Bought some succulents planted in a mug from a fair in Delhi.
They were vibrant and beautiful, but within days, shed most of their leaves and many from the cluster perished.
I am now left with two mugs and the hardiest stragglers. They are not as decorative but they are alive.
Finally, we’ve come to an understanding…they want to live and I want to help them do so. We’ve worked together. They’ve guided me about the amount of water they need and which spot by the windowsill they prefer.
Between the two cups I’ve placed a thriving money plant, sort of like a motivational speaker, urging the succulents on to live and flourish… To be more positive and life-affirming as opposed to sad and morose 😊
