Mystery Plant



Pretty green is what you see.
But what on earth can these plants be?
Is there a reason they stand out?
What is it they are all about?
So take a guess and let me know
Just how it is that these plants grow.
On my next post I'll show and tell
And until then I wish you well.

HI Ginny Is it the Chlorophytum comosum plant (Spider plant?)

SquirrelQueen said...

Is it an Air Plant? I used to have one a long time ago.

Ginny, you are very good in rhymes! The plant look familiar but as usual, I do not know the name of plants! :)

Ann said...

They look like air plants to me. I don't know how it is that they are able to grow without dirt though

Love the photos and the poem. They remind me of a plant I saw growing on trees in the Florida swampland.

I was thinking spider plant/airplane plant. I have heard it called both, with hearing spider plant the most. I even had one at one time years ago.

Sandra said...

I know what they grow on... they are in all our trees and bushes.. I will not spoil the guessing, but you can get them free for the picking down here. but not the spider plants in the cute vases

Amazing how these grow so easily

Ruth Kelly said...

I am terrible at naming plants. I can't even remember the common ordinary plants names half the time. No guesses.

Patsy said...

??? but will check in tomorrow.

Tamago said...

I have no idea but they look pretty in those round vases.
I look forward to your next post!

Linda said...

Lovely photos and cool post!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Your plants look like they are doing well!

George said...

I don't know, but I'm going to come back to find out.

Shug said...

I say Air Plant....or sometimes we refer to them as airplane plants. Not for sure, but this is what I'm guessing.. Could also be called the spider plant.....lots of baby plants can produce off of one big one.

We shall see tomorrow...

I'd say this is a Spider Plant.

Filip and Kristel said...

I have the feeling I have seen it before but can not tell you the name.

Greetings,

Chris Scheuer said...

Hosta? Whatever they are, they're pretty!

Roan said...

Cool plants! In answer to your questions on mine, I don't really have A.D.D., trying a bit of humor, that must not have worked. :) I do get distracted a lot easier now that I'm older. lol

Ruth Kelly said...

I vaguely remember a plant called a spider something.

Chatty Crone said...

You have me stumped!
