Money plant

My husband had brought a teeny-tiny money plant from a relative’s house. It had only 2 leaves.  We were a bit apprehensive, would it survive? What if we forgot to care for it? After some days we were happy that it did survive, and remained a tiny plant.

We shifted house with loads of “samaan”, and the tiny plant was tucked away as a special possession in our car, rather than in the samaan truck.  Would the tiny plant survive the perils of shifting house?  After some days we were happy that it did survive, and became a “small plant”.

We bought many more plants – mostly flowering to grow in the new house. All the flowering plants withered slowly, since there is not enough sun light in our  new house. We were pretty upset, since we had specifically checked about this before buying, and it was agonizing to see one plant after another go.  We were again worried as to what would happen to the money plant – it was still small.

After some months we are happy that not only has the money plant survived all our fears, change of circumstances and even outlived its stronger-looking contemporaries, it has slowly grown from a tiny –> to small –> to a flourishing money plant.  We see it expanding prolifically, with additional leaves/ stem parts emerging almost every other day.

We could never ever have guessed the extent of “love for life” in our tiny money plant.
