What other plant parents say
Probably the cutest yet funny experience I’ve had. I waited to water a few days longer than usual and she just collapsed and fainted. At first I’m like really is this possible I killed this plant by a few days?!?! Well I bottom watered her overnight and all is well. She’s just a little bit dramatic. Lol
