Saturday-Send Good Growing Thoughts To My Poor Lil Plant

Ok, before you think I'm completely crazy (or rather, even more crazy than I already am) let me give you a little back story on this plant. When I had Jake, my mother in law (Thanks Mom!) gave me a basket with 6 plants in it. I lovingly put all the plants into their own separate pots and nurtured them till they all died, 1 by 1-EXCEPT THIS ONE! (this one even managed to make the trip across country!)

So, I had it in one of those planters that you pour the water in the bottom, and the string supposedly brings the water to the plant. Well, it was working for a long time, then, just in the past couple of weeks, I've noticed my poor plant dying (and before you ask, YES, I was watering it!!). You can't really tell by this picture below, but it's all dry and breaking off (and out of the little stock holes) Here it is before I cleaned her up:

and this is my poor plant now, after giving her new soil, a trim, and watering her from the top. Isn't she pathetic?

So, going strictly on sentimental value, I need good growing thoughts/prayers. I was practically in tears trimming the plant up =( I hate being sentimental over stupid things LOL
