Another little green sign of life

I swore I had killed this little guy. A lovely prayer plant, with red-spotted green leaves that folded up every night. He was living in a pot with an umbrella plant. And today, while wiping the umbrella’s leaves with rubbing alcohol to push back the scale, surprise!

this umbrella plant saved his friend's life

Little pokey, little droopy. I think that saved his life. Because instead of chucking him, I kept taking care of his friend. See those tangles? That was the last of the prayer plant.

surprise! i thought it was dead

And then, amid the March snows, up he popped.

surprise! that plant's still alive

I was the jumping up and down kind of happy about it.
