My First House Plant

About six months ago, I purchased my very first house plant.

I chose the easiest option because, to be honest, I thought for sure I would kill it.
The easiest option turned out to be a money tree due to the fact that they require little water and minimal sun. It also only cost me $4 + the pot (totally replaceable).

To my total surprise, I became obsessed with this plant. I water it constantly, make sure it has enough sun, clean it regularity, and have had a few bouts with spider mites that love and care have successfully conquered.

As you can see, all of my love and care has done this plant so well that it grew to be too big for its' original pot. I feel like a house plant champion.

I finally got around to replanting the beauty, and now I'm hoping for let her grow until she becomes a full sized tree (the ones that cost $25 at the nursery)! Wish me luck.

I also plan to get a few more real plants to place around my home since I know I can take care of these babies like a pro.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that I have an awesome little girl as a helper!
