Welcome Back!  To me!  My last post was in April.  I have many excuses.

2012 wasn't a great year for many reasons but I have high hopes for 2013.  I'm going to start the year out with a project involving my indoor plants.

My poor indoor plants suffer from benign neglect.  I love to garden, I don't love tending to my houseplants.  Over the years, I have gotten rid of most of my leafy plants and replaced them with cacti and succulents.  The problem is I don't know what my plants are.  I want to take care of them and provide them with the proper environment.

So I need help. I am going to post pictures of all my houseplants here and hope that some of you know what they are.  Sean is no help - most of them came from him and he tells me "that's a cactus.  That's a succulent" - thanks a lot!

So here we go.

1.  What is this?
Spotted leaves with gold and red.

2.  This is a Peace Lily
3.  Prayer Plant
4.  What is this?  Sean says some sort of Aloe

5.  Cacti!  Grown from seeds, from a kit the kids gave me years ago.  What kind?
