White and purple African violet in bloom.

 “Plants in my Apartment” series

As the name suggests, it is about plants I grew in my college apartment.  In these posts you can expect to find general background information as well as growing information for the plants listed, basically a profile of the plant. I have tried to be as thorough as possible while still keeping the information simple and useful. I am also not an expert on any of these plants; I’m just collecting information about them. Before you dive in, I suggest you read the introduction, but it is not necessary by any means.

Sweet basil

Lemon Balm
Key Lime
White Soul Alpine strawberry
Black Cherry tomato

Moving out of an apartment didn’t mean that I stopped being curious about the plants in my garden, only that I had many more options available. These posts are done in the style of the Plants in my Apartment series but may be about plants that aren’t exactly apartment friendly.

  1. Wow, I can learn a lot about plants from you! 🙂 I love household plants, but do not have the diverse experience you seem to have with them! I am just now branching out beyond the trusty ivy hanging plant to a peace lily and my orchid, I am not quite sure it will bloom again in the spring.
