Whoever's talking here is bragging about their green thumb.
So the word in the blank has got to have something to do with helping things "grow."
We can eliminate (B) and (D) immediately, since "neglect" and "starvation" don't
exactly contribute to healthy houseplants...
...which suddenly explains why no one asks us to house sit for them anymore.
(A) is in the right ball park. Fertilizing a plant definitely helps it grow.
"Fertilize" refers to adding extra special nutrients, though, and earlier in the sentence
the speaker only mentioned watering the plant. We can cross (E) off the list as well, because
we don't usually "increase" to describe the growing of plants.
The answer can only be (C), which totally makes sense. When you nurture a plant correctly,
it most certainly grows.
Unless we take care of them, because then they die horrible deaths. Really...don't
give us your plants. We're not even joking here.
