A funny sight indeed, sometimes sad
. This is the term I used in reference to a plant which has lost all of its leaves
, and is therefore bare to the stem
, whichever it might be.
A naked plant may result from damage to the root system
, or poor drainage
and thus leaf rot
. It may also occur in some varieties of ficus
, or other fickle plant life, when their environment is alter
ed. There are some varities that might drop all of their leaves after being moved only a few feet
, it's insanity!
Poor little naked plants that are only bare due to neglect
are a very sorry sight and sometimes bring tears
to my eyes. I often purchase dying plants in a supermarket and love them back to life
.. like my small palm'y that was on its way to plant heaven
when I purchased it. If you're not going to take care of the little darlings, don't keep them in your store
, yeesh. It's not as if they can get up and walk from your imbecilic establishment
when they need water
I'm passionate about my plant life
. Any way, naked plants should be avoided, if at all possible. Take care of the little things.
