indoor geranium

I am quite rubbish at growing indoor flowers. I kill them with kindness, well, actually, with water. But this little geranium I bought from a local charity looked so cute in the ceramic water can and I worked really hard at not drowning it. I am very pleased with the lovely blossom and hope the other bud opens as well.

Oh, me too. I've told my family not to give me living 'things' (especially indoor plants) as gifts, I'll only kill them with kindness.

Well at least you know the remedy. STOP watering.

You really describe me. I'm not good with plants too. Only a few are still alive but it is only a question of time :) . Your geranium look great.
Have a nice day.

Those ceramic pots make it so easy to over-water. Neat little plant.

The geranium looks quite happy in the cute little pot. To keep from over watering you could get a moisture meter to check to see if the plant really does need water. They are not expensive and available at greenhouses and other places that sell plants.

I have a few houseplants which seem to survive my method of drought and flood! It is very tricky to get the balance right.
