Are you an Innie or an Outtie
I have a confession to make. For all of my gardening with flowers, and bushes, and growing vegetables, I really can not keep an indoor plant alive! It baffles me that I can kill an indoor plant, or bring it near the brink of death, in less than 2 weeks. They just don't like my light, or my over- or under-watering, or my hovering as they start to shrivel. Whatever the reason, I do not have a green thumb when it comes to indoor plants. However, my sister swears she does not have a green thumb, but can keep an indoor cyclamen alive for multiple years...although I may have killed it by just touching it this past weekend! That leads me to believe that when it comes to a green thumb, we all have one. We just need to realize if we're an innie or an outtie. I'm not talking about belly-buttons. I'm referring to an indoor or outdoor green thumb. If you're lucky enough to have two green thumbs, you get a bonus star in my book! On the other hand, if you've often considered yourself to have been born without a green thumb, maybe you're just gardening on the wrong side of the window. Try the other side and you might just start to see your thumb turn green! Give it a shot!
