(Our new and lovely Ficus elastica in a very bright red pot)

This past weekend Annah and I traveled up to the Twin Cities once again and stopped by Linder's Garden Center where we purchased a few more plants. We purchased a new and very vibrant Ficus elastica ("Rubber plant").

(Philodendron 'Moonlight' )

We bought this Philodendron 'Moonlight', although I'm not positive of this ID since the tag only said "Philodendron Hybrid", so if any of your readers can help us verify or correctly identify this plant, we would be very thankful. Edit: Numerous people have confirmed that it is indeed a 'Moonlight'. Thanks!

(Our Sansevieria zeylanica.)

We also purchased a new Sansevieria, which according to the helpful folks at the Sansevieria forum at Gardenweb, and this link, this plant appears to be a Sansevieria zeylanica and it is a very delightful plant.

We were also able to purchase some sprouting seeds, including alfalfa, chickpeas, adzuki, and mung beans. We enjoy these sprouting seeds because they only take a few days to grow and they provide a tasty and nutritious addition to any type of food we are eating! The first batch of seeds that we sprouted were left to grow maybe a day or two longer than they should have, as you can see in the picture below, but the new seeds should turn out better and taste even greater!

(About a month ago we grew our first batch of Broccoli Sprouts and Mung Beans which both grew a day or two too long.)

    Hi Jordan,
    Welcome to the garden blogging world.
    I have a Sansevieria trifasciata that looks just like your sans. I wrote about it on Jan. 19. I wanted to try it in my garden as I always grew these as houseplants or as patio plants. So far, it is doing very well. We don't have the ideal climate for it, but these are tough plants!

    I love "Moonlight"...I used to have it as a houseplant, too...wonderful colors!

    You got it right; it's a 'Moonlight.'
