Re: I'm seriously going to delete this after I get an answer
I thought I read somewhere that "talking" to your plants help keep them alive. I am dead serious. I don't know if it's legit but once upon a time I read that somewhere. Or maybe it was singing.
Anyhow, try it. Talk to your plants. You can even do it bored housewife style and gossip to them AND sing bored housewife gossip for good measure. Watch them flourish. Haha.
