As you all know, I'm city livin' without a yard. Therefore all my gardening passion/efforts are going into my potted plants. It's quite satisfying to cultivate them and watch them grow. They give back in cleaner air, happier environment, as well as a calming effect. I love my plants so much I name them and talk to them on their watering schedule. I think they like it, as it reminds me to tend to them, and in the past eight months these guys have really thrived!
