      No pets, but I do have plenty of houseplants (they need different care and attention to pets and they don’t poop on the kitchen floor).
      Mostly I have succulents like gasteria, pachyphytum and crassulas (look em up, they’re funky looking plants). I also have some chilli plants (my boyfriend says they’re very tasty, he likes them on pizza).
      There’s also four pots with venus flytraps in them and a pitcher plant, carnivorous plants are coooooool. Just take care to feed them with distilled or filtered water, the minerals in tap water will burn their roots and they will die 🙁

      Hi Roz,

      Yes, I have a fish aquarium at my house in India. They are amazing. We have clown fishes right now. It is also a proved fact that fishes have a calming effect on anyone who watches them glide serenely through the water. I just love my fishes and miss them a lot.
