i got my first plant a couple days ago, its 4 little plumosa reds. i wanted a nice little plant that could survive in my bedroom, beginning to think the plumosas are big big mistake. my friends took bets on how long the plants would survive, the least amount time was 1 week. everyone lost. by second day the leaves were turning brown and black and they were starting to tilt over. friends still havent stopped laughing. i havent completely given up yet, i take them outside during day where they sit peacefully in the sun on our balcony all day, and i sing sheryl crow cd's to them sometimes before i got them, i was considering some type of bamboo, does bamboo do good as a house plant? or actually, what IS good for a little house plant?
