      Were any (or all) of these grown with hydroponics? They look unlike anything I've ever seen! Are these available locally?

      A bonsai would surely be one unique house plant. A cypress bonsai could be just the right one to have.

      Really great information on the fragrant houseplants. I've been looking for some hardy houseplants and have already come across several that you have here. This site explains a lot about growing different plants depending on where you live:
