I was bought a Bonsai tree last year and it's sparked a bit of an interest in me for green and brown living things. 

I've never really even looked at trees or plants before, they've always just been part of the background - but now that I've discovered them, I'm pretty hooked.

I've realised that I don't really care about growing flowers or food, and I don't like things that are already grown. My fascination seems to be with growing plants and trees from seed or from cuttings.

I definitely don't have natural abilities. The vast majority of my seedlings have fallen over and died - but I've had a few successes. I seem to enjoy growing things that I probably shouldn't be attempting, like my Baobab trees.

I'm also experimenting with (hydro|aero|fog)ponics, but it's still early days with that.

Anyone else here green fingered?

I grew pot once when I was a teenager. It ended up drying in the rafters of our garage while a local cop stood almost directly underneath, and asked my dad if he had noticed a break-in taking place at the neighbours house the previous evening.

MrsD. has had mixed success with house plants...plants that don't need much watering tend to thrive.

I am no good at all at it, and don't really try. Just doesn't maintain my interest. I do like to see a good bonsai though. 

Our current garden is in fact a yard, and I do have designs on doing something about that, so hopefully by the end of this summer I'll have magically learned how to do some of the basics and want to keep my kid off my immaculate lawn and so on.
