Green Thumb

1. Jalopeno Peppers
2. Zinnia Flowers
3. Basil
4. Cherry Tomatoes
5. Orchid

Except in my last apartment, this is the first time I have had the right light to grow herbs. I usually have an orchid that I am “trying” to grow. I have gone through several of them over the years. A few months back I had an orchid plant and a bamboo plant, but in a sudden impulse I intentionally broke one and threw the other one away. I still want to get a new bamboo plant and maybe another orchid. I didn’t realize at the time, but the orchid I have now was very poorly maintained and all of the roots were bad. I replanted it and cut away all the roots and I’m surprised it is still alive much less actually growing new roots. Just have to wait and see if I can salvage it.

So now I have the right light, and hopefully the patience and love to grow my plants. If they die, I will buy new ones, but either way, having plants seems to make me feel just that bit more at home.

    Your plants are looking good! I get the urge to garden every year when the weather gets cooler but then a quarter of the plants end up dying in the summer heat because I don’t want to be outside to take care of them 😦

    The instructions say to give them direct sunlight and water every few days, but I have to water them everyday or they wilt and die. Florida sun, so damn hot! Hopefully my “yellow” thumb will turn green this year (:
