Growing plants has never been one of my strong suits. I just don't have a green thumb. Normally within just a couple weeks they're dead. So I wanted no one (especially my previous roommates) to be afraid I will kill all other living organism's that are under my care. This plant is my very first success EVER so I'm very proud of this beauty that is sitting on our kitchen table.
To clarify I do not try on purpose to kill plants that are under my care....it's more neglect then anything. But I have been very good about caring for this gorgeous plant. I just love having something living and wonderful in our apartment that gives hope that spring will come.
So rest easy, (in the extremely far away future) when we have children, they'll be taken care of. Taking care of plants is pretty similar to taking care of children right?......
Just kidding. The plan is to get a puppy next to make sure we can take care of another mammal prior to kids. Smart plan, no? We like to think so (:
