I have a black AND green thumb! We’ve had this spider plant for probably 12 years. One of the first we ever bought. I don’t really like spider plants, so every time it got a runner, I’d replant the little baby plant and give away the big one. And apparently what they say is true – these are very hard to kill. It was on top of my fridge, lonely and forgotten, when I brought it down there was just a tiny bit of green. Add water, and voila! New plant! There’s now even new shoots out of what I thought was the totally dead side! Yes, black AND green thumb.
