I received this sweet hydrangea for Valentine's Day (my Shmoopie knows what I like). I woke up yesterday morning to find it completely wilted and quite sad looking. My immediate thought was, "great, I killed another plant. Oh well, I guess I have to throw this out now."

Then I took a moment and read the care card that came with it and I still wasn't sure what to do. It prefers "medium light". I'm not going to pretend to know what medium light is.

So I took all my knowledge of how to care for plants -- water and light -- and after giving it a big drink, set it in the kitchen window and ta-da! It perked right up and seems much happier.

Water and light. Total cure~all.
