The maple tree was a 'grow your own tree in a can' type gift that was in my Christmas stocking. Only I don't really have anywhere to put a maple tree, so I'm going to experiment with making it into a bonsai tree! I'm especially proud of my peanut, it's about my 4th attempt to get one to grow, rather than go mouldy and die!
The avocado pip is in this cool little vase, which used to hold a hyacinth bulb, it's just the right size...otherwise you can use a shot glass or put some toothpicks into the pip and use them to prop it up in a glass or jar with a wider mouth.
Do you have any exciting houseplants??
