Taking care of plants is far more difficult than it looks, especially for those who are not born with a green thumb. Since there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to growing plants, a lot of first-time plant parents are easily disheartened when their babies don’t flourish the way they’re supposed to. This, however, shouldn’t make them throw in the towel just yet, because sometimes plants just need more time to adapt, mature, and fill out. If you’re looking for some inspiration to continue being a plant parent, below are photos of neglected plants that have recovered amazingly after getting another shot at life.

Abandoned in an office for five long months, this Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema Stripes) was uprooted from its original pot and was brought home in a box by its new owner. The plant was then potted into a well-draining soil and was let to dry every after watering. A year later, all its wilted leaves had bounced back splendidly. The plant also grew several new ones and even pushed out a flower at one point.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
