The reason I haven't posted in a while is because I been in a heavyly depressed state for the past month and a half I think. You don't want what I have trust me.
Plus I have to go somewhere to access the internet I don't have it in my apartment I can't afford it. It's either plants or internet in my apartment can't afford both and you all know which one I want.

But I been taking very good care of all my plants, In periods when I'm stronger.
My doctor has upped my meds So maybe I'll be better for a very long time.

I plan to try to water my succulents once a month so they won't stretch out, working so far (except for my hummels sunset jade so I have given it more water) and the lights are bright enough to give them quite a bit of color.
My flapjacks plant is getting a lot of red in it. I will post more pics soon.

Adam,
Been there. I know what you mean. Try support groups if in your area. Plants make good friends but don't get upset when one or two die. It happens to all of us.

Hey, I know what you mean man. I have depression and an anxiety disorder. Medication and therapy helps a lot, but so do my plants. Gardening is very therapeutic Smiling Hope you keep feeling better.
