I bought a nice little plant for my desk.
Mine looks a little like this one, but in a different pot. Bamboo is pretty easy to care for. Since I seem to have atrocious luck in caring for plants, I think that bamboo is a good first step in learning to care for growing things. Eventually I want to have an amaryllis plant, but that will take some time, with my luck. In the meantime, if I can keep the bamboo alive, I’ll count that as a win. Plus, it looks really nice on my desktop, sitting there and growing nicely. It’s a good little touch of green, growing things in my room, which is actually really comforting and soothing to me. It helps calm my mind and the thoughts in my head sometimes, which I didn’t expect.∗
