    I will happily pay shipping or whatever you want! I only have baby pothos, spider plants, pilea, and some cacti right now. I do need to trim and repot my (regular) monstera though. Have till spring to find the perfect pot and pole.

    My birthday is Tuesday and I decided I’m going to the greenhouse to meet my bestie for some socially distant “outdoor” shopping and buying myself a birthday plant.

    @Basil that's so sweet! I'm still learning propagation and hope to figure it out by summer ie not kill things.

    Well I have plenty so I can prep boxes of cuttings for both of you. I’ll send a list of options and can start propagating them in April so they are rooted when arrived.

    I did a thing. In my defense, it was on sale and was a local pickup and has a really healthy root.

    A syngonium "only" but fate. I was looking for completely different thing, not even a plant, then this popped up AND was marked down AND in Hayward?!? Like, okay universe, I hear you.

    Happy to swap for a piece of my marble queen pothos once it's big enough to cut. It's not a particularly expensive plant, but it IS quite pretty. :mrgreen:

    Ooo I am currently propagating a leaf of the same @Vespidae ! I love it so much!

    Related - this is my current obsession. Dischidia nummularia aka String of Nickels aka String of Buttons. I want soooooo much!! This is my albo-variegeta monstera.

    @Vespidae I do have an agricultural permit so I could technically bring some to you once borders open on my next trip up north depending on the city

    Oh wow, thank you! Lol I am still so blown away that people (like you, evidently) are making proper money selling leaves, but in a "this is crazy but I am kind of impressed" way.

    @Lh718 I had to contact the shop owner and ask her to find one or set one aside for me when she next had them, because :loveu:. She is currently waiting for a stromanthe triostar for me, because I can't stop won't stop.

    Took a break from staring at my fronds unfurl.
    Spoiler alert: they are still unfurled.

    That is actually super cool. Like my plain Jane SOP but squished, in a good way.

    Me and my 12 pothos babies take offense to this.
