On the good side of things, I did come across a wonderful interent article outlining 11 wonderful indoor plants that are apparently hard to kill! How perfect! Take a peek (link)!
What a concept! I figure a little more plant research is needed for me to overcome my black thumb and lots of the greenery from the plants on this list are just wonderful! I mean look how lush and shiny that rubber plant above is! I even have a haworthias plant (on the list) and why yes! It appears to have survived the terrors of my awful plant taking care of skills! How wonderful! I am also seriously considering converting to fake greenery in my weedy and desolate terrariums but I'm not totally sold on how tacky they would look if the plastic plants looked too obviously fake. Looks like I'll be keeping my eyes out for natural looking moss and succulent alternatives - as well as any of the lovely hard to destroy plants from the list! Wish me luck!
