I killed a plant today and I feel bad. I was getting confused on what this plant wants. When I took it home from the nursery it looked vibrant and happy. It was a tall plant covered in perky yellow leaves with a blot of green. Now it is all dried up and withering. All along I deceived myself I have a green thumb. How proudly I would announce when a sprout pops out from a seed I myself have sown. But now I doubt myself If I really know anything about gardening.
It is a houseplant you see, so I placed it inside my living room just about three foot away from the main door. Every morning it was touched by a bit of indirect sunlight and I do water it properly. But day by day the leaves turn yellow and fall, its vibrancy diminishing. I thought probably it needed more sun so today I put it out just by the door where the sunlight is falling . But we are at the heights of summer so suddenly all of the leaves turned brown. With an aching heart I took it in and trimmed all the dead leaves. Now here all the bald stems are staring at me accusingly. I killed a plant today and I am sorry.
