Hi Judy, my grandmother has a prolific green thumb and recently gave me these two plants. Can you help me identify them? You might notice that on one of the plants, there are brown spots at the tips of the leaves (they appeared a couple months after I took the plant home and placed it in indirect light in a south-facing window.) Thanks!Read More

I currently live in the Middle East, and I'm desperately trying to counteract all the dryness and dust by surrounding myself with lots of plants. I didn't use to give much thought to their care though as they were mostly doing fine before. However, after moving to a new apartment, I was devastated to find that several of my previously happy plants died within a few months. So I've decided to look up online what's available here to see if I can keep the new ones alive a bit longer. My question then is, given that plants bloom in winter around here, when reading your posts, should I translate summer as winter? How about spring and autumn? Do plants even adjust their cycle when being transported from Europe to the ME? Alternatively, do you happen to know a good guide specifically for this region? Many thanks for your help! Best wishes EnikőRead More
