A New Pet ...

I have never had a green thumb -- one could take a look at my front yard and notice this. I don't keep plants alive for very long ... and have never really been that interested in it. Joe and I were shopping at Smiths the other night and I found a nice plant that was just calling my name. It was only $10 and I thought that it was worth a shot ... let's see if my luck has improved ... so I bought it! As we were driving home I noticed a new branch that was growing from the top. I have checked it every day to see how much progress it has taken. I am now obsessed with my new little plant ... and want to get another one. I have been looking on the internet to see if I can find out what type of plant it is. So far I have had no luck ... so in the mean time it proudly sits on my kitchen table getting much love and attention from me. I am pretty sure that my husband thinks that I am crazy!

I don't know the name of the plant...I used to have one. I managed to keep it alive for about 3 years and I don't have a green thumb either. I hope to get some house plants when we move. Good luck!

It's a chefflera! (Or it could be a dwarf chefflera.) Either way, they are so super easy to keep alive. If this one dies, you definitely have no green thumb anywhere in you! I have two of these guys and like them a lot.
