So, when I went to plant the dogwood I posted about yesterday, I discovered a beautiful jade plant growing in the yard! How did that happen?
Well, whenever I had dead houseplants, I dumped the dirt into the potential-flowerbed I mentioned yesterday. After Andy removed the pond liner and some of the ickiness that had been accumulating there, I wanted to fill in the hole left behind. I didn't have any soil on hand, so I just dumped houseplant remains whenever I had them. (Not that I kill lots of houseplants, but I had a group of succulents that I just couldn't keep alive!)
Fast forward several months, and a jade plant was growing outside!
I threw out a dead plant and it somehow revived itself. Amazing!
I planted it in a green planter and I'm keeping it outside right now since it previously died inside.
I was so giddy when I found it. It was part of a group of succulents I bought around my 30th birthday last year. I passed them out as favors at my party and it's fun to see them alive at friends' houses, but I wasn't able to keep any of my own alive. I'm happy to have this one!
