Green thumb help!!

26 02 2009

In my whole life, I have only been able to keep one plant alive.  You should know the one I’m talking about, the viney one that NEVER dies and ALWAYS grows…in fact, I have two of those.  I broke a piece off of my original one and am growing another in a cup of water in my window right now.  Since I can keep that alive, why not look like I have more than one plant in the house and have a green thumb. 

plantMy client gave me a plant for valentine’s day.  Beautiful, purple calla lillies-the ones that look like trumpets.  I repotted it, give it water weekly, keep in near the window b/c it needs warmer temps and lots of light, and its wilting, slowly but surely. What am I doing wrong?  Why do I kill plants?  I mean, seriously, I’ve killed two bamboo plants..bamboo!!!  I really dont want these to die so please, any help would be great? 

That brings me to this…do any of you have something you wish you were better at?  Similar to my house plant situation, do you try to do something over and over and continuously fail at it?  Something you wish you were better at?  Maybe we can help each other out!
