I like to think I can take care of plants. But I probably really don’t take care of them well at all.
My first foray into plants started with a cute little succulent arrangement. I assembled it with a lot of thought and care and took it into work. This was years ago. I don’t know if I watered it too much or didn’t give it enough sun, but it withered away (very slowly) over a period of a year or two until it was no more. This pretty blue square pot now holds Baz the basil plant (as named by the boy).
I saw a clever tutorial on upcycling corks into little fridge magnet planters that hold succulents. I couldn’t resist. I had some old corks laying around, dug holes in it, filled it with soil and popped in some succulents. Let’s see how long they last.
One thing I’ll probably avoid are these horrid cacti. Really. I see some serious copyright infringements going on here. I don’t know if anything could be tackier.
I’m curious, what sorts of plants do you take care of?
