Alert the media, mark this on the calendar… I have kept a plant alive in my sole care for about 10 months now. That is a new record for me. I have had so many plants over the years that last maybe a month or two before they die. My mom could grow anything and make it flourish. Bless her heart she tried several times with a, “Try this plant, it is easy to grow.” I would take it home and water it and give it a little sun and it repaid me with dried up wilted leaves eventually to die.
When my ex-husband passed away, I took a plant home and it ended up at my Dad’s for a few years, one of his care givers would water it weekly so it thrived. After Dad died and I moved into the house the plant was my responsibility. It is still alive! I even noticed a new leaf coming in the other day. It has bloomed a couple of times. I might have gotten a little of that green thumb from my Mom afterall. Do you have a green thumb?
