“Don’t leave that plant with me – I’ll only kill it!”
Some people find looking after plants easy – but for others, the very idea is a source of fear. These poor individuals have the opposite of green fingers, and can often feel like their very presence is a curse of doom upon the poor potted plant placed upon their desk. They look upon the beautiful green stem and elegant, colourful flowers and can only think of all its predecessors… the ones that went brown, fell apart and withered.
However, there is hope – there are plants that can withstand the attentions (or inattentions) of even the most horticulturally challenged!
The classic plant for the black-thumbed; cactus plants and other succulents can survive for a long time even if you do forget to water them. They do prefer to be watered occasionally, though, so remembering helps them to thrive! They like fairly bright light, so wouldn’t be suitable for a dark corner – you can tell if they’re not in a bright enough spot because they’ll start to lean towards the light source.
