Sometimes, you just need to try something new, even if change is only as dramatic as swapping out one tired plant with a perkier substitute. I’ve tried for a few months to convince our succulent that there’s enough sunshine in this tiny apartment to keep it happy, but this weekend I finally admitted defeat. I potted a small rabbit foot fern in her stead, and I’m hopeful that our shady little space will nurture that bit of green better than it did the succulent.
PS. I found my new fern friend at a local shop called GRDN. I wrote more about that space, here.
