Potting My Revenge

Just when I thought my dreams were within reach, disaster struck. My owner, in a twist of fate, placed a different plant in the coveted fibreglass pot. There it sat, smugly basking in the glory that was meant to be mine. My leaves drooped in despair, but not for long. A fiery determination ignited within me. If I couldn’t have the pot, I would become the star of the home by any means necessary.

My plan was simple yet devious. I would grow, and grow fast. I’d outshine that fibreglass-hogging intruder with my sheer leafy magnificence. I started soaking up every ray of sunlight with newfound enthusiasm, guzzling water like there was no tomorrow. My owner took notice and began showering me with even more attention, mistaking my ambition for a growth spurt.

But it wasn’t enough. I needed an edge. That’s when I overheard my owner talking about designer plant pots. A light bulb went off in my pot. If I couldn’t have the fibreglass pot, I’d aim for something even better. A designer pot that would shine so bright it made the fibreglass pot look like a dying star. I started dropping subtle hints, shedding a leaf or two near the computer, rustling my foliage whenever my owner considered the possibility that they would once again buy indoor pots for plants in Melbourne.

My efforts paid off. One day, my owner came home with a pot that was beyond my wildest dreams. It was a designer piece, a work of art, making the fibreglass pot look mundane in comparison. With a triumphant rustle, I was transplanted into my new, luxurious abode.

As I settled into my stunning new pot, I couldn’t help but notice the fibreglass pot plant looking over with a hint of envy. A smug smile crept across my leaves. I was the undisputed star of the home once again. And as for the fibreglass pot? Let’s just say it’s back on the shelf, waiting for its next occupant. Revenge is a dish best served leafy, after all.
