Don’t Forget To Water

Succulents seem to be hardy

As I’ve mentioned in the last several posts, I have been struggling with the remains of some sort of sinus/bronchial illness since December 22. When I am “under the weather”, as the colloquialism goes, I tend to be less careful about all the personal hygiene routines. Okay, don’t freak – I shower and brush my teeth. *grin* I mean all those little extras in which some of us indulge: moisturizer routines, manicures, pedicures. I also tend to neglect my plants’ personal hygiene as well. I noticed yesterday morning that the plants in the kitchen window looked thirsty. That’s easily remedied. I put them all in the sink and ‘rained’ on them for a while with the sink spray. Today I realized that I’d also neglected the areca palms in the breakfast room. They’d been surviving there in the winter, but today I saw that two of the leaves had turned yellow. That’s not good. 😦 I watered them and made a note to myself (yes, a physical note up on the wall) to water them tomorrow. I hope I haven’t done irrevocable damage to them. I’d really like them to survive until I can move them back to the porch in May. The information I found online claims they can weather a little drought. I hope 2-3 weeks in a house with humidifiers counts as “little”.
