My my, what an article. I went all the way from beginning till end without even stopping for a breath. I could actually visualize the author doing the "Push, pull, drag" thing with a grim face. Well, our life depends on decisions that we take and surely 'keeping hubby' instead of ficus was a smart choice I suppose (just joking). Now I have odd 30 euphorbia, 20 Diffenbachia, 15 aralia, 10 alocacia cucculata, blah blah blah (list can go on with out end) with no takers in the neighborhood. Here in India we have a scorching summer, intolerable even for humans, and a drenching rainy season combined with chilly winters (no frost). God only knows how I manage to keep things living. But one thing for sure, cheap labor in India helps ( to take the plants from shade to sun and back to shade). Hats off to you ma'am for a courageous display of duty for things which you 'swear' you dont like. Keep it up till you can. ( I wonder how your articles on boating read like). In short - just great.

Well, drdipankar...I did it again just about a month ago. They are all outside now, growing and laughing and enjoying every ray of sun and every drop of rain. And in my rooting vases I have dracena, branches of ficus...well, you can just imagine.

I am so glad you truly understand.
Thank you.

Oh...and cheap labor sounds just wonderful.
Have a great summer!
