Talk about something you are proud of. Brag about yourselves. Sing your own praises.
I bought a monstera plant in late September, and I was hesistant about it. I have a middling track record with houseplants. Can’t keep a succulent happy to save my life (it’s life? They don’t have enough light and slowly die). But I’ve had a cute lil’ Norfolk Pine for almost 5 years. And I have two, count them TWO, very happy pothos plants. But I really really really wanted a monstera because they’re so pretty.
But I’ve also killed many other houseplants. So this one was $20 and I was on the fence, thinking well damn if I kill it quickly I’ve wasted $20 and killed another houseplant.
Not only has it not died, it’s doing well! It has new leaves coming in! I’ve only had a few leaves turn yellow and die, but that happened after my trip when it didn’t get water for 10 days because I have zero trust in my parents to water correctly. It lives!!!
