Today who wants to take bets on how long I can keep my new houseplant alive?
I had to go to Waitrose for some more niche dinner ingredients, and when I walked in there was a load of houseplants at the front of the store.
I don’t know why I decided to do it, because I know myself well enough to know that I will fail to keep this houseplant alive for much longer than a week.
I don’t even know whether or not I think a week is generous, because I don’t really know how long it would live if I just did nothing to it. Let’s hope I don’t find out.
The label (yes I read the label) says to keep it out of direct sunlight, so I had to remove it from the windowsill where I was intending for it to live. Now it’s on the dining room table just so I could at least look at it while I was eating.
Yes, it looks like a houseplant.
Until tomorrow, my moneys on 10 days tops.
