My Green Thumb is Waning....


I know - not such a pretty picture to pull up of my ivy that is dying off. I bought these the same day that I found out I had gotten my new job - kind of a celebration - you know, a new phase in my life, a new plant to grow and thrive...only no one told the plant - well, I tried to, but John laughs at me when I talk to my plants (even though I tell him the co2 from my breath is good for them). Anyhow - my ivy is dying and I want to have beautiful ivy! When I bought these plants they said - 'easy to grow'. Not sure if I'm missing something. I'm hoping someone can help me out on this one. First - are they already dead? Should I just gracefully dispose of them? Second - if they are not dead, what else can I try? I have tried keeping them moist, not keeping them too moist, keeping them in full light, keeping them in moderate light...Comments and suggestions are welcome!!

Bethany, no advice here...I know nothing of growing plants. Sorry! Just wanted to leave a quick comment. Thanks for keeping us last weekend. We enjoyed those couple of days. Also, just wanted to say I was thinking of you yesterday...we went swimming and I thought back to the days when you and I would swim while we (I mean you!) waiting for John to get off work! Hope your Sunday is going well!! Love ya
