    They All Need Saving

    I look at them just as i would look at a cat or dog. They need second chances too. i try to save as many plants as possible. They give us oxygen, don't they? The least we can do is give them a home and take good care of them

    Yeppers

    But no matter what I do, they always end up dying. I water them, fertilize them, but it doesn't matter. They're always dead by mid summer. I definatly don't have a green thumb

    I keep several house plants by my bed.

    I have a couple succulents, a gynura aurantiaca, an ardisia humilis, and a neanthe Bella Palm. My favorite is my chicks and hens though!

    Plant One On Me

    I do really like plants, but plants definitely do not like me. For some reason I can keep pets alive and thriving for years and years, but plants seem to wither in my care after seconds. While my thumb is far from green however, my partner is amazing with plants. She's sort...

    Plants

    I have 3 plants at home and not only I love them but I love the fact that plants gives out oxygen.   Apparently if people talk to their plants, they become nicer.  :)

    Spider Plants Are Amazing.

    I swear one could live just about forever with very little care. The one I have now I`ve had for years, and surprisingly so. I bought it when it was lushly green and multiple leaved. Now it is a sparse thing with a great long offshoot mothering about 20 bright little mini-plants...

    It must be green. I love plants, and I don't see how I could live without growing something. I love growing my own food and to grow my own herbs. ^.^ I love plants. They make my heart Glow.

    Green Spirits

    I love plants and trees. I could never live without houseplants, and I could never live in a tree-less area, geographically speaking. Something about being around plants comforts me and soothes me.

    If Only Plants Could Talk to Us

    I'm glad I saw that I hadn't posted a story in this group yet. It just reminded me that my two plants could probably use some water. I got them from my mom a few weeks ago, they are standing in my window. I hardly know anything about botanica but one of them is a cactus and the...

    Got It From My Dad

    He is a Horticulturist and so I learned alot from him. I by no means have a good green thumb, but I can keep houseplants alive and a moderate decoration of plants on my porch. I love having plants around, they are refreshing and make the environment feel friendlier and cleaner.

    I Enjoy Plants Even Though I Don't Have Much of a Green Thumb
