#graveyard I believe Iโ€™m developing 2 sets of thumbs a black and a green thumb and these would be the plants that I need to stay away from in the future! Yikes ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ณ
I think we all have plants we wouldnโ€™t get again. Sorry about your three that didnโ€™t do well. ๐Ÿคจ
@Pegster 100% agree! There are plants I hate that others love.
@Pegster @Karah86 Thank you both. Thank goodness that there are fewer that didnโ€™t make it! Well at least the ones I havenโ€™t thrown out๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿคช
I started buying plants based on looks and not on how easy or difficult they would be to takecare of! That was my first mistake; now I look at what the plants need to thrive and if I like the way they look I get them I hope that this strategy works outbetter in the long run!
@Ms.PersnicketyPants Same! Looks aren't everything especially if they won't make it in my care anyway. Now I try to stick with lower light and drought tolerant plants....although I still fall for good looks sometimes ๐Ÿ˜…
@PlantEsteem Thatโ€™s exactly what I am doing low light (eventhough I have over 4 grow light) and drought tolerant plants. But every now and then another type sneeks in๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜Š
