  1. My boyfriend tried growing a lil cilantro plant at home, and it was doing really well for a while. Then he over-watered it one day and it didn’t recover /: we will keep trying!

  2. Awesome tips! I do understand some people chooses not to plant b/c they’re afraid or are sure that it’ll just die. It’s a bit difficult to ‘persuade’ that it might take more practice to finally find ‘success’ in gardening.

    I’m green thumb, and both of my parents are, my father grows forests and my mom tends our orchards. I feel grateful for being one because I can make plants grow and gardens thrive.

    Do you also have that ‘six-sense’ about plants? Call me crazy but I do feel what plant needs, like watching them gives me an idea of their needs. My relatives even jokes about me planting a wooden post would make it grow.

    1. Hehehe… Yes I totally understand about the sixth sense ..
      And I also believe what plants need the most is our love and attention… 🙂 Nutrition.. Pruning.. Maintenance… Are all secondary…!!

      Its great to know about your parents.. They are true inspiration for people like us!! 🙂
