I try. I really do. But I can forget to water them for a couple of weeks. What is wrong with me?
I used to have a lot of plants, but now I am down to four. And they are not in good shape except for one. I have plans to clean them up this weekend. They all need to be cleaned, re-potted and, in the case of the African violet, the pot cleaned. I also have an amaryllis that my sister gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago that I never planted. I am going to try planting that also and see what happens. At this point maybe nothing. BUT... I might actually see a flower in time for Spring!
So here are my poor little plants. Hopefully I will be able to show them to you in a few weeks looking much better.
|I don't know what kind of plant this is. I do know it is very old. It is a slip off of a plant I had in my old house 35 years ago. The one I had died and my sister gave me this off of hers which was a slip off of the original plant.|
|My poor Easter cactus. It needs a good cleaning. It is like a Christmas cactus, but blooms at Easter time. It's pretty healthy, though, so I know I can save it.|
|My African violet has seen better days. Before I took the picture I pulled off all the dead leaves. But it needs clean soil and a clean pot desperately.|
|Another one that I don't know the name of. It is related to the snake plant but has much smaller leaves. I have two babies growing off of the larger part. I think by putting it in clean soil it will do much better. Needs a good cleaning too.|
Here's a couple more 8:30 a.m. pictures for you.
