One of our correspondents, we remember, asked us to furnish an extended list of plants suitable for growing in rooms. He can make up a list from the following: Azalea, Fuchsia, Primula Sinensis, Cuphea, Bouvardia, Chorozema, Geranium, Heliotropium, Roses, (China, Tea, and Bourbon,) Coronilla, Daphne, Cyclamen, Gardenia, Cypripedium, Hoya, Alonsoa, Begonia, Aloe, Ardesia, Calla, Viburnum, (Laurustinus,) Stevia, Fabiana, Lachenalia, Maurandya, Mahernia, Mimulus, Cacti, (the wjiole tribe,) Babiana, Sparaxis, Ixia, Myrtus, Ornithogalum, Olea fragrans, Myosotis, Pentas carnea, Pittosporum, Salvia, Euphorbia, Tremandra, Petunia, Verbena, Pasai-flora coemlea, Camellia, (when you become au fast) Lemon and Orange, Deutzia, Lycopodium, Hyacinth, Crocus, Narcissus, Weigela; but we think we have gone far enough. From the species and varieties of the above you can select more than you will find room for. In this connection, read our article on Room Plants in last volume, p. 409; you will find it to the purpose. Read, also, our article on Annuals in Pois) p. 361, same volume. What is there said will apply to rooms.

We advise you and all beginners to start with a small collection of plants.

Room Plants #1

We had expected to give an article on Room Plants from Mr. Bridgeman, but he loaned his manuscript, and lost it. We shall hereafter give more attention to this subject, a sad bereavement having brought it home to us with peculiar force. It was a mother who, while we were yet a child, first developed and directed our love of plants. The hours of enjoyment we have since passed among them, we can never forget. Whatever of good we may have done in the world, whatever influence we may have exercised in developing a love of the beautiful in nature, with all its rich stores, we owe it all, and more, to a mo- ther's love. That mother, since our last issue, after much patient suffering, has passed peacefully to the better world. The flowers that she taught us to love, the flowers that she so much loved while living, it shall be ours to plant on her grave, that their sweetness may mingle with the sweetness of the memory that she has left behind her. Peace to thee, Mother.
