Then suddenly in April it dies with the first heat wave. I was very sad to see the plant go but I read in my favorite garden book that it dies and it will grow again after some period of dormant time.
I took the pot inside and left it in a dark corner. There was no plant but little plants stalks were still showing a little bit from the surface. I watered it once a month but nothing was happening.
In August I was almost ready to say good buy to the plant and moved it to the lighter spot. I started to water it weekly. In about 2 weeks I noticed the first leaves coming through.
The plant is happy and full of life. I still have it indoors but it seems to be begging to be outside and breath fresh air.
Simple things like this make me happy. I kind of feel that I might have a green thumb :) or just happy that I read the label.
