Plants

Each month we will be profiling a category of rare, unique, beautiful and just plain interesting plants, primarily from around the tropical plant world. In many cases, our members and visitors will want to try their green thumb in growing one or more of these plants in their gardens if they live in the right climes, or in their green houses if they have one or perhaps even attempt to create a mini-rain forest in a bright window in their house or apartment.
