Rooms like these make me wish I had a green thumb. I love the color and shape plant life brings into the home. Alas, I have never been able to keep a plant alive. Granted, I've only tried two or three times, and my first plant-friend fell victim to the mischievous paws of my puppy. But the other two were entirely my fault. And one was bamboo. Isn't bamboo not supposed to die? Help me, readers. What can I do to get a little fresh oxygen pumping through my apartment? Any advice on easy-to-care-for plants?
