When hubby and I were shopping a month ago, I saw this familiar plant for sale in a corner among other plants. I remember I used to have this kind when I was in Davao. I got fascinated by plant cultivation when I was in high school but sad to say, there would always be an instance that I had to leave them and let die. It happened several times that I decided not to engaged myself in cultivating plants anymore. But a home is not quite cosy without indoor plants, not importantly flowering. It’s kind of having a wonderful atmosphere when I see those lively, green plants in a corner or by the window pane. I only have 4-5 pots of plants and one of them is this so called fortune plant, if I am not mistaken.
Is this a fortune plant?
This costs me 36sek while I only used to pick a stalk of this in a neighborhood’s garden in Davao. I bought this not because it resembles the type of a fortune plant, but because it’s easy to take care of. This is not the kind of plants that wilts soon when I forget to water for a couple of weeks. And really, why are there plants called the fortune plant? I should ask Robert Fortune, the Scottish botanist, for this matter.
