welcome to the jungle

i am kind of proud of myself.
i've officially kept
plants alive
all summer. 

(ronnie gets the majority of the credit. 
he was a watering fool in july and august.)

but now, here comes cold weather
and two of my plants are tropical.
so i brought my grandmother turner's old table up from the basement
and tried to make a home for them for the next couple seasons.

does anyone know... will they die here?
it's a south facing window.
my only other option for a big window would face the east.
which is better?

and another (more important) thing,
does it look stupid?
do we like a table full of plants in the dining room?
i can't decide.

sanku for the help.

  1. The best window in the winter is a south or west facing window, so you are good to go there. They should be at least 6 inches from the window and not directly over a vent where hot air would blow on them. Do not fertilize them during the winter months and they may take less water than usual, just keep on eye on them. As far as placement goes, do you use your formal dining room often? If the answer is no, then this is probably a good out of the way place for winter. Mick
