About 12 months ago I started work at a new workplace. The office fit-out is ordinary; beige cubicles for the workers, (mostly) windowless little offices for the big-salary earners. We all work in a low-rise building a few ks out of the CBD. A few nice things about the environment struck me when I was new: the lovely Indo-pacific artefacts decorating the place and the abundance of lovely tropical plants everywhere. [more inside]
I have a large bathroom/shower room. It is a Japanese bathroom where the whole room gets wet and has a drain in the middle. I am looking for edible plants that like that type of wet/humid/warm environment. The room has a large northerly facing window but does not get any direct light. Maybe some kind of tropical fruit?
Can I grow herbs that hang on the wall indoors and make them look nice too? [more inside]

What kind of flowering indoor plants will keep flowering? [more inside]
Fake and edible indoor plants? For my Kittys... Does anyone even make such a thing? If not, what could I make it out of?? Or if anyone knows of any tough non-toxic indoor plants that will cope with feasting, possibly air con and shitty light but definitely the feasting! What would you recommend? (A roster/tag team basis would be perfectly understandable and acceptable...)
What kind of plants should I grow in my apartment? Bonus points for traditionally outdoor plants. [more inside]
I have a venus fly trap which seems to be sickening and dying, and I'd love to save it. [more inside]
New orchid grower seeks advice as he hunkers down for yet another Canadian winter! Can any mefites recommend good books on growing orchids indoors? Actually, any advice about orchids, grow-lights and other tropicals that might grow well in my urban apartment would be very much appreciated.
Plantfilter. And I mean that literally. I seek recommendations for my next potted plant, and I want one which can filter the air. More inside. [more inside]
