My cousin’s grandma sent me the sweetest Christmas gift this year, which was something I wasn’t expecting! She gave me a Red Lion Amaryllis bulb kit to grow. In the past, I usually tend to kill any plant given to me so I apologized to the bulb as I planted it (upside down) and then waited to see what would happen. First thing to happen? I replanted it right side up and then it grew! The flowers were a lovely bright spot by the window on dreary winter days.
This is now the SECOND plant I’ve kept alive so I think the moral of this story could be…you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, haha! But really, I think my black thumb is turning into a green one and someday I will enjoy having a bigger garden than just 2 plants. 🙂
Are you a gardener? What advise would you give a someone starting out?
