SeaSpray Quote

"If there was a DYFS for houseplants... all my plants would be in foster homes." ~SeaSpray~

I just said this over at Dr Keagirl's Urostream blog in response to her post regarding her concern in killing her office plants. For anyone that may not know, DYFS stands for the Division of Youth and Family Services.

Caring for indoor plants is more tedious than for outdoor plants. Plants are supposed to be in their own environment, that's why they find it hard to survive in an indoor setting. Just dropping by to say hello.

Hey Mel! Yes that is true although at least the indoor plants don't have weeds or BUGS trying to bite us. :)

Everything I've read says you can't kill a snake plant. I've had two die on me. I've had pretty good luck with Aloes and Agaves, and I have a prickly cactus that's doing okay but, really, how do you know if a cactus is dead?

Hi Platypus -They are hard to kill. My beloved one given to me by my son is existing with a little cluster of dirt that doesn't even go across the bottom of the pot and I see the roots. *I must buy some potting soil! And a new pot!

I do have a half dead cactus. The leaves are totally brown and shriveled up and there is no mistaking they are dead. But...the other half looks good. *Must cut dead part off cactus..mental note made. :)

Mine would be in foster care as well!! Though I am happy to say I've had one plant for about a year now. I think that's a record for me.

Hi Jenster-congratulations! ;)

Hey I heard great news today!!!!!!!

My girlfriend who had the lump removed saw the surgeon today and it wasn't cancer! Thank you very much for your prayers and your support. :)

Her breast is real bruised but other than that she is doing great.
