Money tree

A little over two years ago, my money tree was thriving. I don't really know what has all happened since then, but five trees have gone down to two, and it's really struggling now. My gut feel, completely unscientific theory on this is that I haven't given it the attention it requires. I used to stare at that thing 20 times a day, every day. Sure, I just pulled a number out of my butt, but I feel like it's pretty close to the truth.

So, last week, while I was doing surgery on my plant and removing one of the dead trees, I decided that I would try and save the last two standing.

In the past, when I was staring at the tree a lot, I would look for tiny little sprouts, and watch them grow bigger and bigger each day. Last week, I picked out a tiny set of leaves, and I think it's actually grown a bit!
