And I can do better (or worse) than that.
I managed to kill an artificial plant. Mail-ordered a nice fern to decorate the house. When I got it, I followed the instructions, and put each frond in the styrofoam they provided, in a nice glass bowl, and set it out on the coffee table. Over the next few days, it **withered**!! It was not in the sun, or next to a heating vent. I tried spraying water on it. Nothing helped it.
So now I am know as the family member that killed an artificial plant.
On the other hand, I used to have a thriving herb garden, before I got too bad healthwise to keep it up.
I can do that too! My mom was amazing with plants, outside and inside. The green thumb skipped a generation because I'm completely useless with plants (animals thrive however) and my DD is very good with plants AND animals.
