I loved botany. We had 35 apple trees on our property for about 20 years. Horses loved them. Family loved them. Deer loved them. Sasquatch loved them. Everyone loved them. Hell my daughter even wanted to become a botanist when she grew up because of these apple trees. Then one day we transplanted 5 short stacks that we bought from a local farm and a disease spread through our crop. By the time winter came around we still didn't have it fully contained and by the spring all of them were dead. Two decades of joy destroyed by some fat fuck farmer who lied about where the trees came from and somehow didn't understand the spread of viruses.

Sunflowers. I fucking looooooooove sunflowers. They grow wild here, not entirely sure if native to Nevada though. But the wind always blows a few seeds into our backyard, and once they sprout I transplant them into a pot and put the pot on our front porch where they will get plenty of sunlight.

The birds love them, the insects love them, I love them. Shit is so cash, yo.

Besides, the wild ones are much prettier than the big ones you always see people plant.

There's nothing wrong with gay plants.
>>
>>2072881
Oh my gosh!

>>2072884
Can plants even be gay? I thought they are almost universally hermaphrodites, due to the fact that each individual produces pollen, as well as being open to pollination from others. That's why you have to have more than one fruit tree, or if it's a single tree it needs a graft on it from a different tree, otherwise you won't receive fruit.

Isn't it actually rare to have plant species with a binary gender system?

Check Lantana, abronia and viburnum. I think it's Lantana in that pic. Notice the light green parts. I'll circle one in this pic, I see a couple in your pic, one on the lower left.

I don't think that pic is abronia, but not sure your pic is what you're looking for because it appears to have come from wikipedia and you said Southern California.

Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii' - drops it's leaves eventually though.
Pieris 'Forest Flame' - year round.
Molinia ‘transparent’ - you'll have to prune them in the spring, changes color as light hits it.
Fotínia 'Red Robin'- year round.


I prefer the first one as it grows against walls, doesn't take a whole lot of space.

It's less common than to have plants with both genders in one individual, but not rare. Plants that have individuals of only one gender or another are called dioecious, while the more common plants with both genders, either as seperate flowers or as flowers with both male and female parts, are monoecious.

To answer the original question, my favorite plants are of the Araucaria genus. These plants, coincidentally, are often dioecious.

Lately Ive really been into epiphytic cacti; specifically the fern leaf cactus or selenicereus chrysocardium. Here is a picture of their flowers.

Here is a picture of their stems, which quite resemble the fronds of a fern, hence the common name. They are very cool; and I have had much more success with these than with trying to grow ferns.

I got cuttings online from ebay; they root very easily from stem cuttings. Unfortnately I've never seen them for sale in stores where I live (Ontario, Canada), which is still kind of surprising given what a great houseplant they can be.

>>2073832
they're lithophytes.

look into myrmecophytes, you might like them.

Lantana seems to be the closest match, but I'm not 100% sure that's it. I'll try getting a picture of the plant I'm talking about and hopefully that'll help more than the wiki picture.
>>
>>2073708
The problem with heliamphora is that they grow in such specific conditions that they are very hard to grow as a houseplant.
Except if you live in a tropical mountain maybe.

Nah, Minnesota is far too cold for growing monkey puzzles outside. Can you grow them as houseplants like you can with A. heterophylla? I've never seen them grown as such, but I'd love to get one if it's doable.

I do have an A. heterophylla houseplant, and I love it. I bought it at Home Depot around Christmas 8 years ago, and it's exploded in size since then even with living in a windowless office for half that time. If I can do the same with a monkey puzzle, I'll jump at the chance.

I don't think so. I have never seen them grown inside and therefore I think you can't grow them inside.
