Green Thumb

My grandmother gave me this plant, a Alocasia Amazonica, also known as Elephant's Ear, or, as she called it in Spanish, cara de caballo (horse's face).

On closer inspection, the leaves have been chewed up! :(

A caterpillar? No! My cats!

Outside, I planted a carambola, or star fruit, tree (Averrhoa carambola) that I was given at work. Right now, it basically looks like a big twig!
