It’s a beautifully Sunny Day in Morgantown, WV, and Seth’s window garden is taking full advantage of it! You might not know this, but I am terrible at growing plants. Not just the unpracticed sort of bad that might develop a little skill if given enough time. No, I’m pretty certain that I am the thing plants see in their nightmares.
A mere glance from me at the plant section, as I walk through a crowded Home Depot, will wilt even the hardiest of perennials. A simple touch on the leaf is all I need to make some poor unsuspecting plant lose all will to live. A purchase of a plant by me should be considered illegal as it will only result in a sad brown tangled mess of dead leaves sitting in a pot on a window ledge like an unreported crime scene.
I don’t mean to be so bad with them. I try, I do. I love the style a beautiful orchid brings to a well decorated room. I think plants add a fantastic new layer of interest and decoration that would otherwise go unfilled in a home.
I start out with the best intentions, watering them everyday, moving them to get the right amount of light, giving them fertilizer sticks so that the have nice rich soil. Then, something happens, I’ll forget to water them for just a day or I’ll clip their leaves back too much, or I’ll accidentally knock them off of the kitchen window ledge when dancing about having my favorite cookies ( Hey, there were cookies..) and just like that, the plant is dead and I’m left with an ugly grey plastic pot and a pile of dirt.
Unlike me, Seth is amazing with plants. He never forgets them, and even sets alarms on his phone for the ones that have very specific needs! He has a bonsai tree, a bamboo plant, an orchid, an indoor (for now) baby willow tree, some common house plants, an Herb garden, and clearly a larger helping of green thumb than I could ever even hope to have. The trade off, however, is that even though he can manage to keep them alive for more than a month (I’d be excited about a week really…), he leaves his plants in the terrible faux terracotta containers the came in which looks junky, cluttered and adds absolutely no style.
Plant holders and terrariums are becoming more stylish and elaborate. If you’re lucky enough to have a green thumb (or a loving man who has a green thumb) these pretty pots will add a modern touch to your indoor garden and keep your plants looking fresh and fashionable.
