A dedicated succulent owner shared her recent devastating discovery about her beloved plant of 2 years.
"I've had this beautiful succulent for about 2 years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful coloring, just an over all perfect plant. I had it up in my kitchen window. I had a watering plan for it, if someone else tried to water my succulent I would get so defensive because I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent," she wrote in the now viral Facebook post.
When she attempted to repot the succulent, she discovered that it had been plastic all this time! "I put so much love into this plant! I washed it's leaves. Tried my hardest to keep it looking it's best, and it's completely plastic!"
After many news sites got ahold of her story, the Home Depot personally sent her several succulents. And this time they were real!
