Will I be able to keep you alive? Your odds are not great. Casualties so far include Miss Lavender and Miss Olive. I’m afraid I’m no good with indoor plants. Please hang in there, I will do my best to care for you!
This mini “tree” is so cute!! I’m sure you’ll do fine with this one! It’s too cute to lose!
Hej, Benita! This reminds me the Central park, because of the NYC poster 😉
What about Mini&Bonus? will they leve it grow? Or do they play cool?
Wish you the best!
Good luck! It’s very beautiful! I’m no good mother to my plants either… sometimes I keep them even after they’re dead. Now i’ve got one Zamioculcas tho, that seems to stay with me, no matter what. I’m grateful about it.
Have a nice week,
I also have a nil survival rate with plants – I forget they’re there and need tending. Perhaps your more plant aware readers could remind you from time to time to check on it 🙂
Good luck! I also have so-so luck with indoor plants, and am considering doing away with them when we move and opting for only cut flowers inside. Those are supposed to die eventually!
They’re not interested in plants which is a good thing! Unless it’s catnip or cat grass, both of which they love.
It’s not so much that I forget about them it’s more that I’m not really sure HOW to care for them. Enough water, not enough water…
I’ve considered all plants indoors to be temporary, including orchids, but I’ve always wanted a little tree but never had any luck before. The staff in the store told me this was an easy one. We shall see…
Ma cats ruined all of my indoor plants playing with or on them. Without cats those plants would survive longer but not forever, I have very limited talents in indoor plants care.
sigh…I’m not good with them , but hope springs eternal and I keep trying! ?Your little tree is really cute. Good luck!
What kind of tree is it? I can’t really keep indoor plants since my indoor cats eat them. I do bring in my bay tree and my rosemary every winter )they would not make it here in Wisconsin) and they do fine in our basement–near a window but very very little light. I just lightly water them every two weeks or so and let them rest up for summer. The bay has made it through six winters; the rosemary three.
It’s a myrtle.
Good luck. I am afraid I have killed every myrtle I have owned–indoors or out.
Uhoh! That doesn’t bode well…
Unfortunataly I’m not good with indoor plants either, so no adwise from here…
But I wan’t to ask you about the New York poster. Did you by it in New York, or do you know where to buy it online? I´t looks just fabulous – also with the wooden able. I´m going to NY for the first time in november, and I am so exited!
Find out more about the poster in this post:
You will have such a great time in New York. It’s a great city!
Vilket vackert litet träd. Lycka till!
The delivery expenses is very high, but I think it must be a “must have” anyway 🙂
I agree – a must have 🙂
If you already had plants which died then I can say they are not for you or you just don’t have the guts to have them. :D… anyways, hope your new tree will survive in your hands!
I just returned from NYC! It was sooooo much fun! I went to Muji and thought of you as I bought the NYC handkerchief. As a present for my sons, I picked out the wooden collection of NYC buildings and they love them. Now I’m wondering if I’m going to go all Chez Larsson and buy this poster, too.
Well, Lavender and Olive were not house plants, so that is probably why they didn’t fare well. Myrtle may do better outdoors in a shady area during the warm months, and indoors in a sunny window when the weather turns chilly.
I know… I keep seing them indoors in magazines though and it looks so pretty…
As for the Myrtle, it’s odd because the sales person told me it didn’t like a sunny window and it would do better more shaded. Oh well. We’ll see 🙂
Ha – I followed this link from your ‘link within widget’ and I just thought I would tell you that I also have a “Miss Lavender that I’m trying to keep alive!”
Don’t know about Myrtle. But you might try a Ficus.
They will drop a lot of leaves when you bring them home, because they will grow new leaves specially designed for the light where you put them. (So you can’t move them around a lot, unless you are prepared for a lot of cleanup) They do like a bright location, but your house seems full of such.
Once they adjust, they are very forgiving. Water once a week, drench the top of the soil fully. Let dry between waterings.
