We took a late trip to the store tonight and I happened upon their garden section. While I intended to peek at their seed selection, I noticed some sad looking plants that were already clearance priced. I guess they don't do well on the shelf without light (duh). I picked a few out and decided to see if I could nurse them back to health. I got a Nephthytis "Maria" (Syngonium podophyllus) that was $1.19, a Croton "Gold Star" (Codiaeum) for $1.37, and a Dragon's Tongue (Hemigraphis repanda) that was $.93 (seriously, 93-cents, how can you pass that up?).
I have a black thumb when it comes to indoor houseplants. I've killed just about every indoor plant I've ever had from cactus to spider plant. Our current houseplants include a \n aloe plant that is thriving (needs to be re-potted into a bigger container), and two spider plants that the cats got to and I don't think will make it. I'll have to do some research on these, but I plan to re-pot them into bigger containers tomorrow.
