I’m including a sneak-attack, Saturday post so that all who have waited with bated breath can find out the fate of the troubled Zebra Plant.

Here it goes…

… like so many (ok, two, three, no, four!) other houseplants which have come under my care, …

… it died.

Despite, being given pebbles...

... and much less-frequent waterings, ...

.... it just kept losing foilage...

... until it just gave up.

And so, I’m giving up too… not on houseplants altogether. Despite this and my previous casualty, my Song of Jamaica, Crown of Thorns, and little Dracaena are plugging away. Instead, I’m going to avoid anything described as “finicky” or even “moderately difficult”. Looks like the Cast Iron Plant has my name all over it. Otherwise I’ll never be able to get a puppy!

RIP little Zebra Plant: the lessons learned upon your demise will save the lives of so many other houseplants.
