  • Not really, no. Mostly because I have to keep them in my room, which is the coldest room in the house, because of my two young children. I have two spider plants and a cactus, which are "hard to kill" from what I hear. I don't dare get anything else until my kids are old enough to know not to touch or eat them! lol

  • It has to do with the plants I choose, I've found. I do better with things that don't need constant attention or watering all the time, like cacti, aloes, or hen-and-chicks. I also do fairly well with vine-type plants, like Philodendrons or Wandering Jew(that beautiful silver, purple, and green plant). I have tried more delicate plants, but I usually end up killing them off quite quickly. lol

  • I've gotten better. I've mostly learned which ones are really hard to kill! However, now that I've managed to keep some alive. I'm branching out into others.. My mom has a green thumb so when a plant starts to fail, I drop it off at her house for a little nursing!
