I started off with a Half Moon Cactus and Aloe Vera plant from Wal-mart. I also picked up some soil and planted a garlic clove as well. My end goal at the beginning of my plant journey was to be able to grow food that I could use in cooking, but that was very intimidating for me as my radish plant is not doing too well right now and I thought I should take baby steps.

I also wanted to have plants that I could decorate my place with and would be easy to take care of... so of course, I jumped on the succulent boat. I had heard from my friend that I could get very cheap succulents from the Goldenwest College Swapmeet in Huntington Beach. So I made my way over and picked up 6 succulents for 5 dollars! They had such a large variety... and the cheapest prices I've seen so far.
My New Succulents!
I was able to get some cheap pots from Daiso and I was able to fit all my succulents in them.
Peace Lily Plant
This is when I realized that I had a plant problem. It didn't help that we had green day at work and they gave succulents away!

Still on my list is 1) to learn how to propagate succulents 2) buy a large indoor plant for my apartment, 3) learn to plant herbs.
