I decided I wanted some indoor plants, I didn’t want to buy them so I began researching how to take cuttings. Then by a stroke of good fortune I was alerted to someone moving state who wasn’t taking their plants with them. I became their custodian.
I have killed half of them.
While I can happily grow nearly anything outdoors, indoors, I have a black thumb.
Here follows my house plants:
This one I repotted and it is thriving.
The others are not so happy. I have killed the initial one, killed the replacement and am now onto the third one now and it don’t look good!
This is Ralph, he is the original house plant, I have kept him alive (just) for years. He has looked like he will die on at least a dozen occassions. He still doesn’t look amazing….
Don’t know what this one is, it is the only other success.
I blame the cats for this one, they keep eating it. I have replaced it twice. Fairly sure it can’t come back from this…
I would like to have luscious healthy indoor plants. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I know the first few casualties were from over watering. I thought they were thirsty, I kept watering, they looked thirstier, I watered more. They were never thirsty but drowning. Who knew? Certainly not I.
I did buy this one, I like the structural look of its leaves. This too is happy.
The labels on the plants that I have purchased say they are easy to care for. I am finding them easy to kill. Anyone know of a super hardy indoor plant that I will struggle to kill??
