New to gardening

Hello, I've been programming since I was 13 and I love Ruby have done it the past 7 years. I recently got into gardening because my husband said I needed to do something besides "code" :) And I am finding it super fun!

I wanted a house plant, I have two big window seats. I think Ivy s are neat. I picked this up at a local greenhouse and planted it in a pot inside. It seems to be doing very well, here's a picture

On a whim walking out of the hardware store, I saw this hydrangea and now the biggest head has died off and the other two have changed from green to pink. I am wondering how to care for it now? I would like to try and add something to the dirt to make them turn purple (read about it) and wonder if its too late for this season to add acid to the dirt? should i cut back the head that died? currently when I got it

Basil! I got 2 basil plants that grew into four. I read about how to start cuttings and it worked! and have started cuttings in water and planted in dirt and given to friends and family. Fun!
