I’m a plant murderer

It seems that no matter how I try to keep them alive, they keep dying :( I’ve tried succulents, palms, ferns, trees, you name it, they die.

Until I learned I was watering them too much.

So maybe try another type of plant, you know likely to die. There are some extreme style plants short of a flame thrower you will likely not kill them.

Scientists believe that plants scream when they're stressed.
You tortured them for they were murdered.

It’s a perfect culturally acceptable plant to kill. It even comes pre amputated so you don’t even have to feel bad about killing it.

A spider plant. They are easy to keep alive! My rule for all my plants generally is to wait till the soil is dry, then water. Repeat.

Usually overwatering is the problem

Try leaving more time between watering than you think! Like if you want to water them on Monday...wait until Wednesday..

I have a green thumb, but that really equals detailed and dedicated plant care. Nearly dead plants are given to me, I tend to their specific needs and they come back to life. Check each plant by name and look up what they prefer, less or more water etc. (Over watering is a common error). Same with sunlight. Fertilize as indicated per plant. Pests, must get rid of them if infested.
They aren't decor, they live and so have needs. I've seen people put a plant into a dark corner or right beside a hot gas stove because it looks good there, then wonder why it's dead a month or so later.
