My Plant

My friend who wishes her name was Cat was wondering about my plant. Here you go!

Plant in Action

I think this is supposed to be a flowering plant but so far it hasn’t flowered :(

It has grown though! The red walgreens squirt bottle is placed handily hear by so that I can squirt the dish full of water when it gets dry. I usually open the blinds in the window over my bed before I go to work so that the plant will get sunlight. I haven’t added any fertilizer yet, but i’ve only had it for about 6 months and it’s still growing fresh leaves so I guess it’s reasonably healthy.



  1. I think that you and I have the same plant. Is that the umbella plant also commonly used in bonsai trees?

  2. You are doing a wonderful job not killing the plant!!

  3. No, it’s a form of a gardenia or jasmine plant. I’m not sure which.

    It hasn’t flowered yet though. The leaves look healthy, but I think the periods of drought the plant has to endure make it not ready for flower bearing :(

  5. Hey – Do you think it needs a larger pot?

  6. I think so. It looks like it’s growing out of its home.

  7. Yeah… i’ll go pot shopping this weekend.

    There’s a really sketchy store I see on my way to work, and although I’d never buy vegetables there, they have a mini greenhouse area I can see through the window. There aren’t really any home depot type places close to me, so maybe i’ll check out this sketchy store instead to see if they have nice pots.
