this plant didn’t get the memo–

I have a brown thumb. No one told him, though.

dsc_0029.JPGThis silly thing has been blooming over and over again for the past six months at least. I guess it likes underwatering, overwatering, getting knocked around and banged into, and then totally ignored…. THIS is the kind of hearty plant I need! Where have you been all my life?!

  1. Hey, what kind of plant is that? Maybe I can grow it too! Only thing that grows for me around here is ivy and blackberries…blech.

  2. I’ve got an orchid at home the same way. Their supposed to be delicate yet I abuse this one and it keeps blooming. Mother Nature’s way of saying you can knock me around, but you can kill me…

  3. So, um, is the type of plant you need a metaphor for the type of man you need?

  5. Is that a cyclamen? I’ll have to get one if they are that easy.

  6. That plant is actually plastic but I don’t want to say so because it could ruin it for you.

    Wisely, I have no comment on the “type of man” comment….

  7. That’s gorgeous! And obviously the kind of plant I need as well!

  8. citizen, yes! I looked it up and it’s cyclamen. Awesome plant. We just saw a ton in San Diego but it seems to like our kitchen window in cloudy Seattle area, too.

  9. Amazing – I’m struggling trying to keep plants alive on my patio. How do you think it would fare on a rather cloudy balcony in Mar Vista?

  10. I bet it’d do great. Your “cloudy” is like our “sunny.” We saw so many of these in SoCal last week looking good that I think your balcony would be fine. Get a little one and see.
