Plant

I’m not a big plant person, but last year, I got a few tiny succulents for my office and they really lifted my mood, just seeing them every day. I got six of them and three have survived, which is pretty good given my record.

Last week, my mom texted me from the grocery store:

It wasn’t odd, so much as just random. But she brought it home and I put the little plant on my office windowsill and I loved it! It made me very happy all week to see it there, bookended by the few remaining succulents.

But then this morning I came into my office and found this:

It got very cold over the weekend and I guess I should have moved the plant away from the window. I feel really depressed about it!

I’m a terrible mother.

    I have one of these and it very frequent watering, like every few days! Nerve plant/fittonia if it’s the one I’m thinking of.

      Good to know. I don’t remember the name, but the instructions did say water whenever the soil is dry, so makes sense.

    Ugh, I know that feeling of depression when plant babies die. I recently heard of a friend who gives her plants to friends and “rehomes” them when they aren’t doing well in her home. I thought that was genius and might assuage the guilt I have when I kill a plant. Good luck with your plant baby!
