My (Nameless) Mango Plant

August 18, 2005 at 12:34 AM | Nostalgia, Site/Personal | 22 Comments

I love mangosI have never been successful in raising any plants or growing anything my entire life. I’m serious! Like you remember those science projects we used to have in class, where the whole class would grow a small plant from a seed or a bean for whatever reason? Well, I was always the kid whose plant would die and they’d just have to have me work with someone else’s plant or give me a different project or something. I’d always give the plant too much water or not enough water… all kinds of shit went wrong… I just could not grow anything for the life of me. Growing things is simply not my specialty.

But that was years ago. Hopefully, in my many years of not having tried my hand at growing anything (unsucessfully), I will have completely forgotten how to improperly care for plantlife and I can start anew–I am currently caring for a young mango plant that my aunt gave me. It was grown from the seed of a mango that was supposedly really bad ass. And I love everything there is to do with mangos, so I (perhaps foolishly) accepted the mango plant into my care. It really isn’t that big right now, but I think I can make this work.

I mean, I’ve experienced some difficulties with it already… I decided that it wasn’t getting enough sunlight in my room, so I moved it out to the balcony/deck thing. Trouble is, that spot doesn’t get a whole lot of sunlight either. Maybe even less. But I thought maybe the “fresh air” might be good for it. I’m not sure what was the basis behind that one, but I mean plants normally grow outside, right? To be honest, there really isn’t a whole lot of prime sunlight spots in the apartment. But anyways, I left the mango plant out there for a couple of weeks and it seemed to be doing OK. Except one time, I went out there to check on it and some of the leaves were a sickly pale yellow-green color and drooping. I freaked. It was fine just the other day! Had I done it again? Had I killed my mango plant? I decided that maybe it was too hot outside with too little sunlight to be doing any good. So I brought it back into my room. It seems to be doing a little bit better now, but I am still a little worried about it, during its time of recovery.

I’m thinking if I can barely take care of a plant, then I could never care for a pet. I’ve never ever had a pet. And it’s unfortunate, because I really like animals.

And as a side note (hinted at by the title), I want to give my plant a name. I mean, I’ve got a pretty good track record at naming things at the moment… my computers, my iPod, my car, this foam hippo that I have at work (his name is “Buck”, by the way)… but I can’t think of anything for a plant. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Good article. It is very unfortunate that over the last 10 years, the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine flu, and the first ever true global economic downturn. Through everything the industry has proven to be effective, resilient plus dynamic, locating new solutions to deal with hardship. There are generally fresh challenges and opportunities to which the marketplace must once more adapt and act in response.
