    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.

    Anybody interested in baby Never Never plants? I am going to offer them up on a plant gifting page but wanted to gift a Chicken before a stranger :) NNA.jpg NNB.jpg NNC.jpg NND.jpg

    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)

    Anyone want some strings of hearts? Possibly orange river but not too sure. They're for sale at grocery stores here recently, but I only wanted a couple of strings and pieces for propagating fun.

    The SOH on top of my front door is halfway to the floor already! And the VSOH has grown like 2 new leaves. :lol:

    Anyone have a suction cup shelf that doesn’t fall down? I want to put some plants up on top of a couple windows (the only SW facing ones). I have (or will have) plants potted in plastic self watering 5” square pots and leca, just want a shelf to put them in.

    @lrrr have you taken the plunge into orchids? Just saw another one that's kinda cool - Flying Ducks!

    Based on my triostar I’m afraid. But they are soooo pretty.

    Oh it's gonna grow up with crispy edges, but I'll ignore those and focus on the middles.

    I totally forgot to show off my Hoya multiflora! It's my very first hoya to flower, and this is actually its second time! (I accidentally didn't water her during the first blooms. Thought she shared a water bin with another plant but turned out to be solo. Oops.)

    So bizarre, I love it.

    Is that a Lisa next to it?

    Yup and regular compacta/rope in front. Slowest growing plant ever but seems happy enough.

    In a rare bit of not-purchased joy, my oldest plant, my mama peace lily that I thought I'd shocked into death after a repotting, is alive!! Three separate pieces from the remnant stump are growing new shoots and roots in my prop box. No lie, I cried when I checked them today.
