It's amazing that my plants have lived this long
I have a couple of plants that I've had for over 13 years, and it's pretty amazing that they are still alive after all the abuse they've had to live through! They even made it through a cross country move!
When I started, the extent of my knowledge was pretty much that plants need dirt, light, and water. Period! lol. I've killed pothos, african violets, aloe, and lots more.
My poor, old faithful plants include:
13+ year old jade tree. This was super leggy, and I recently layered it and it started growing out of all sorts of places on the layered stem! It's odd looking, but pretty neat to watch!
13+ year old peperomia- I thought this one died years ago, and through some combination of hope and laziness, I left it in the pot and watered it sporadically for months. Wouldn't you know it, it came back better than ever. It was still pretty sad for a while, until I finally pruned it like crazy after reading a thread on here. It's kinda cute now.
13+ year old corn plant. This thing is huge! This one was my dh's before I met him. We actually had it bloom this past summer! It had NEVER been repotted in the 12 years I've known him, until the other day.
