: Thanks, Newt ;)
: I have quite a few plants that see me through these northern canadian winters... snake plant (too nice to be compared to my ex mother-in-law's forked tongue, LOL!!), aloe vera, english ivy, cyclamin and voilets, among others. I have grow lights and shelves so I have half of them under the lights and display the other half and then rotate once a month :) I don't think I could ever have too many plants! I'm all excited because I've started a "naked tree" from seed as well as a dwarf banana tree. Keep your fingers crossed, they're starting to look good :)

Hi Jenna,
Ok, now you've got me stumped, pardon the pun. :) But, what in the world is a 'naked tree'? The only plant that comes to mind is a euphorbia tirucalli, often called a pencil cactus. It's really not a cactus at all. Is this it?

Another you might like for your home that can go in the ground for the summer would be Oxalis regnellii - purple leafed oxalis. It gets lovely light pink blooms.

I do love banana splits! :)
