My sweet husband is always trying to keep the plants in the house alive. However, I am always trying to get rid of the plants in the house - either by me accidentally under-watering them or over-watering them. Or like this morning, I knocked this tall one over, which ended it's life. I actually do enjoy the look of vibrant, healthy, green, blooming, happy plants. Just give your plant to me and after a few weeks or maybe months, it won't look anything like that - it will be pale green, crunchy, droopy and pathetic looking.
After I (accidentally!) knocked the tall one over this morning, I said to Stephen... "This plant has been trying to die for years, let's just remove it from its misery and let it go." Stephen then reminds me how plants keep you healthier and how plants are very beneficial.
It's true. Here is what I found.
