i happen to be unable, for some reason, to kill a plant. nothing i’ve ever grown in our house has ever died, to my knowledge, unless a housesitter has stepped in for me while we were in france. today’s photo is a succulent that grew for months as a pretty little rosette of tiger striped green leaves, and then one day decided to grow an enormous, ungainly center stalk that flowered, or is about to flower, like this photo. the problem is, i tried to identify the plant by its unique and spectacular flowering stalk, and couldn’t fine it anywhere on the internet. come on people. where are the flowers? did you all kill these plants before they bloomed? i refuse to believe i’m that good.
