    So exciting! If you don’t mind sharing how much did it cost to get your hands on those? I definitely don’t have room for another monster monstera but I waaaaant one. Lol.

    Two of my sticks were $79 each and may have been late night tipsy purchases. The first one, which is just sitting there but not rotting either, was my bday purchase and cost the same as the other 2 combined :bored::wall:

    I’m thinking sprouty thoughts for you, lol.

    I IG stalked a coworker and saw his plants and txted him to see if he wanted any of my excess of babies.

    Are they easy to take care of?

    Mine is doing much better than my calathea, as a benchmark. I think it’s pretty easy care.

    In fact.

    Damn, that is gorgeous @CoolWife ! I keep separating mine because no room, but yours is #goals.

    @lrrr I find them pretty easy. They don't like to get completely dry, and they like bright, indirect light. Bonus points for extra humidity, but so far the babies are doing fine outside of my janky humidity shelf.

    Mine gets nothing special, dry house air and it’s been a few feet from a North window for a while. I even shoved it into a smaller pot than the one it came in. It won’t fit back where it was so I guess it’s living there now.
    Lol, this is the plant I tried to sell after I got it because it was very STFU you're wrong for me, but now I like it.
    (It’s name is Tan, named not for the fashion guru but it’s scientific name)
