That is a lovely colorful collection. I started a serious collection of orchids after being lucky enough to get them to continue to re-bloom in multiple garden windows my old house had. Then I was gifted a bunch from others. So many that I converted a garden shed into a greenhouse to hold them all. That led to other plant collecting that grew into a pretty big hobby, and one that I attribute heavily to my general sense of well-being. I never mind the hours spent tending to plants, as I am thinking about nothing but the task at hand. I'm a big over-thinker that can struggle with being "in the moment". There is also something about the tending that is rewarding if you manage to start a plant from a small cutting that ends up growing larger, staying healthy, etc.

I relocated twice in the last 4 years, and each time I gave away a good portion of both my outdoor, and indoor plants. Keeping only what I thought may survive the moving process, and the change in climates.

Only houseplant I have currently is a quite old Christmas Cactus that was started for me by my cousin, from a plant her mom (my aunt) had started from a very old plant that our grandma (aunt and my Dad’s mother) had in her house. It was there in my earliest memories.

I’m hoping to be able to propagate a piece or two of mine to give to my daughter and daughter-in-law or grand daughters. I am not a very green thumb person, though. That gene seems to have passed over me.
