Various varieties of orchid
Asparagus fern
Large harts tongue type fern
Scented geranium
Several generic succulents
Mystery plant that a friend gave me years ago

I've had most things over the years. Collection quite spartan at the moment as could only bring a limited number when we moved house recently. Particularly gutting was leaving behind my six foot Ficus benjamina.

I dont do house plants. Infact i only have one and i have no idea of what it is and only keep it as my brother gave it to my mum and she would moan at me if i got rid of it.
I dont even cut my flowers from the garden and bring them in as i prefer to see them on the plant.

Aloe vera.
Rubber plant.
Those orchids that are everywhere nowadays.

All survive total neglect. grin

Ficus (x2 - I have taken a cutting which is doing well)
Rubber plant
Curry plant (took a cutting from the plant in the garden and will put it back in the garden when it has grown a bit)
Something else that I have had for 20 years
Spathiphyllum (x 2 - one is a cutting from an old one which was pot-bound)

They are all coping with benign neglect. The orchid and jasmine are doing well in my bathroom, and are rarely watered. They benefit from the high humidity levels though, I suspect.

The rubber plant will never die despite my best efforts.
