I love plants but I know I don’t have the perfect green thumb. Actually, I don’t even think I technically have green thumb but I do manage to keep a lot of plants alive and well. I attribute that more to their resiliency than anything else. If they’re able to survive and thrive despite my lack of green thumbness, well, that’s quite the feat.
You see, I’m also a little accident prone. I walk into walls that don’t move, trip on completely flat ground with running shoes on, and I knock off unsuspecting jade plant leaves during regular routine maintenance. I manage to do it not once, not twice, but three times all on the same day.
Well, as any quick thinking non-green thumber would do, I immediately jabbed each of those leaves into soil, watered them routinely to keep them alive and hoped for the best.
Fast forward to one random day and guess what I saw growing out of one of those leaves?
You can’t even begin to imagine how excited and happy I was. I mean, talk about resilience. The photo doesn’t do it justice because you can’t quite tell how small the little jade plant actually is but that jade plant leaf is only about the size of one really big human thumb so that gives you some perspective of how tiny that little guy is.
Yet there it was.
Well, once I discovered that little tiny jade plant I decided to give it some more space for growing so I re-potted it and gave it a new home.
It doesn’t take much to put a big smile on my face. Moments like this remind me of how beautiful and miraculous nature is. I can’t wait to see this little jade plant grow!
Things to do: no matter how busy life is, never forget to take time out and appreciate the little things in life. Never.
