I have been wanting some house plants lately to brighten up the space.  I always kills house plants, always. I decided I didn’t want to make a huge investment this time, as my track record has shown I don’t have a green thumb.  I decided to use some pots I had kept.  For the new plants, one is a clipping that fell off a friends Jade Tree, the other is a wild plant that I saw while hiking and it’s roots had come lose so I thought I would decide to save it, hopefully I do.

First thing I did was place both plants in a small jar with a little bit of water so they would root, surprisingly they did!  I am off to a good start.

Next I found the pots I had from previously failed plants.  I then went to Home Depot to purchase some soil, this bag of Pro Mix which I can use for indoor and outdoor plants was only $5.49, and I only used a couple hand fulls.  I had a paper bag I ripped open to protect the table.

I then followed the directions from Pro Mix which said to fill the bottom 1/3 full of soil, add the plant, pack in the dirt around the plant to fill and lastly water the plant.

The black pot was magnetic so I added a little crystal and now it is beautifully displayed on the fridge!

The other one I placed near the front door with an amethyst in the sunshine.

TOTAL COST: $5.49 for the dirt (probably used 20 cents of this dirt and I will use this for my outdoor plants when it is warm enough)
