I didn't have much luck with houseplants when I attempted to completely fail them as a naive early twentysomething. I managed to kill a pothos plant, which are, supposedly, impossible to kill. I also killed an adorable little succulent I got as a wedding favor by overwatering it - my love was just TOO MUCH.
However. We now own a house. We have a dog. Dogs smell bad sometimes (so do we). Plants supposedly help purify the air in your house. And as such...
I've decided that it's GAME ON, HOUSEPLANTS.
I'll keep you updated on how this goes. They have a lovely south-facing window, and I only water them when their well-draining soil is dry two inches down. I'm trying really hard. I've had these for... four months?
We'll see how it goes.
