Plants are drama queens- 1 hour rehabilitation
Its funny because when i was younger i thought i had the opposite of a green thumb- i was sure i was destined to kill every plant i ever had. I couldnt ever figure out why- i followed the instructions to a T and tried different placements. "Does partial sun mean sorta in the sun or sorta in the shade?!" Id scream to myself while i moved them sometimes 3 times a day
Now my neighbors walk by and i hear them saying things like "how do her plants get so big?" "How does she keep them alive?"
And i can fully say its by throwing away the rulebook and just listening to what your plants actually want because frankly plants are drama queens!
My younger self would have seen these 4 all wilted and lost all hope. "Theyre as good as dead. Why bother?" Now i can look at them and say "well arent you being a bit dramatic here?" And take care of them
These drama queens i forgot to water last night and because i missed ONE watering theyre gonna flail their little green arms and scream 'FINE I GUESS ILL JUST DIE NOW!' all they really needed was some talking to, a glass of water, and a little timeout in the shade. An hour later and theyre perfectly fine. They just needed to throw a temper tantrum for a second.
If youre having trouble keeping plants alive and cant figure out why, just remember- plants are drama queens. Dont give up.
