    ot Which house plants do you have....

    ...that thrive on neglect

    Money plant and spider plant.

    Our kid has had a spider plant for 36 years. He has had a few spiderlets off it as well. Just got a few moneylets off our money plant.

    Orchids. last years, Not actually neglect but not bad.
    soak once a week. cut dead stem off. keep re-growing. excellent.

    Iíve grown some chill plants on the kitchen window and they have grown really thick and about 4 foot tall.
    Flowered a couple of weeks back and getting taller but still no fruit.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    If there were flowers, probably no insects to fertilise them.

    next time. spray gently. or use a tiny paint brush to dab amongst the flowers. or gentle shaking the plants.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Are they too late to save then?

    I was hoping the flowers would drop off and a fruit would replace it.

    flowers shouldn't drop off.
    once fertilised fruit will start growing from the centre of the flowers. then petats drop off.
    no flowers no fruit.

    Mother's Tongue.

    I completely ignore it. About once or twice a year I might remember to give it water. Keeps on growing
