For my birthday a couple months back you may remember that I really wanted to get myself a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree. But I haven't done so yet because I am so incredibly terrible with houseplants. I know part of my problem is I always buy cheapies from the grocery store on impulsive whims to try to give houseplant ownership another go. And everyone says that you should never buy houseplants from any place other than a nursery. But I don't listen, I keep doing it and they keep dying. I think I am afraid to find out the truth, that it's not where I get the plants, it's just me. But still I want one of these beautiful trees in my house, I'd even be happy with a little fern at this point if I could just keep it alive. But being as I can't seem to keep even an airplant alive so far, I have been showing a little restraint in my desire for a plant that likely costs more than all the plants I have ever bought altogether, and trying to find out how to actually care for house plants before I bring anymore into my house to inevitably place on death row.
Here are a few links I have found if anyone else has the same killer instinct that I seem to have with plant life. (btw all these blogs are lovely and definitely worth the visit.)
