Is This Possible?
Can I take an almost 
and bring it back into
bloom in less than an hour?

They say a picture is worth
a thousand words.
See for yourself!

Here are the step-by-step

Try this yourself and see what happens.
The plant started out like this.

As you can see there are a few
spindly, waxy looking leaves.
First you must cut them all back.
Save these-you may need them later.

 Your plant will now look like this.

Next- Take a 1875 WATT
blow dryer.
Place it 7-1/2" from plant
and turn it on 

Set your timer and 
apply blow dryer for 47 -1/2 minutes.

After time is up
Add 1/2 cup water.

Once again apply blow dryer
for an additional 9-3/4 minutes.
Make sure it is 2" from the plant.

If no green has appeared add
1/2 cup of filtered Spring water.

That should do it.
Stand back and gasp in awe.
Your plant should now look like this.

Within 5 more minutes
you will find that it has bloomed
and it should look like this.

It didn't work for you?
Ummmmm.....sorry I mighta lied because
it is, after all,
Hope yours is happy and relatively

I am
but wanted to give you an
April Fool's Day smile~

Oh Diana you did give me a laugh...the 47 minutes of using the blow dryer made me think "is she a might crazy!" Glad it was an April Fool's Day project because I just might have had to give it a try. :)! Hugs

Oh my gosh, you had me. I was like, "what, no way?" Although plants are living things, so I can imagine that could happen. My yellow flowers at my old house would open up in mid afternoon. : )

Happy April Diana!


Debby said...

Well I guess I’m the fool because I thought you were serious- I did find it hard to believe the blow was blowing for 45 minutes! The blow dryer’s little motor would burn out or you’d trip a circuit breaker.
Great April fool’s joke!

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, good one! You almost had me convinced! Enjoy your break! x K

Kathy said...

Kim said...

Ok, so you had me until I read I'd have to hold the hair dryer in place for 47 minutes. How gullible am I? I hope you had a lovely Easter my friend. xo

Yvonne said...

Okay, this is one of the best April Fools I have read in a long time. I began questioning it when the blow dryer had to be on for 47 1/2 minutes. So funny!
