    i'm not sure why i felt the urge to create a whole new thread for this. i just can't work out how to change the name on the old thread ( help me name my potted plant ) if anyone can tell me how to change the name of the other thread, then i'll merge the two .

    anyway, as requested, i am announcing that my potted plant (identified this morning as a chamaedorea elegans, whatever that is) will, from this day forth, be known as:

    the very leafy henry/henrietta twitchy ramroff bean of the jungle.

    ...and here is a picture of the naming ceremony. due to the small size of the potted plant, i'm afraid i had to abridge the name on the hat a bit, but i'm sure that bean (as i am calling the plant for short) understands.

    if anyone wishes to congratulate the very leafy henry/henrietta twitchy ramroff bean of the jungle on its new name, comment on the choice of name, or even offer his/her services as godparent, then this be the thread to do it in.

    it isn't submerged! they are on top of the soil, to make it feel pretty (and therefore happy).

    no. i only got it a couple of days ago. but yesterday i decided to name it (in another thread, which there is a link to), and i decided to have a namig ceremony

    to cut a long story short, it now has a nam and a hat and, if it survives the summer, it will go to university with me to live the high-life.

    i'm actually bored enough that, despite the facetious nature of that comment, i am finding it to be quite a tempting idea.

    i know someone who made a website about his "son," which was a bus-ticket called junior.

    you should keep its pebbles moist. A lot of indoor species respond well to this. I know I do.

    dunnae worry, Aitch, those pebbles are always moist, i make sure of it. and, since you seem to be the expert on plantlife, how well do you think it would respond to me trying to get it drunk (as suggested by namesake ramroff)?

    Lirael Abhorsen (what happened to sabriel btw?), you are now official godmother, especially since you gave it one of its favourite middle names. hopefully, it will last longer than the onion.

    Here is a poem about drunken plants, which might prove edifying. I am assuming that you do read to it.

    And here is a good link to care of indoor palms:

    I remembered that I'd heard of this, and just found it. You've missed it for this year, I'm afraid:

    With relatively little amendment, if you really have to plaster your plant, you could adapt it to

    "Take your Houseplant for a Wallbanger" Day

    or

    "Take your Houseplant for a Wasting" Day

    lmao. where on earth do you find all that stuff?

    i haven't got any cider, though . hmmm...i wonder how well bean will cope with malibu...

    and of course i read to it! :eek: i am horrified even to consider that there may be some plant owners cruel enough to deprive their charges of the joys of literature!! needless to say, bean very much enjoyed the cider poem.

    doesn't it just

    and i fully intend to. bean needs to see the world!

    well, kind of. i am aware that there are strict travelling regulations on plants and stuff in some places, so i'm thinking i might just have to take a laminated photo of bean with me, whilst leaving him/her in the care of one of its godparents (i.e. my mum. although she doesn't know about her new status yet).
