I have a black thumb I guess Babychloe 7 years I have tons of plants in my house. As long as I remember to water and fertilize them every week, they seem to do ok.

I get very sad when one of them dies. bizzybee 7 years Ever since I moved, I have been experiencing issues with keeping my houseplants alive. My loft is big and airy, which should be ideal. But, A/C and heat, extreme sun and chilly winters create changing plant environments. I'm still learning what works where. SoCalSugar 7 years I almost got some today as an impulse buy at Ikea... but then I remember how many house plants I have neglected over the years and decided to let the poor Ikea ones have a better shot at life.
