I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Tuesday

    New year's resolution (part 2)


    For 2009, I have the usual resolutions to lose weight, do something productive like volunteering and writing etc, but couldn't think of anything new until now. But I need all your good vibes for this one.

    Wait

    For

    It

    "I want to adopt three house plants and make sure they live to see January 2010"

    Why the drama? Well, you might not know this but I have the blackest of thumbs. Meaning- not only do I kill off any plants that I'm held responsible for, but even plants that I offer as gifts to others! My problem is that I just never remember to water plants - if only they could make sounds and drag me to the watering jug like Tusch does when his bowl is empty. I've had a strict rule for avoiding nursaries and telling my parents to never leave me in charge of their plants.

    Now my apartment has these beautiful windows and corners that will be perfect for plants which is making me rethink. A new year means doing something new for me. So I will attempt to raise three plans and not kill them. I'm thinking of naming them -
    - Blinky (coz its cute),
    - Pinky (coz my parents might have given me that nickname to match my sister's, so that's me in an alternate universe) and
    - Paulo (named by Sim for 'Paulo the midget')
    I figure if I can remember to water one, I can do three at once.

    If anyone has any suggestion for plants that are easy to take care of and not poisonous to cats (in fact not attractive to cats period)- please please please leave me a comment!
    Thanks and pray for my three future plant babies!

    This site (http://houseplants-care.blogspot.com/) is amazing! Follow her light/humidity/water level suggestions and you're good to go. She also has helpful notes about poisonous plants and a whole section devoted to easy-to-care-for plants. Good luck!

    I had a plant suggestion for you - but it turns out it's on the list of poisonous plants ... sorry.

    But in case you were wondering, here's a Web link to a list of both toxic and non-toxic plants for cats:

    Hope that helps.
