To say I’m not very good with plants is a staggering understatement. A few months ago I bought some bulbs (paperwhites maybe?) from target and started watering them the way the instructions said. Half of them never grew. When Jordan visited for Thanksgiving she clued me in that they were placed in upside down. Nice.
Then there’s this little guy below. I got it for my birthday in November and forgot to water it for a month or so. I tried to water it once around Christmas but the water went straight through. I haven’t watered it since, but it still looks so cute and alive that it has stayed in the living room.
I’m starting to think maybe I’m SO bad with plants I can’t even tell the difference between a real and fake one?
So here is the newest addition to our apartment from Ikea: A ponytail palm. I mostly bought it for the cute name but also to see if I am responsible enough to keep this one alive and right side up.
