I'm sure I'm not the only person that notices houseplants when they aren't the subject of attention. I think all houseplant growers do this from time to time. You could be minding your own business watching your favorite television show and in a commercial tucked away in a corner is a houseplant that catches your attention. That is how it begins; Houseplant BINGO!
Then you notice the trailing ivy sitting on the desk of the quirky receptionist in your favorite situation comedy. Houseplant BINGO!
The tall corn plant in the corner of the dingy police station as a detective drags a perp in for questioning. Houseplant BINGO!
The palm tree in the office of the misanthropic-yet charismatic doctor. Houseplant BINGO The next thing you know you wasted an hour and a half on the lookout for houseplants in the background of television shows and commercials. So you turn off the television and decide to look up the medicinal properties of a plant you heard about.
The next thing you know you're logging into your YouTube account because you want to leave a comment in a video because the Amaryllis plant growing on the window bench in the background caught your eye. You're wondering what color it was and you want to tell some guy from the Netherlands with the Hindu art fetish that he needs to rotate his Amaryllis once a week so the stem doesn't get crooked like that. You thought you were done playing Houseplant BINGO! but little did you know you had moved onto the bonus round of Houseplant BINGO! where not only do you spot houseplants but you start to critique their placement and husbandry.
And now that you know about Houseplant BINGO! you'll play it too. Maybe not today but tomorrow you'll be sitting in your car at a red light tapping your thumbs on the steering wheel to the beat of the song on the radio when it begins. Houseplant BINGO! There, in the window of that apartment a snake plant with yellow leaves that have sunburn because the owner never rotates the plant. Houseplant BINGO! When you get to work you'll see that 6 foot tall poinsettia that only has one leaf per stem and is touching the fluorescent light fixture just before the elevator door closes on the way up to your floor. Houseplant BINGO!

A year ago I registered the domain www.GardenBloggers.com but didn't do anything with it. When I renewed it last month I decided to finally put it to use. I've started a blog about Garden Blogging and I'll post tutorials on modifying our blogger template and more stuff as time permits. Feel free to look around and test it out. It has more posts than just the one I've put up on the homepage take a look at the Table of Contents for what is written up so far.
