Postby anluan82 » February 1st, 2014, 7:33 pm

i already have a snake plant (mother in laws tongue) and a miniature peace lilly, bamboo n a bonsai tree.

nothing bigger then like a foot or a foot and a half tall would be ideal. all i have is self space so they cant be big

(when i say i want something small i mean i want something that will still be small when fully grown)

Well all plants grow even mother in law tongue if you put it outside,
I have a prayer plant(the leaves rise at night)they stay small but you might
have to repot as they divide a lot give extra to your friends. They need
indirect light and water about once a week.
It has dark green leaves with spots, Here is a pix and guide:

If you want foliage plants then Coleus, foliage Begonia, Maranta (PrayerPlant) and Aloe are very decorative and don't grow too big.

If you fancy something with a flower there's Saint Paulia (African Violet), Streptocarpus (Cape Primrose), Kalanchoe, Cyclamen, Sinningia (Gloxinia)

Heart leaf philodendron and creeping fig are both low-growing. You can cut them back as much as you want to keep them small.

What about Cacti or Lithops (like flowering stones).
