You remember this, right?

And then Mr. Downer died on the vine and I chopped him off abruptly and without ceremony?

And then it looked like this.

Well, on Saturday I noticed something funny about the plant, all the stems growing towards the light were now jetting out at me. I can't tell you how many times I stopped to look before I figured out what was right in front of me, the STEM had straightened itself, the leaves weren't bending! Cutting off Mr. Downer had changed things at the SOURCE.

All I'm sayin'.

(P.S. I think Michelle O'Neil was right, the plant needs a bigger and better pot. It's getting one tomorrow.)

maybe the plant needs a dog.

New soil, too. That's a plant looking for food.

I agree, it needs nourishment and maybe some verbal encouragement.

Ooh, changing things at the source. Goosebumps! It is always somewhat frightening and exciting to discover the unintended consequences of our actions. Yikes.

Wish I had a pair of pruning shears for my Mr. Downer(s). :)
