    Worst thing you do

    What are some of the worst maintenance tasks that you have to do in relation to your CP hobby?

    For me, it's cleaning out the humidifier. Currently I'm using a heat based one, and it boils away the water leaving nasty mineral buildup that has to be cleaned every few months. It's disgusting looking and I hate doing it.

    What's your worst CP related task?

    Ditto on the humdifier. Cleaning out the moldy gunk is enough to make me lose my tea.
    2nd, having to put them in the car while I'm moving. It is just hell. That would be number one but it doesn't happen much.

    I hate transporting them between school and home on breaks. Very annoying.



    MFT, if you clean your humidifier every 3 days or so, it won't be so nasty!

    I'll third that complaint. I also hate watering because I have to move all my plants around as it's tough to reach some of them.

    I hate cleaning underneath my shelf. The water accumulates of the paper and I have to squeeze my arm through the tiny 2 - 3 inch gap to reach the water with a cloth.

    I freaking freaking hate moving. DAMN! it messes up my mood for the day even. I just hate disturbing them.

    Repotting: Acutally isn't too bad. But yeah...it pisses me off that it will take a while before the plant grows back to look natural in the pot.

    I love my plants and any thing I do for them that might seem tedious I do with cheer, the other day I cleaned out all my water trays and scrubbed them and wiped off each side of every plant pot, wiping off peat debris and clinging algae perlite etc.
