don't water it.


So much to get used to!
I'm watering my indoor plants about three times as much as I used to.

Right now, I'm giving the orange tree (outside) a good soak. It'll only get one of these this month.

Water spare, but water deep is what I am following.

Djinn...what convinced me that I was completely unable to take care of plants was that I couldn't keep a cactus alive, even through benign neglect.

I'm so sorry! It sucks when the plants die. Totally sucks. I hope it reverses itself before it's too late.

I'm your soul sister here... for me it's not cactus, though. It's aloe vera. Only because I haven't been brave enough to try a cactus after my multiple failures with aloe vera.

(Yes... the same aloe vera that you see growing and thriving in college dorm rooms and grandma's house, for pete's sake!)

I can't grow cactus or aloe. I do manage to grow other things, so I try to concentrate on them.

It has to be about 20 times harder to grow anything in the desert!

Don't feel bad it happens to everyone and with dead plants come experience.

Cactus are a complete mystery to me.

If you are interested in cacti you should definitely check out the blog http://waterwhendry.blogspot.com/

Thank you, Matthew. I am indeed looking for local/ desert gardeners.

If I ever get around to some housekeeping around here, that one will go up on the sidebar!

Hi Jenn,
So sorry about the catcus failure. I hope you are enjoying your new home.

I've grown to accept houseplant death. Our interior enviornments are difficult for these plants. We do the best we can, but it happens.
