Success, Shanda


Well gee...I almost didn't do this challenge. Yikes, it was hard for me. I thought and thought about what Success means to me...but I just couldn't think today. I didn't want to fail, so I am going ahead and posting...but it's not a great picture. I'm not totally excited about it and I was a little lazy about it I admit. It's not totally focused how I wanted it...blah blah...but what I DO like about it, is that it actually DOES stand for a success in my life. I have NEVER been able to keep a plant alive, but I swore if I got this one, I'd keep it alive, and so far I have. I LOVE bamboo plants. And I like the coloring on the pic.


Ok, you can CC it, but I already know it's not greatly done...next pic. I promise. I seem to be an every other picture sort of gal. I get a good one every other time.

Keeping a plant--a GREAT success! Seriously, I am in your same boat in this department! That's tough stuff!

And I agree--great color in this pic!

I'm not a green thumb either. In-fact I even kill plants that are outside, and I live in WA. The picture is great. I would totally buy that bamboo if I saw it in a magazine!

Gotta love a little bamboo. I think it is beautiful!

Ha. Love it... it's more than I've ever been able to do with a plant.

I feel ya, and give you major props. I also have a bamboo plant, which I am currently struggling to keep alive. I would LOVE any peices of advice from you on how to care for these beautiful plants! (It's brown on the leaf tips--does that mean it needs more/less water? more light? Help!) --Jenny

Hi Jenny!

We use distilled water in it instead of tap water. The guy who sold it to us gave us that tip and said it would keep it greener. It's worked so far. We just keep it nice and watered everyday.
