Happy #WhatTheSuccWednesday! I’m really late with my post today because…life. I’m sorry if you were waiting on pins and needles 😂 I kid. SO, I have a lot to report this week! 1&2: My #GhostPlant cuttings are REALLY rooting! 👻🤗💖 I credit the Grow formula from #WetheWild . It’s an Australian company that recently made its products available in the US, and I can’t say enough good things about this stuff! (NOT sponsored but I wouldn’t turn it down! I want to try every single product now!) 🌱 It’s concentrated worm castings and my plants are all producing like I’ve never seen. And rooting is taking half the time it usually does! Which brings me to No. 3: my #TigerToothAloe which lost all its roots back when I was a #Succulent newbie and didn’t understand correct soil mixes, ratios etc. I’ve had her in water and she starting growing her roots back immediately, but as you can see, it’s really taking off now! In No. 4, my #TaciveriaTasha is blooming, which is always fun 🌸 and in No. 5 (I might be cheating here, because I don’t think this counts as a succulent, but I’m so excited I have to share!), I took a leaf cutting from my #KenyanViolet and stuck it in water 2 months ago to see if it would root. Now, not only are the roots numerous and thick, but look at the baby plant starting to grow! I immediately planted it in loose soil and can’t wait to see what happens next! I have one more fun update in the comments (darn 5 photo limit!😂) #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #SucculentLove #PlantTherapy #SucculentSquad #Succulents #AfricanViolet #RootPorn #Aloe #PLANTMAFIA #Propagation

Good Morning! #GregGang! Please stay away from this shop on #etsy . I can’t say it’s an #EtsyScamShops member but I can tell you that I never leave less than stellar reviews unless there’s a real issue. And this is a first! I have over 1k plants and most aren’t on the app. I ordered two large spiral aloes which they sent and right out of the boxes, there were broken leaves, they looked a bit overwatered, and had mushy leaves. I set them on a shelf and woke up to one leaking sap from the bottom. That same day, as the plants had arrived very dirty, I went to wipe the leaves off one and they started falling off. Next day, rot started taking over. When I contacted them, they said they didn’t know what happened and they would wait until other buyers would review the other aloes. One plant is unlike the other even if they look the same. One may have been overwatered more than the others. Logical concept, yes? No, it appears they cannot fathom the point. The picture they sent me was supposed to be of my aloe but that’s just a picture. The chance it was actually mine is questionable because I have pictures of what I received and they don’t look like the picture they sent which looks exactly like their listing image except for the date. They offered me one replacement that I could drive over to pick up once they move to Pflugerville from California (??) during my initial message to them. Well, now the other aloe is a goner as well. Clearly, they were overwatered and damaged before shipping and they are saying they don’t know what happened.I’ll let you all tell me what you think. I’ll add the link so you can see the videos in the reviews. And I will also attach images of what I saw last night and this morning. Save yourself the money and do not buy from them. There are no refunds and obviously they aren’t aware that I am very aware of caring for aloes, agaves, and succulents. I have not heard back from them since my message last night telling them the aloes were rotting. I spent $200 on plants I expected would be healthy but that’s not what I got. And rather than say, “We can send another one out to you right away!”, they want me to drive 1.5 hours once they move to Texas. Nope! I hate doing this because I find it tasteless however, I’d rather you know whom you cannot trust via their service.
