I decided to try to grow tropical fruit plants again last year after my failed attempt previously. The failure was due to the fact that I grew them outdoors and thought I could protect them during the Winter by covering them. That did not worked so I planted the fruits in the pots this time and brought them inside the house. I put them by the window where the sunlight shines through over the winter. So far they are doing great. I can't put them outside yet since it is still 26 degrees at my neck of the woods. Anyway, here are the tropical fruit plants that I have.
My Dad taught us that when you chopped the crown of the pineapple, you can cultivate it by sticking it to the ground. That's how we always done it in the past and our backyard has always pineapples. I miss seeing pineapple flowers, it's been a long time.
Another fruit that we always have in our backyard when I was a kid was avocado. It is very easy to grow and is a pleasure to harvest the fruit and enjoy the nuttiness of the fruit.
I have been trying to grow a lemon tree since I got here in the US but it always dies. With this one, I think I am lucky. My son actually put the seeds of the lemon that we bought from Iowa when we had our road trip last year. When I brought it inside, there's only one leaf in it but now, it has grown quite a bit and I may need to transfer it into a bigger pot.
This miniature rose is what my husband gave e during Valentine's day. I always prefer this potted miniature roses over a bouquet because I can transplant them outside and I can enjoy it during summer time. I have plenty of them in my garden now. I have several office desk plants inside and it's screaming for some real sunlight. I hope that the weather will be warmer in the coming weeks. Below is indoor plants that I love and reminds me of the plants that we have had in the office when I was still working in school.
Having plants in the office can really sends clients an inviting environment. It also brings freshness in the office. Some companies hires professional to do this.
