Most of the larger are dwarf orinocos, red dwarf plantain (thanks mike) mid size orinocos, baby ones include brazil, veinte cohol, med orinoco..and unknowns.

Thanks Hector! Making room for another nana coming soon! =) It never amazes me how disorganized and well..dirty the overwinter room becomes. But after all the shuffling, rotating, moving of plants aroumd., watering, misting..etc...it is no wonder. I thougjt I had 15 or so plants, more nearing 40...amazing how that happens! Do I need any more..no! Will I get more...Absolutely!

Very nice collection. I'm inspired to do more with potted plants and minimal indoor lighting for next winter.

I was wondering why take them outside for a few hours? Was it for bug spraying or sun exposure? I used to drag plants outside from my garage on cool sunny days but I stopped doing it since I wasn't able to see a return on my time investment in taking the plants outside.

Thank you Akula! Geissene, I try to have them outside every chance I can throughout winter/spring when weather permits. Over the course of Winter those hours add up and seem really beneficial to the plants. I really dont have to acclimate much when ready to stay out for good again. When they do go outside for those extra hours I can always see some growth or a pup emerge and pushing through. Although they do "good" over wintered indoors with "ok" light, you can tell they perk up and are happier with the real sun.

so the interweb knows... the plants dont actually come out during the day
this is where they live for the winter
march growth:


pups:


and for comparison here is a pic when they were first brought inside:



and now... they almost immediately grew right back to the size they were outside in the fall and have been hitting the ceiling ever since

what causes bunions, If your bunion is causing pain, your podiatrist may recommend surgery. Dr. Botek says its time to consider surgery when youve felt pain for at least a year. Your doctor also may recommend surgery because bunions can result in other painful foot problems, such as hammertoes, bursitis, a bunion below the little toe, or pain in the balls of your feet, Dr. Botek says. Surgery can be done on mild or severe cases how do you get bunions.
