Dish Garden and Me
Friends, do you know what a dish garden is? Dish garden is a garden which is made in a dish or in a bowl. In it, you plant small plant. But the important thing to remember before planting small plant is, you should know if the plant can live long in your dish garden.
On 7th November 2012, during our science class, we made this dish garden, I use a bowl, then put the soil in it. After that, I start to search the plant, Ms. May helped me in searching the plant and she also helped me in arranging the position of the plant so that it wouldn’t look so crowded. I try also to search moist to put at the bottom of the soil. This is the result :
For the first 3 weeks, it looked beautiful, fresh, and still alive. On the days after 3 weeks, I felt worried because the leaf of the tall plant started to change its color, and then it finally fell down. At first I was thinking, was it on its way to death? I asked my friends how to stop my plant changing its color into brown. I kept on spraying it. But still it changed its color. And then all the leaves fell. I give up and felt annoyed on taking care in it, I have sprayed it, I have given it sunlight, but it died.
On Friday afternoon, I and my family went to my father’s home town for 2 weeks, I left my dish garden at home alone. When I came back, I saw the plants and the moist had dry. Of course! No one take care of it. I didn’t ask someone to take care of it.
So I decided to start it all over again. I’ll change the dish, and put plants that are easy to live in a small place. And I promise to be more responsible with it, also take care of it so that it will live longer than the first dish garden that I make.
