Plants can be such delicate little things, can’t they? I suppose that’s why I’m not very good at taking care of them. They always seem to die on me, no matter how hard I strictly I adhere to the instructions that come along with them.
Take this little orchid flower as an example. I swear, I watered it exactly as the instructions said: three ice cubes once per week. And yet, after less than three weeks, the flowers are drying up and falling off. I’ve tried moving it closer to a window now, in the hopes of giving it more sunlight. It really wasn’t getting much in its old home on the shelf above my fireplace.
So, though I’ve lost a few flowers off my delicate little plant, I’m going to keep trying to bring it back to life. Let’s hope I succeed.
