Buy a lava lamp.
In my room I'd like to have a plant. They're just nice to have. I've always had them. But my room is too dark for my current plant so I had to put it in the living room. Can y'all recomend any house plants that do good in less light? My room is just too dead.
Buy a lava lamp.

You can increase the amount of light with some of those "grow lights" from home improvement stores...they're not really all that great, you couldn't grow a vegetable garden with them, but they do help with small plants. Place them close to the plant, leave on all day and then off at night (duh!).
Jim Jarnagin - no not THAT Jim Jarnagin, the other one.
Yeah, he grow lights don't look pretty, though (for lack of a more masculine word). I'm liking the Chinese evergreen idea! I like evergreens!
And yes, Brian, I already have a lava lamp.

Somehow, in some way, that seems like an insult. Don't know why.

We replaced it with a metal coat rack from a building on campus, painted it brown, and stuffed some branches in the holes coming out the side. It was pretty funny the next morning as we watched one of the girls watering the coat rack. It took them quite a while to figure it out.... God bless sorority chicks...oops, I mean broads...oopps..sorry..I meant dames. Yeah that's it, dames.
