No that is not true. If there was anything on your hand that would damage a plant then the spot you touched would turn brown or black but the entire plant wouldn't die. Take heart! You can be a successful gardener, you just need to follow some basic guidelines to provide plants what they need to grow. Good soil preparation, proper lighting levels, adequate moisture but not too much (overwatering kills more plants than underwatering), and gradual feeding are the keys to growing great plants and great gardens. If you will stop by the Home Depot website with your specific gardening questions about specific plants we can guide you along. The more specific each question is the better we can answer it.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
