A WOMAN is in stitches after watering and looking after a plant for months – only to discover it’s actually a weed.
She explained that after nurturing a plant since last year, she finally decided to look up what species it was.
To her horror, she realised she's been watering a weed for the past few months – which even has its own ceramic pot.
She shared a snap on social media of the healthy-looking plant after finding out what it really was, and it turns out a lot of people have made the same mistake.
Writing on Facebook group Gardening On A Budget Official, she said: “Might as well post this.. Give you all a good laugh…
“I've been watering and feeding this pot for months, well since last year….
I've just realised… It's a WEED
“And I've just realised… It's a WEED.
“But I've done some research n it does have pretty purple flowers so I'm keeping it.”
Thousands of people liked her post – as most admitted they've done exactly the same thing.
One person said: "I have done the same mistake.”
Another wrote: “I’ve done exactly the same, I was really proud of how it was flourishing.”
A third admitted: “Omg. I've been watering mine too! I put some wild flowers seeds last year and thought they could be it!!!
“Thanks for clarifying that for me.”
While this person added: “I have the same and did the same thing, watering and waited to see the flowers, no clue what was.
"It's beautiful for a weed tho.”
And this woman made a stunning flower wall in her garden using bouquets from The Range & fairy lights – and it’s just like Kim K’s.
