For someone who lives on a plant-based diet, I certainly lack the green thumb. It makes me so sad to admit that I’ve killed a lot of plants in my life. Orchids are lucky to last a month in my house. My zinnias are struggling, and my dahlias became slug food. Just this week I had to throw away two succulents – plants that are notoriously easy to take care of. I am a delinquent gardener.
