One summer, my great uncle and I got into gardening.
Ok well, it was more me and he just listened to me rant on about it.
We visited every Lowe’s, Home Depot, plant nursery and any store basically within an hour of us that was selling plants.
He bought each of us a rose bush.
I bought each of us a tropical plant of some sort.
As if I know the name, I just thought it was pretty.
The rose bushes lived.
The tropical plants died.
As did anything else I purchased.
I read his mother’s book on gardening that was thicker than the Bible.
I’m not kidding. I still have it.
I attempted to propogate hydrangeas.
I divided irises.
I ordered a ridiculous amount of flower seeds from a specialty seed company and planted every last one of them.
Much to my dismay, not a darn thing lived except for a few irises.
It was apparent that summer that me and flowers didn’t get along too well.
When I realized Grunt Labor was such a fantastic gardener, I jumped for joy and didn’t worry with anything flower related again.
Things have changed though.
I have now achieved green thumb status, y’all.
And I didn’t have to lie, cheat or steal to get it.
Ok, I did cheat a little…
Recently, I have a newfound love for indoor plants.
The problem is that I forget to water them.
That poor fiddle leaf fig is still recovering from when I forgot to water it for three weeks. The really sad thing is that I was super pumped about getting that plant and then forgot all about it.
But now, I have a friend who gives me instant green thumb status.
Its just like any other flower pot – except its magical.
Because it waters your plant for you. For up to 4 months.
All you need to do is plant your plant as you normally would in any planter and water it.
P.S. You can use this inside or outside. There’s a specific plug on the bottom for inside or outside.
Then, remove the handle.
Fill the reservoir with water and replace the handle.
You can also add plant food in the reservoir to help your plants really kick butt and take names. 😉
When the cute little blue float drops, you need to add more water.
So y’all, my plant (as if I actually know the name of it), has been in the Nimbus pot for about a month now. It has done so well – it even had new leaves growing within two weeks of being in the pot.
I may or may not have done a happy plant dance.
I was seriously amazed with my green thumb abilities.
Ok, the Nimbus’ green thumb abilities.
You can place the Nimbus pot inside a pretty container if you want to and it won’t affect the watering at all.
I have mine inside a thrifted gold container I found. Its actually a little too small at the top for the Nimbus, but not enough to bother me. I think it looks great in front of the confetti wall.
Is there anyone else who is ready to achieve instant green thumb status?
