Welcome to faerybutterflye's Member Page
I'm a stay-at-home mom who has a passion for plants & flowers. I seem to be the rescuer of houseplants in my family. My family members nearly kill plants, then give them to me to rescue. I also attempt to rescue plants that have been damaged by being left out in the cold at the garden centers of Walmart & Lowes, from time to time. I have had quite a bit of beginner's luck, I suppose. I've rescued a dracaena fragrans (corn plant), a single trunk pachira (money tree), some type of dieffenbachia, a syngonium podophyllum (dilettante), a monstera deliciosa (swiss cheese plant) & a few Phalaenopsis orchids, only one of which has survived. I've had a small vegetable garden before, but now that I have 3 large dogs, that's temporarily out of the picture! I do plant flowerbeds of flowers around my house every year, usually morning glories & four o clocks & moonflowers & zinnias & marigolds & snapdragons & some dollar store seed blends of shade & sun mixes. It makes me happy to have plants to care for, which is why I love my houseplants so much, because during the sad, cold winter months, I still get to care for something green & beautiful. I'm here on the forums looking to further my knowledge of gardening & houseplants, so thank you to everyone who has advice for me! :)
