I recently ended up with several plants and I'm not quite sure how to care for them.

First up some moss:Read more...Collapse )

I was hoping someone here could help me, I need the advice of an indoor gardener!

I have a much abused aloe. My grandma gave it to me when it was just a tiny sprig, so I want to save it! When I moved recently it started getting lots of light so it has perked up a bunch. My question is.... from its previous trauma, the lower leaves rotted and fell off, then it sort of fell over. It looks like an "L"... the stem at the bottom is flattened, flopped over and and bare, then it grows up from there and looks like a normal aloe again.

Can I repot it and bury the ugly bare part of the stem? Will that hurt it or open it to rot? Maybe I could put some small decorative stones over it? Advice appreciated. :)

My bedroom is rather jungle like, with various plants Ive grown from cuttings given to me by mylocal community garden centre, however nice this is, I'm no plant expert! I think two of the unidentified are a wandering jew and swedish ivy? However I have this other plant that I don't know, and also I think I'm killing it :(

The leaves have begun to turn yellow, I repotted it as the earth it was in was rather hard, but I have no idea if I'm watering it to much/little or if I should feed it...Please help I really like this plant! It has really purfumey smelling leaves! Here are its leaves Read more...Collapse )

Hi it's been kind of quiet around here so I thought I should post something. I meant to post this awhile ago but I forgot.

Anyway here are several pictures of some plants that I have. Hopefully somebody can tell me what they are:
