Plants Move into House

The greenhouse isn't big enough for all the plants that can't survive the winter so a bunch of them come inside the house. Here are two giant Crotons that are growing like crazy. We bought them as tiny 6 inch plants at least 5 years ago and now they are huge. It is lucky since several years ago, I left them outside during the first freeze and it almost killed them. It took a couple of years for them to recover and grow much bigger. In addition the Pineapple plants my wife grows from Pineapple tops are incredible. They spread out 4 feet with pointy leaves (ouch) and are over two feet tall. Also in that picture are last years Poinsettias which are still looking pretty good.
