Not long after the deck was completed, we purchased two palm plants and added them to the ferns and other plants outdoors. It’s time to think about over wintering the palms. This is right down J’s alley. He likes the challenge. There are a few plants he will care for in the basement. There is plenty of light and with the concrete floors, watering and other care is easier than it would be on the main floor.
We decided to try keeping one of the palms in the master bedroom and the other in the great room.
Here is the larger palm, sitting in a corner of the master bedroom. This room is still a work in progress and will probably remain a work in progress for a long time.
We shall see how this little plant project progresses.
These are good old standby Pottery Barn prints from several years ago. I still have framed prints leaning against the wall in this room. I don’t know why I am stalled in finishing the list.
I will think about it over Fall and Winter.
The smaller palm found a home in a corner of the great room. This necessitated musical chairs. The wicker swivel chair and ottoman switched places with the small arm chair.
Wondering what we will do when it is time for the Christmas tree. I’ll think about that another day.
The planter is probably 20 years old maybe older. I may use it for the larger plant. I thought about bringing the large palm into this room. But I like waking up and seeing it every morning.
Do you bring tropical plants through Winter indoors? Do you leave them be and replace them in Spring? I hope J has success with these and the other plants he is bringing in.
