Before you view the picture I took today of one of my indoor plants, I'd first like to refresh your memory of the overflowing bounty that was my vegetable garden of 2008:
And don't forget these:
Given those results, you'd think my indoor plants would look halfway decent. Not so much.
I'm not quite sure how this plant has managed to stay alive for the past 5 years. It's pretty resilient, obviously, since it needs to recover from this near-death state on a regular basis. Once you notice it looking like this, all you ned to do is dump a lot of water on it and within a day it looks normal. Vibrant, even.
Please note that the state of this plant should not be viewed as a reflection of the effectiveness of the aqua globe-(as seen on tv)-that you see. Turns out that you need to fill those with water on a regular basis in order for them to work. Maybe if I had 8 or so in this plant they'd do the job.
