I have an orchid (currently in bloom), a jade plant and I’m not sure what the large one is; but I do know it is 24 years old! It started as a small plant, among others, in a dish garden.

I grew these clivia hybrids from small seedlings.  The company that I purchased them from said that the flower on the left would be red and the one on the right would be double. Years later, I find that I was ripped off.

Nepenthes is a genus of tropical carnivorous plants.  Insects are caught and digested in pitchers at the end of tendrils that are also used for climbing.  Here is an unidentified species shortly after I bought it at Home Depot, for $12.99, in 2018:

Here is its flower in 2020:

Recently, I rooted four cuttings and did an experiment in which I applied a gibberellic acid solution to developing pitchers.  The largest pitcher in the following was thus treated:

@AARPRachelA I really like your plants, especially the climbing one and the air plant. No, I do not have the orchid in a planting medium. I just water it occasionally. 🌱
