A girl and her plant...  
I am lonely, so because pets aren't allowed, I got a plant. I want to love it and take care of it, and it's been resting comfortably in my home for the last few days. I rescued it from the outside of the grocery store where it was sitting and dying in the frigid temperatures that we've dropped to recently in Tokyo. It's a spider plant, and it reminds me of my past ones that I wish I still had.... *cries* But in light of this fresh start in Tokyo (shush, I know it's been over a year! ^^;;), I've taken this little dying baby into my home. When I got it (it cost less than 100 yen!! So cheap!!), it was very scraggly and dying, and just a few days of being cared for and loved made it start to shine and puff up all prettily!! I wish that I could save all of it's brother plants this way!! *tears*

Tomorrow on my errands, I'm going to get it a big pot, and good dirt and special plant food. Already I love it so much! I even talk to it sometimes!! *hugs it and gets dirty because it has holes in the bottom and leaks all over everything*

Here is my baby:

What should I name it?

Isn't it CUUUUUUUUTE?????!!!!!

Kawaii.... so kawaii!! I love my new plant. ^o^ Let's be together foreeeeever and ever!!!! ♥

I'd name it ueki, just because of the spikey 'hair' and the plant thing... but, you know.

name it... hm... LUCE. ha ha ha.

Horrible at names, so not suggesting anything. XD; But ee, lovely plant, yes. ^___^

I am so horrible at naming things, I pray to god I never have a child. But it's pretty!
angeangelamori on November 15th, 2005 04:39 pm (UTC)
I'm terrible at names!!!

But it's all green-yellow-ish. (And my brain just suggested a hybrid love-child between Ryoma and Kevin, and that's sadcornysadsick)

And it looks so healthy now. ^_^

I find it really sweet! The feelings that you have for the plant (:
And it's really nice of you to rescue it too!
Hope that you can find a good name for it (:

XDD that's so cute! My apartment doesn't allow pets either, so we bought one of the moving/talking Haro's (from Gundam SEED) to be our pet lol. I'm really bad at names though so we just call our pet Haro "Mint-chan" cuz it's green.

Kawaii ^^ and it's cute that you're talking to the little plant as well. I can understand you so well for getting a plant (by time I ran out of places to put plants in my flat, looks like in a greenery here ^^;;; )

Call it "Kebin" *g*
(or "Zaraki" but you aren't that much into Bleach...)

I name everything Bob, but that's just me.

There was a cute plant witch in the movie Sky High named Layla... you could name her Layla. :)

To avoid the whole dirt thing go with hydroponics. I love hydroponics, but my obsession seems to drive everyone else nuts (particularly my ex-wife...lol). You can replace the dirt with these little ceramic beads they make in Germany. At that point all you need is a water pump, a water reservoir and some organic (or chemical, your pick) liquid growth formula.

I used a little aquarium air pump and a "bubble" liquid pump. Makes a gurgling noise, but it keeps the water at a constant flow.

I used that setup with garlic, basil and tomatoes. My problem was a lack of sunlight since I didn't have a windowsil. Indoor growth lamps tend to be used by people to grow...err...herbs indoors, and are expensive. I would imagine electricity being really expensive in Tokyo, so I think a windowsil is better...

I even set up a webcam so I could watch my plants from work. Too bad I had to take everything apart. Now that I moved out I am planning on building Hydroponic Lab 2. We can cross link webcams if you decide to do the same...lol.

Uwaaaaa, that is REALLY awesome!!!!

It sounds a little expensive, though? *stares at low budget*

=D Wah! Kawaii!! I guess that's the closest that you can get to a pet at this time ne...? Hm...I'm really bad with names otherwise I would suggest something for you, but a lot of other people have suggested good names so yey! I'm sure you'll pick something very fitting ^^

Yoda, my vote is. *nod*
sleepycat_00sleepcat_00 on November 16th, 2005 02:50 am (UTC)
Your plants looks great and great deal!
I'd also love to suggest some great name for it, but, well, my dog answers to "Dog" so that's how creative I am with names. ^^;
Erika 「エリカ」: Oshitari Yuushi_mizuki_ on November 16th, 2005 09:53 am (UTC)
I actually like plants way more than animals
hm... I'm bad with name... but what that plant strikes on my eyes is the color, I like that light green
so, probably name it 'greeny' ^^;;;;
