I have a black thumb. I mean Black. I have killed every plant I have ever tried to keep alive. So you might wonder why I bought a pretty Poinsettia yesterday at Trader Joes. Well, because I love a challenge. As soon as got it home I called my neighbor, and occasional sitter for the girls, Ms. Elizabeth, for back-up. She runs an indoor plant service and I just knew she would be perfect for helping me in my quest.
I didn’t include ALL of her tips in this video because I’m also challenging Theresa of RockOnMommies.com to a “Plant Off” and I don’t want to give away all my secrets. I want to see if she can keep her poinsettia alive longer than I can keep mine alive. So my goal is two fold: 1) To have this poinsettia last me at least two months and 2) To have this poinsettia last longer than Theresa’s.
