My dad got a Ficus Benjamina when he was 18. Whaaa? It’s a houseplant otherwise knows as a Weeping Fig. It’s not so much a houseplant as it is a house tree! Lol. The larger ones grow up to ten feet tall and that’s how big our family one is. My dad wants to give it me because it’s outgrown his space but I am afraid I would kill this 45 year old plant. My black thumb is getting greener but that’s a lot of pressure! Think you could do it?
Diply has a roundup of 15 helpful tips that will help even the most gardening challenged have more success. I can use these! I like number 3, using eggshells as starters for tiny seedlings. I wonder how they got the eggs to crack so nice and perfect. I also like number 11. Rocks with the names of your plants and flowers won’t make your garden goods grow better but it will make them look snazzy. Have you tried any of these? Have they worked? Let me know!
I thought it would be helpful to have some tips for the inside plants too. These are great for those who don’t like to garden but still want a splash of green in their decorating scheme. House plants/trees (hehe) are all different and have specific requirements but these general tips are a good place to start. Find them here.
