I'm trying to grow a plant for the first time in about 15 years. I have a spotty track record with growing things, so I picked a jade plant which is apparently hard to kill (unless you totally overwater it). It's also kitty friendly in case Nels takes a nibble. It came with a mammoth tropism but otherwise seems pretty healthy. I read that you can start a new plant from a leaf. I might try that and add another to the pot, so it looks more balanced. I'm hoping to end up with a cool tree with lots of branches like they have at the yoga center. In any case, it's nice to have a bit of greenery in my den.
Behold the super grainy photo of me and the plantling!
