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

    I grew up watching my parents care for plants. My dad went more for the exotic types and would sometimes grow plants from avocado seeds and the like, which amazed me to watch as a child. Most of my mother's plants flourished beautifully, but sometimes she would nurture...

    Nice and Green!

    I love house plants.  I have a lot of shamrocks and those green leafy things (lol I don't know the name of them!)  My problem is I don't know where to put them!  Right now, since I am decorated for Christmas, I have them on a plant shelf in the dining room. ...

    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...

    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

    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...

    Plant One On Me

    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.

    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.

    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.  :)
