I Promise I Won't Kill You!

This is a Jade Plant. One of our clients gave us a super big plant, and this piece fell off as they were bringing it into the building. I thought it would be fun to see if I can make it grow. It will be my little project. Now for everyone who knows me, you can all STOP LAUGHING RIGHT NOW! For those who don't know me, I have a reputation with plants and flowers. I tend to kill them.

Brian takes care of all the gardening here at the home front. His flowers are beautiful! They are around the pool, around the deck, and alongside the house. Then we get annuals to put various places in the yard as well. When Elyse got married (at Yosemite National Park, FUN it was!) we had her reception here at the house. We went out and bought lots of extra annuals so the yard would be super colorful with beautiful flowers. It turned out perfect because the day of the reception, the perennials were all in full bloom. Beautiful! Well, since I was in charge of caring for the annuals, they all died! Yep, I killed each and every one of them. But Brian went out right before the wedding and replaced them all. So it was beautiful after all!

He must have faith in me for this project because when I came home from work he had potting soil waiting for me in the laundry room. He even went out and bought that cute little pot so I wouldn't have to stop on my way home in this terrible snowstorm. He even left me a little note, but I'm not telling you what it said ;)

I can do this!

  1. Sending 'growing plant wishes' your way!

    I am right there with you. I made a garden last Spring. I was so excited and pumped about it. 3 months later, almost everything was withered... :(

    Right now I have 3 Palm type plants inside the house for the 'winter' {not much of a winter in FL, but still...} and im shocked at how awesome their doing! {hopefully I didn't just jinx myself}.

    Have a great weekend! :0)

  3. I'm not much of a houseplant grower. My daughter,though, has a fabulous jade plant. She roots them from leaves that fall off, gives them away. She has quite a jade green thumb. Good luck with yours! Love the little pot!

    Now heading out to clear all that snow!

  9. I believe in you, Sher! You can do it!
    I know what it's like to kill the poor plants. Only a few house plants survive with me...And my hubby is the one that's the gardener too, not me! =)
    Good luck! Keep us posted. =)

  10. I would never laugh at someone who shares my gardening skills :) I had a jade plant years ago and if I remember correctly it was pretty easy to grow. It did very well until I woke up one morning to discover that my daughter had plucked off all the leaves :)
