I have been collecting a variety of cacti, succulents and other various house plants for the last 5 years. I will be continuously uploading pictures along with botanical names.

Please feel free to post your own pictures as well!

Probably.

I heartily approve of this thread however. I am going to get a Venus Fly Trap soon. They seem fairly easy to grow and I think I have a perfect spot for one. It'll be happy and useful by the rear kitchen window.

Fuck off, this is a thread for legitimate house plants not pot porn. Go post in the "dude i love talking about weed online because I'm socially stuned" thread.

Back in topic, I make planted terrariums/aquariums for my animals I'll post some later.

What is a good fairly large houseplant that doesn't require sun?
Asparagus Fern. Jade plant is also really good assuming you get at least some indirect light.

Personally I'd just like to learn how not to kill orchids, they're ideal if you can get them to live a few months.

Thanks, always wanted some house plants but don't feel like heating up the house by 20 degrees during summer by letting sun in.
Take a look at Sansevieria trifasciata or "Mother in laws tongue" great looking low light plant that gets pretty big.

It's Hardy as well just don't over water it.

Thanks a ton everyone, some really good choices. The house has been bothering me as too sterile and clean and this is exactly what I want.

Hey, weed is definitely a legitimate house plant. Stop being so miserable.

I've got a fiddle leaf fig tree that takes up all the sunny real estate but I want to get more. Need to find a lot of plants that don't need sun.

Its a pretty cool experience to grow plants. Flowers are pretty rewarding. Here is my house plant, a tropical hibiscus that can't survive outside here. In the winter it tends to grow some forks and a bit of length 1-2 inches in various branches but does not bloom during these months due to lack of sun power. I keep it about 6-8 inches from a window in my home over a one of my heating vents, and I have a privacy blind which I lower (its one of those accordion with air pocket style). Which keeps it from getting seared near the window during the night. It spends about 4.5/5 months of the year fully outside once the night time temperatures don't drop below 50 regularly.

Anyways growing shit rocks, if you are a city person and have grown up in the city all your life. Growing some plants is not a life experience you should forgo on this Earth.

This is the winter growth I get on limited sunlight months. You can see the leaves aren't near as robust as they become when it powers up to over 9000. That is some cat hair as one of my cats uses the pot to reach the window sill.
