When they start looking “scraggy” I like to have a fresh start! And I recently did that with these two pots, one outside and one inside.
The inside one has had several little palms from the beginning that never lasted more than a year, if that long – evidently needing more sun. So I replaced the palm with a Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss Cheese plant, which is in the philodendron family and can better handle the lack of sun, as already shown in one of the shady areas of my outside garden. A nice tropical change from the palms that kept dying! 🙂
I don’t remember the name of the green plant we removed from my outside frog pot, but it evidently needed more water than that little pot could hold and kept turning brown. So it has been replaced with a type of fan palm that is supposedly easy to grow. But with a smaller pot, I still need to be more frequent with the water! 🙂 And the green plant removed is now doing well in one of my outside gardens!

My goodness. When I saw your headline I thought you had rejoined the 60s. OH ——-New plants in pots , not new pot plants!
Funny story #58. ——-Several years ago a dinner guest brought a tiny marijuana plant as a gift instead of a bottle of wine. Not being a user I was greatly amused . Feeling like a rebel I decided to water it care for it and harvest it as a chuckle. The , I’m told rather potent, results still sit in a bottle mostly unused. However it has made for more than one dinner conversation and a good laugh. —
gosh those rocking chairs are gorgeous!
Steve, Wow! I didn’t realize that my English could be as dangerous as my Spanish! 🙂
You do have a good collection of stories!
