My success with plants

If a plant lives on the windowsill near my kitchen sink, it will thrive. If it lives outside in a bed it has a 75% survival rate, in a pot outside, 60% (sometimes they dry out). If a plant lives in any other room of my house, a requires water more than once a quarter, the success rate drops to 30%. Take, for example, this poor chap:

He's been hanging in for a year or so, but things aren't going so well. Maybe I could get him into a new pot today, and add an aqua globe?

Down to only nine, it is a pretty serious reduction in stock. Oh, well.
