    If you bring a plant from the dumpster your indoor air will be polluted.

    The plant I found in the dumpster would retail for around $134 at WALMART.

    It is a 6ft mother-in-laws-tougue with many stemmed roots.

    Awesome plant, however in the two years that I have had it, it has lost a few stems.

    Still, a great plant.

    Any updates, Fishhead?

    You can let the forum know about any goodies you find while rooting through other people's trash.

    I'm on a plant-buying spree. Will also keep the updates flowing...

    No diving involved, these people politely leave their valuables laying next to the dumpster.

    Made about $2500 taking stuff to the local auction house last year from this junk...........little effort.

    Due to the explosion of interest in this topic, isn't about time we had a dumpster diving sub-forum?

    I will bump regularly with plant additions.

    At the same time, I will encourage Fishface to share trash treasures.

    Not too shabby:

    My wife had to remove the large plant near the couch. I kept using it like a litter box. Who can run to the bathroom when your live dog is running the two-minute drill and your looking for that TD for a backdoor cover.

    So does that mean you weren't educated before you bought them?

    I heard that also. They release more oxygen into the air so it helps you breathe easier.
