30 Before 30


29. Get a house plant and keep it alive.

On Saturday, I headed to Ikea for a little shopping trip. I had picked up an Aloe plant there about a year ago so I knew they had a few live plants. The Aloe plant from a year ago is no longer alive because apparently I don't have a green thumb. When I looked over their plant selection, I decided to go ahead and get another house plant. This time I went with an Elephant Foot Palm. It won't require as much watering and it doesn't need direct sunlight.
It's name is Dumbo. Now the trick will be to keep it alive. I know these can get really big but I've been assured that won't be for years. Look how big these things get...
I'll keep you updated on Dumbo...

Woah, those can get big!

I have a black thumb.... I kill everything green. I once killed a cactus. How sad is that?

Good job girl - I totally would've killed that thing in the same week I got it, hahaha.

I got the house plant when I separated from my bf. His words when I took it were try not to kill it, because I serious kill every plant! But so far, so good! I've been keeping it alive since August, and it's about half the size of your plant when full grown! Fingers crossed I didn't just jinx it- eep!

Good luck!
