Listen in, listen Ian!
I want some greenery in my house, but I have the least green fingers ever.
What are some totally unkillable house plants?

lovely cactiiii.
Spider plants.
My flat is too bright for most plants so it's full of spikey succulents which bite you when you go near them. African violets seem to be quite hard to kill. And peace lilies.

Cacti. I have three barrel cactus-es in my loo, and the only thing I ever do to them is water them once a year and dust them at the same time.

I've discovered that if you water them like you would a normal plant (which in my house is when they go dry) they grow HUGE.

And, luckily for mine, it also makes a fuss when you've over watered it.

I thought it was pronounced "you-cass"? And what do university admissions have to do with evergreen plant-life?

That was funnier in my head than it is on the screen.

No, no - I have even less greenerer fingers than you.

I've killed spider plants, cactii, rubber plants - I could probably kill artificial plants, too.

Aloe vera. I have failed to kill the one I was given when YB was a baby despite over-watering, under-watering, and letting it get pot-bound. It's still going strong and I pull off a leaf now and again to put on kitchen burns.

For heaven's sake, why?
Get a lizard instead.
