This is a long one (shocking I know, but bear with me). If you don’t want to read it all scroll down and read the last 3 short paragraphs 😂 A year ago this room was empty of plants (except a gorgeous cyclamen my parents gave me). I’m a May baby and my mom has always given me plants for my birthday intended for my yard (hydrangea, hibiscus, etc). May 2023 I actually told her to stop buying me plants for my yard because I didn’t want to take care of them. 🥺 By August, I had a lot of things going on personally and needed something positive to focus on (other than my adorable Aussie Sophie🥰). I had a friend who loved indoor plants so I figured, why not try. I ordered a mystery 3 pack on Amazon for like $14… and there it began. Fast forward to May 2024 and I have between 200 & 300 plants (indoors and out). I’m in the process of making my deck feel like a tropical oasis (pictures to come once staining and sealing is complete). My home is 30 years old so I had the previous landscaping removed to start fresh. I haven’t planted yet, but I’ve got everything where I think I want it. Leaving everything where it is for a week or so to make sure the plants and I agree they’re where they should be. I’ve added a few photos of where things are now. I’ll share pics when it’s done. While stress and a need for distraction were part of it, the main catalyst that contributed to my plant addiction was the Greg app and this amazing community. Not only did the app help me learn to provide proper care, it helped me find people who full of positivity & knowledge (and of course the extra plants that I “needed” to buy 😍). I’m not sure why I decided to write this novel this morning, but the main message is one of gratitude. This isn’t just a plant app. It’s family, friends, support, encouragement, creativity, sharing, and probably most importantly, a place we’ve found where we can be ourselves because we all understand each other (and likely the majority of us need a Plant Addicts Anonymous support group 🫣😂). This is one of the few (if not only) social media communities where we’re all just kind to each other. And we’ve got the freedom to create new groups when the mood strikes 🙂 There are some great ones out there! Feel free to add ones you’ve founded or love to participate in down in the comments! If you haven’t already, join us on Facebook (search groups for “The Amigos of Greg”). And if you’re not on Facebook, join the Discord Server #GregSavesPlants! These groups were started last week so we can chat a little easier while the Greg Team is working on that feature for the app! We can’t wait! We’re really enjoying these groups and would love for everyone to join us! My thanks to @RJG and the #GregTeam. You’ve managed to gather a global group of wholesome, wonderful humans by “just” creating a plant care app. #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #PlantParenthood #GregCommunity #GreggersSupportingGreggers #corinne #HappyPlants #Greggers #BestAppOnTheInternet #PlantFriendsAreTheBestFriends
