    New Grower's Troubleshooting Guide (playful tease)

    Step 1: Buy plant you have neither a clue about nor proper conditions for.
    Step 2: Realization that after being in your care, your plant doesn’t look like (fill in blank)’s plant.
    Step 3: Ask everyone on Terraforums to identify the problem, ignore search function.
    Step 4: Only listen to answers you like or answers you made up your mind about already.
    Step 5: Dispute advice and disregard any answer that isn’t black and white.
    Step 6: Alter the parameter you now believe is causing the problem.
    Step 7: Since step 6 didn't work, alter the parameter in the other direction.
    Step 8: Realize that the parameter had nothing to do with the problem to begin with.
    Step 9: Identify another parameter that's causing the problem.
    Step 10: Repeat steps 2-9 for every conceivable parameter.
    Step 11: Realization that there are no easy black and white answers and one size does not fit all.
    Step 12: Multiple choice, select best answer.
    a. Kill plant and blame plant and/or source you got it from
    b. Give plant away and blame plant and/or source you got it from.
    c. Learn how to grow plant successfully

    hehehehe just having some tongue and cheek fun, we were all new once :-)

    Pfffffft, so true....if I had a nickle for every time I saw this happen...I'd buy a greenhouse and could skip most of those steps.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    LOL I chose C! No disputing here, stands to reason that you all know more than me! I'm still kind of a noob but I have 5 years experience under my belt now I definitely forget to use the search function though lol!
