Good News about a hobby of mine..I grow trees inside my home.

Now, I have 3 trees. Two are six feet, and one is seven feet tall. A bunch of other plants too. Now, to make it very simple, these plants did not start out as trees. About 20 years ago, a neighbor gave me, a tiny plant with 2 leaves maybe two inches tall. She said it was an orange plant taken from a seed. It was a cute and little plant, so now it really is 7 feet tall, and since I have seen "orange trees" in Florida, yes it is an orange tree..Never had any flowers but it is a tree in my living room.
..Two other trees from tiny plants. These were Schefflera plants. Pretty small, also 3 or 4 inches tall. Now both are six feet tall trees. Trees are trees and I have always liked walking in forests with trees. I never did expect to have 3 trees growing in my home, but that is what has resulted from my hobby with "plants."
..I have been spraying the orange tree with water every day or so, and am giving it more sun than it has had. I will let you know if it flowers. Yes, I talk to the trees from time to time. Sure, I am nuts, but there are worse things than talking to trees that you grew from tiny plants. Oh, did I say, "I like trees?"

And I love the idea of indoor trees.

3. Yes, I will take some photos of the trees. I do not know how to put them on line.

But I know how to take photos. And I am good at that too. That will take some time. But I will do that too. After taking them, I will write and you will tell me how to post them.
...Yes, I like trees. Been to California and took pictures of the very tall trees, and the very old trees. Trees are good for the world. I will keep in touch, and take the pictures.

6. You can use an online service to upload your photos

and then just copy and paste them here. Iíve used photobucket.com for over a decade, but some people like newer sites.

Open an account then upload your photos. You can also save tons of online images, such as smilies and gifs and photos that you can copy and paste into sites like this or emails, etc.

Also they have a great service to print your photos in many sizes and at really low prices. Iím very happy with all the photos Iíve had printed. They look and feel like real photos. You can also get them as posters or canvases. And cheap!

4. As stated earlier...it started out with house plants. I had no idea these would be what they are.

No..I didn't know that someday I would have bark in the house. Tree Bark???

One other note, I need to take the pictures, because some here might think this is some kind of Trump lie. All of them started out as "house plants" and grew into trees. ( Yes, over 20 years of growth.)

. I just wanted to share this hobby with the DU crowd. and believe me..this is all true. I save old newspapers too. But that is another story for another time.

7. Photos would be nice when you get a chance,... then we can see your hobby accomplishments.

Hard to visualize absent photos.
