Do you have plants in your house?

We don't. I am a serial plant killer so I gave up.

  • i love plants but mostly green. They are easy to maintain if you don't let them dry out. If you like plants then there are several that are not easily killed. Just look for ones that don't require too much attention. They are good for the air quality in your home.

  • I feel ya girl! I cannot keep a plant alive to save my life even though my maiden name was Plantz!! lol anyway, I have a friend that insists that I cannot kill every plant on the planet so she brought some over and well, it remains to be seen if I kill them!

  • Everytime I have bought a plant it has slowly but surely died on me within months of me buying it :( I have had an Orchid in my room recenty beautiful flower I feed it 3 ice cubes a week and I have had it for 1 month now and it is alive and well :) Try an Orchid they are beautiful and so far for me easy to not kill :)

  • I had a bamboo plant, finally killed it. Right now, I have a basil plant in my kitchen, it's doing pretty well - but the longest I've ever had a plant is 6 months, so I'm not hopeful.
