Not really into houseplants (as I prefer garden plants much more), but I do have these and I wouldn't mind selling most of them away (especially those that cannot thrive outdoors):

*ZZ plant
*Arrowhead plant
*Golden pothos
*Chinese evergreen
*Prayer plant
*Weeping fig
*Wandering Jew
*Inch plant
*Dracaena (song of Jamaica)
*Lucky bamboo
*Swiss cheese plant
*Hoya

And probably some few others...

I forgot, I have had a zamioculcas in a corner for years. It it a lovely, carefree plant. It only gets watered about once a month, and doesn’t get leggy. Beautiful glossy green foliage.

I wish I could grow house plants, but there's no place they would be safe from my boy cat. He will eat any plant that's indoors. He's even eaten rose bushes that I've been unpacking on the enclosed porch, thorns and all.

Ouch! Though I know what you're saying as cats will try to get into anything.

African Violets, Norfolk Island Pine, several cactus and succulents, several Christmas Cactus, and several India Banyans. Also, in winter (now) a Meyer Lemon and a tropical Hibiscus.

I bought 2 small aloe vera plants and they have grown so much. I call them Cleopatra from the Addams family as this thing is HUGE. We recently renovated our family room and it fell over breaking two of the stems off. Boy I didn't expect it to stink so badly. LOL

I have 5 African Violets and 9 Christmas Cacti, Are you aware there are different types of Holiday Cacti? Most you buy in the stores say Christmas but from the shape of the clade's it may or may not be a Christmas Cactus.

From this chart I have 9 Thanksgiving Cacti even though the label said they are Christmas.

I bought a snake plant but will add other plants this year.
I already had a lucky bamboo that is several years old.

yea, it's looking like succulents are going to be my mainstay although I have a beautiful pothos, a super long english ivy and a wandering jew/purple princess in hanging planters.
Had a majesty palm and a hawaiian schefflera that died slow and torturous deaths over the winter. I think from the wood stove heat (sucking moisture out of the air) and possibly lack of light. I'd purchased expensive, huge ceramic pots for them that now sit empty.
I do have a cane plant that is still doing fairly well, but like all others I've ever seen, the tips of the plant are drying out and it's looking a bit scraggly.
Others: snake plant, small rubber plant, elephant bush, breynia (cute), a couple different pepperomia, a jade plant, philodendron, some cacti, string of pearls (I love this and want to get other varieties of the 'string') and a couple of african violets I inherited.
I intend to repot them all when warm weather arrives and try to mitigate the little flying bug issues I had w/out having to put diatomaceous earth in the soil. The hanging ones are going to need new pots.

I started this collection at the beginning of COVID since I used to always have houseplants earlier in my life. I do enjoy them. I move them outside during the summer.
