I have tried and failed to take care of plants many times. I am not a natural care-taker. I was even terrible at feeding my cat. I was so bad, in fact, that she learned to move her automatic feeder out of the laundry room, through the kitchen, and into the living room of our small apartment (I eventually learned, and she had a wonderful life!).
So, then….why the frak am I doing this???
So many reasons.
