Plant update #2

Guess what guys? All my plants died except my Fittonia (Nerve plant). *sniff ಥ﹏ಥ* The only one I did not re-plant. Could it be they didn't like the soil? But its supposed to be good for most house plants.~ Or maybe I didn't do the re-planting correctly?

I read that different plants, just like any living thing, have different needs. That's why you need to get to know the plant first before disturbing its current environment. I clearly need to study more. tsk tsk ( ̄へ ̄)

I'm giving up on huge plants for now. I don't think they receive much light. My window, being the only source of bright light in my place, is just too small for them.

Nerve plants are easy to care for. I water (the soil) once or twice a week and mist the leaves every morning. If I forget, the plant will faint *haha*, they go limp which goes away really fast once I pour water. It grew tall stems though instead of bushy leaves. I read that for a fuller look, you do a plant pinching technique which forces it to grow more leaves instead of growing tall. I also plan to propagate it just to try. I wasn't quite successful with propagating my Jade plant so I'm a bit scared to try it again.

And so one Sunday, I found myself trudging along the all too familiar path towards Manila Seedling Bank. Hello plants! *cue evil music Ψ(`∀´)Ψ * mwahaha

Introducing my new plants!

Two African Violets (blue & violet) and one vine plant shaped in a heart wire (I forgot to ask the name)
