Do you have any 'fighter' plants?

16 years ago

Related to the "how many plants have you killed" discussion... Do you have any plants that are troopers, refuse to die, even when things don't go their way?

I have this fighter of a jasmine, that just keeps getting mites, gets down to about 10 leaves, and I think to myself, this is it, it's done, not coming back from this one. I spray it with soap spray (or nowadays, MiteX) but pretty much think it's done for, and yet, it rallies forth, puts out a lot of new growth, and even blooms for me. What a trooper.

I try to keep on top of things, but the past year I've been having to work 6-7 days a week, and there's only so much you can do. So, suddenly, the jasmine has mites and I still can't get to it for a week... I'm so surpised by it.

Here's to hoping I don't have to work that much this year, so I can enjoy my houseplants and gardening.

So, who else has "fighter" plants?
