Considering how nice the weather has become I’m almost tempted to move the tropical plants that I keep in one of our sunny spare bedrooms (actually the only sunny spare bedroom) over the winter to the enclosed back porch or front porch.
Trouble is that as soon as I do that the temperature will fall! The back porch is a bit of a problem area as well. It gets a lot of sunlight and often gets too hot, even during the day time in late winter, so if I move any plants to that room I need to keep the window open during the day to help control the room temperature.
I want to move the plants for a few reasons. We’ll likely soon start to have guests drop in that want to stay overnight and a room crowded with exercise equipment and several plants doesn’t make a great place to stay. Also, if I move the plants I can finally start using the elliptical machine again. Yeah!
I’ve been out taking the dog on longer walks now that the weather is so nice, but using the elliptical a few times a week would probably help get me back into shape a whole lot faster.
Do you have a room in your home that gets cluttered over the winter with items or plants that are normally outdoors during the summer season?
