Meet My Next Victim

Ikea Yucca

I am sorry, twenty-dollar Ikea yucca plant.

Ikea Yucca

You drew the short straw. Good luck to you, sir.

So you are to house plants what I am to pond fish....instant death.

Pretty much, Michele. But I specialize more in the long, lingering death. Where everything seems fine for a while, and by the time the signs of deterioration show themselves, it's too late to do anything. I've just started buying cheaper plants.

I treat my pond fish like they are princes of the realm than find them belly up in the pond. Price doesn't matter. $25 koi or .25 cent gold I kill them all. The family has banned me from buying them anymore. They are only thinking of the fish.

LOL! And I thought perhaps you had a new neighbor. ;)

Your walls are the same color as mine. And that pot is beautiful.

hahaha, i don't even try any more. my MIL keeps giving me plants and i tell my husband i think she secretly hates plants because she's just sending them to their death. but more likely she just enjoys watching me FAIL.

You'll be fine. It's impossible to kill a yukka. I know, I tried to kill my husband's for years.

I'm doing a little better with this. Oh, who am I kidding, I just found all of mine on the brink of death a week ago.

I say it makes them hardier to stress them like that. Tough love.
