Don't let plants spoil your life.

You should just throw it directly in the trash on the fifteenth of January with a little ceremony of farewell before moving on to new challenges.

Great idea. Maybe I'll combine it with Valentine's Day..."Love and Loss"?
Thanks.

Sounds like a marketer's dream to me.

Poinsettias are kind of romantic yet pointy too. Just the sort of thing to associate with love and disappointment.

I always thought the red/green Christmas thing was sucky and way too literal anyway.

Marcie Judelson

Yes! It's about "re-purposing" the Poinsettia.
The Poinsettia Association of America will thank me. No one will give roses for Valentine's anymore (so one dimensional).

Aristotle divided all living things between plants (which generally do not move), and animals (which often are mobile to catch their food). In Linnaeus' system, these became the Kingdoms Vegetabilia (later Metaphyta or Plantae) and Animalia (also called Metazoa

I just found this post here in 2019.

It’s the 10th January. I haven’t watered the god damn thing in 2 weeks. I don’t feel bad. It’s still as fresh as the day I bought it.

Coincidentally I am diagnosed with chronic fatigue.

I hate this plant now, why won’t it give up?

Marcie Judelson

Hi Lis!

Funny, I completely forgot about this post.

A dear friend gave me a poinsettia in early Dec (he calls it "the Robert Goulet of plants"). I pretty much neglected it,and it rather quickly withered and finally bit the dust. I threw it out about a week ago, but felt rather guilty (my friend understood).

Don't give up. It can't last forever.

Thanks for commenting. And Happy New Year!
