My theory was correct. The flower was an effort to produce offspring before its imminent death, not a sign that I was taking great care of the thing.
But every time one of my plants dies I replace it with at least three more. And eventually… I replace one death with a full-on massacre. Instead of the palm, I now have several snake plants that claim to be “virtually maintenance free”.
I took that as a challenge.
We’ll see, snake plants, we’ll see…
