Shamrock Rehabilitation

I love having plants around the house.  It's so nice to have something green and leafy (or in this case, red and leafy) all year round.  But sometimes, my plants start to look a little sad.  Whether I forgot to water them, watered too much, or put them in the wrong window, it happens!

Today, I have a solution for one plant problem: droopy sad shamrocks.  I've had this red shamrock for a couple of years, and lately it has started to sag. 
It's a little hard to see, but most of these shamrocks are hanging down below the edge of the pot!

The surprising solution?  Cut off all the shamrocks!
Cut them off as close to the dirt as possible
Keep watering the plant, and a fresh batch of much perkier shamrocks will fill in.  Who knew?

 Do you have a green thumb?

  1. I would never know to do that, so obviously I don't have a green thumb. I tend to kill whatever plants we get. :(
