I am one of those people that occasionally brings home a plant with an eager grin on my face and a mind full of thoughts of how this time it will be different. I loudly announce every time (both times?) I water it and then skip ahead two weeks to tossing it out so I don't need to be reminded of my failings. I've somehow managed to keep a toddler well fed and cared for but houseplants should not be left in my care.
Co-workers at Breather will scoff reading this as I am the biggest champion of having plants in our spaces. I really do believe that they tie a room together and add a much needed element of life when you're designing public space. So I've compiled a list for you fellow black thumb people of plants that even I can't kill. Good luck!
