So, here is your Question of the Day:
What do you think my chances are of keeping a plant alive? For the records, it's a maidenhair fern.
Background: I used to have a jade plant in our bathroom, which faces north and has a small window that provides a little indirect light. But then it got too giraffe-like and Chris rescued it and installed it in our kitchen, which gets plentiful, direct sunlight from the south.
