Remember the plants I got a while back? They were so pretty.
I purposefully bought hardy, drought resistant succulents. You know... the kind of plants that thrive is difficult climates like the desert.
Well, this is what they look like now.
Ughhh... I stink at trying to have plans. I know someone will notice that the Aloe plant is still alive and thriving. Let me show you why.
It's a self-watering pot. Yep. It's two pieces. You fill the bottom piece up with water, and place the smaller piece, which houses the plant, inside. The inner pot is made of a special clay material that allows water to be absorbed as needed. Basically, you can't screw it up unless you never refill the bottom portion with water.
So there's my confession of the day. I've officially killed two more innocent plants. From now on, I may have to limit myself only to self-watering pots.
Does anyone else have this problem? If you overcame your lack of a green thumb, I'd be very interested to know how. Or if you have any suggestions for very hard to kill plants, I'd love to hear them. :)
