Primula make rather a dramatic statement when they need attention, don’t they?
Look at the drooping blossoms and limp leaves.
This characteristic makes them an excellent plant for the challenged houseplant owner,
I need a plant that calls out – water me!
Otherwise in a fit of plant piety, I overwater.
Result? Death by drowning
conversely, I forget all about them.
Result? Death by dehydration.
The primula response to a little watering is very gratifying.
Same plant, a few hours after watering.
Isn’t it a sweetheart?
I love you primula.
You make me feel like a miracle worker.
Just a little postscript to say thank you so much for your get well wishes and prayers. Turns out that the “bad back” was really a kidney infection. I’m on antibitoics now and hopefully I’ll feel as perky as that little primula in no time. Thanks again!
