Well, I don't have any if you don't count the plants on my desktop background. It's not that I don't like them but I live in an apartment and considering my laziness I'm sure none of the flowers could resist....now that I'm writing it ,I thought maybe I should go and buy a cactus...That could survive ,couldn't it ?

This is excellent!  I would word your first sentence one of these ways:

"Well, I don't have any unless you count the plants on my desktop background."

"Well, unless you count the plants on my desktop background, I dont' have any."

I changed "thought" to "think" to keep tense consistant.

GOOD JOB and as always,  written with you delightful sense of humor.

Are you sure about the ‘‘exist’’, I’m 99persent sure that is not what I meant and somehow doesn't fit right.

I meant that the flower cannot tolerate me and my lifestyle.

Actually "exist:" is correct because that means LIVE (or continue to live). The word "resist" means to fight against so you were very close.

In your environment and with your lifestyle, as you described, plants would probably not live (exist or continue to live).

In one sense, they would resist (or fight against that situation) BUT in English we would not use that word in this context.

Hope that clears up why I made the corrections I did.

You are doing very well - keep up te good work  :)

I haven't been on here in a while, and I just saw your comment. I agree with Senile's comments.  The word  "resist" has that meaning, but we wouldn't use it like that in English.  You could say:

"It's not that I don't like them but I live in an apartment and I'm sure none of the flowers could withstand / survive my laziness.
