Involuntary Plant-slaughter

In case you missed the post about why I have lots of plants in my house, it's called Toxic Shock Syndrome (Part II) and you can read it here.

For the rest of you, I thought you'd be interested to know that I have already murdered one plant:

I could freak out and blame the toxic air in our apartment, but the truth is I over-watered this unfortunate fern the first day we got it.  Rayne said I should give the plants a little extra water after we potted them since the transplant process can be traumatic.  I interpreted this to mean that I should pour enough water to overflow the pot and create a rivulet our wood flooring.

I could say that I did it on purpose to keep the other plants in line.  But I didn't.  I'm just a terrible gardener.
