What have you destroyed lately?
I was watering my plants the other day and I encountered this mess at the crown of my obscura 'White Form,' a particularly lovely Hoya.
I really push the envelope with the proximity between the tops of my hoops and the shelving above, so of course when they are growing like mad, the Hoyas can easily grow right up into the lighting fixture between one watering and the next. Which is more or less what happened here. I just don't understand. They could keep a safe distance, but they're more like moths to the flame.
So, two questions.
FIRST. What do you guys do when one of your leaves gets screwed up? Do you just leave them there with an appreciation of the wabi-sabi aesthetic of the imperfect but functional natural form? Or do you nip them off to make way for a hopefully more flawless replacement leaf, so you don't have to be reminded of your mistake every time you walk past?
SECOND. What have you done lately to screw up your beloved plants? Hopefully there won't be the sound of crickets chirping as the cheese stands alone.
