Plant Update

So, it's been a little while since Bree and I replanted some overgrown (read: neglected) houseplants of mine. After some tough times (mostly for me) it seems that many of the transplants will survive. Some, however, are still looking week and pale. The plant in the front pot of this picture is having a hard time:
Below; To the plant on the left: goodbye. To the plants on the right: hello long, happy life.

This was the first time that I have ever grown houseplants that needed to be transplanted. While I am especially critical of myself in most parts of my life, I feel particularly bad for these little plants that are dying. When my bread doesn't rise properly I am disappointed, but I don't have to look at it every day as it wilts and turns colors.

I guess I still have some stuff to learn about plants. And I'll try to not let this discolor my future of plant-friendly homes.

I feel the same about my aloe!

Must be a twin thing because I grew a whole garden in Kenya that I proceeded to abandon and kill...

Oh well, the people at the grocery store are much better at growing food anyways.
