Red thumb


I do not have a green thumb. If I didn’t end up killing three of the Bonsai’s I’ve owned over the course of four years, I think I would have to ask my BF or my parents to buy me this Bonsai Forest for my upcoming Birthday.

The boyfriend bought me a Jade Bonsai just before Christmas, and we left for Newfoundland for 9 days. As soon as I came back I watered it and it hasn’t been the same since.

  1. OMG NANCY WHAT DID YOU DO TO IT?! that is a succulent, those are hard to kill! LMAO :X

    Nancy says: Oh jess! I know! The guy at the store told us it was the easiest one to keep alive. We went to Newfoundland for 9 days and kept it in the living room… and idk? It just died. Like, leaves were falling off slowly. Now Scott says he won’t ever buy me another plant :( It was EXPENSIVE. I’m so mad lol.

  2. P.S. Your rss feed seems to not work. How do I subscribe to your blog?

    Nancy says: You found my site through HTP? I’ve never heard of that before. Also, my RSS feed doesn’t work – I apologize about that. I don’t know how to go about fixing it. Apparently the wordpress crew says I have a duplicate head tag in my php file, and it doesn’t seem like I do. So, I’ve been stuck in limbo for a while not knowing what the next step is!!

    *edit to add. Oh Gosh, I know what you’re talking about “Healthy Tipping Point” blog, right!? haha!!

  3. AHAHAHA I feel a little guilty for laughing at the poor thing, but man what a contrast over 9 days! Have you tried cacti? They’re pretty hardy!
