Buying Plants for all the Wrong Reasons
We like the Apartment Therapy blog, and have found some good stuff there, not to mention they’ve featured us a couple times too. But this is not right. They’ve found some cheap succulents at a national chain (Trader Joe’s) and figure they’re going to die anyway, so who cares.
Then we spotted these adorable succulent plantings. At $6, they’re inexpensive enough to replace if our notorious black thumb has its way.
Consumerism is just so disposable that even lifeforms are seen as disposable. Plan it out in advance – how to kill your new plant in two easy weeks.
Now I’m all grumpy – see what you’ve done to me, Ap’t Therapy!
