Let’s play another round of the “What would your advice be?” game! This is where I show you a houseplant question that someone emailed me, and then I ask what you would’ve said had the question come to you. Then we compare notes and we laugh and we laugh. It’s good wholesome fun – you’ll see.

Someone Else Asks, You Answer!

I got this question recently. I think the person must’ve stumbled across my blog on a google search – definitely not a regular reader. I think it should be fairly easy for those of you who do read this blog, as it’s not an unfamiliar topic – in the subject line was written “Norfolk Island Pine”:

Emailer: “Hi I have a question! I cut a piece off my grandpas plant to try and re grow it? How do I get roots from it? Thank u so much!”

Hmmm. Cut first, ask questions later. I’m guessing the writer is young. Readers, what do you think? How would you answer the question? Snarkily is ok.

I did reply, and I’ll share that with you next Wednesday. If you have advice, please leave it in the comments section.

Oh, if you don’t know what a Norfolk Island Pine looks like, here’s a photo of mine, Peach, wearing her Christmas bling last month:

Good To Grow, Liza's photos, it's all festive up in here

I look forward to hearing your advice! *snickers*


Good To Grow is an Albuquerque-based interior and exterior landscaping service. We use plants and flowers to decorate offices, homes and patios around the city. We also offer memorial garden services, meaning that when a loved one passes, we can plant a customized garden in his or her honor. If the person who passed was an avid cook, we can plant an herb garden to honor that person’s memory. If a Veteran dies, we can plant a red, white, and blue perennial garden. If you lost a beloved pet, we can plant a garden around the burial site.

If you’d like to know more about the landscaping or memorial garden services offered, please send an email to lizatheplantlady at gmail dot com. Thank you for your consideration.
