I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

15 Ways to Accidentally Kill Your Houseplants

15 ways to accidentally kill your houseplants, trouble with houseplants, home, design, home decor, houseplants

Β 

I have admitted my guilt and shame in my lack of potted plant nurturing skills. (see my “fiddle leaf fig” here) Despite my most concerted effort I have a terribly awful black thumb. While I will continue to try and change that black thumb to more of a green shade I thought I would share with you some of the missteps I have made in an attempt to turn this terribly sad situation into a bit more of a learning/comical post. So if you can learn from my terrible mistakes this will have been a success! Or if you even just get a chuckle from my abysmal plant mama skills (I mean how do I keep human children alive?!)

These were in the house all winter and we recently attempted to repot them. (And they get lots of light from the window!) They look worse than they did before we repotted. Cue ugly cry. I’m hoping as soon as it’s warm we can put them on the patio and they might come back.

Without further ado here are my 15 ways to accidentally kill your houseplants. (As I sit here with my hands over my eyes)

  1. Forget to Water Them.
  2. Water them Too Much
  3. Place in bright sunlight
  4. Realize later they don’t belong in bright sunlight
  5. Use top soil to pot.
  6. Repot (this killed 3 plants I attempted to save see pic above)
  7. Forget you have real plants
  8. Accidentally leave tropical plants outside in the winter
  9. Don’t prune.
  10. Prune too much
  11. Buy discount half dead plants thinking you will save them.
  12. Apologize to any live plant that I buy for having to come home with me.
  13. Believe salesperson when then say “this plant is very easy maintenance”
  14. Forget you bought plants and leave them in the back of the car for a week.
  15. Finally accept defeat and resort to buying faux.

Β 

These are plant cuttings that came with these pretty hangers and the lady said “you just leave them in some water and hang them where they get sun” YEAH right! Hanging in the sun, check. Keep water in there check check. I have even tried varying levels of water (this being the most) and look at how pitiful it looks! No idea.

There you have my list of shame. I have, gulp, done all of the above and I am solemnly swearing right now I will do my best try to do better! I really have the best of intentions, potted plants are my nemesis and I WILL figure them out. Maybe it’s the pots I am using? I’m going to purchase some grodan mini blocks and see if I can change that black thumb finally.

And my new faux fig tree! I have since adjusted the leaves a bit more to look more realistic but this was a quick shot I took right after I brought it home. I think I might go buy more people.

Do you have lots of plants? Or are you a serial plant murderer like me? I always love to hear from ya!

    I can grow outdoor plants and vegetables till the cows come home, but place a live plant in my house, and it will be a goner. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not next week, but eventually.

    I kill cactus plants. lol There aren’t many people who can do that!

    Love that metal sign behind your beautiful tree. πŸ™‚

      YAS!!! You and me girlfriend! I have rose bushes that are insanely happy and flourishing like crazy and 2 wisteria that grow like mad when no one else can seem to grown them here. BUT give me an indoor plant and it will die for sure, just a matter of time. I have some succulents in a cute little planter I picked up at HD and the hubs was like “um do you need to water those?” to which I said “I have been!” and they are still dying. I have another that I watered once and it’s dying too! I have no lovin idea what it is. Argh! Oh well, faux is looking more and more like my kinda indoor plant! hahaha

    So funnyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You’ve made me laugh tears!! We are definitely in the same boat and I only have faux plants inside the house.

      lol it’s all true! My husband never lets me forget it every time I bring up getting a plant or look at a plant. My daughter wanted a small orchid in her room, I told her it would probably just die, she says “no mom that’s you, I don’t kill them” haha little squirt.
