How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days:
Andie: Our love fern! You let it die!
Ben: No, honey, it's just sleeping.
Ok, maybe that isn't a fern, but it is a love plant.
How do I know this?
Because I got it on Valentine's Day. From my bosses at work.
Valentine's Day plant = Love plant.
I might, however, be killing the love. Quite literally.
Having never owned a living plant before, I kinda forgot that you have to water it every once in a while. In fact, it took several days and more than one yellowed leaf and withered flower to make me realize that I should probably change something about the way I was taking care of this precious love plant. [Aka: start taking care of it at all.]
So I've started watering it. The tag also says something about "sunlight," but I don't want to get too ahead of myself.
After all, my love plant might just be sleeping.
