Winter Growing

Not too long ago, winter finally hit Houston, with the temperature dropping to 35°F. Despite the cold weather, the plants inside the greenhouse have been doing just fine, thanks to our trusty heater!

While most university students are relaxing and enjoying what's left of the winter break, the Horticulture Society at UH has been hard at work, making plans for the green roof, growing plants for the spring plant sales, and looking into other ways to renovate the greenhouse, such as reorganizing all of our supplies and plants and building a raised garden in the front. Here are some of the plants that we're preparing for the plant sales. Since it's winter, growth is slow but steady.

Aloe vera

Haworthia Fasciata



Mother of Thousands


How are your plants doing this pseudo-winter?
