under the age of 6 and work full time. I apologize for not being able to answer everyone. I truly wish I could. I am still here, and I do publish all the comments.

Thank you for reading and I enjoy all of you who love plants as much as I do. I just wish I could help more people out!

Thank you!

Hello Drayas, Veldonna here

I need to know why my ponytail palm (trunk) is splitting all over in little splits? is this normal? Also I'm starting to see the roots from the trunk coming out of the dirt. I thought roots grown down and not up? When I first bought this plant a year ago the trunk was fatter with a lot of leaves all on top, but now it's lost a lot of it's leaves and the trunk is skinnier? What could be wrong? All this happen within a year I've had it.
