Dying-plantDo your family and friends refer to you as the houseplant serial killer? Do they organize betting pools on how many days the new houseplant is going to survive under your expert care? Do the local greenhouse personnel smile when they see you walk into the store?

A black thumb may seem like a curse. Nevertheless, a green thumb is not a gift. It is a skill. You aren’t born with a green thumb – you develop one. Developing a skill involves choices: a change in habits, a desire for knowledge, a commitment of time, and love of the journey. In other words, it requires work.

You may love plants and flowers because they are beautiful. They add a wonderful touch of nature to your home. They make you feel good. However, you may not love the commitment of time and energy necessary to make them flourish, or at the very least keep them alive. Relax; you are not the harbinger of death as the greenhouse workers refer to you. It is not a character flaw. It is simply a choice to spend your time and talents elsewhere.

    I am so bad with live plants. I really wish I had the gift to kept them lush and alive!! I kill everthing!!! Not sure if there is too little light or if I’m watering too much or too little. I’m a busy, full time working Mom and it gets a bit overwhelming. Your plants are beautiful!
