I got home from my trip yesterday and was met with some lovely surprises. πŸ₯° My Greg mug arrived safely! πŸ«ΆπŸΌβ˜•οΈ And this morning I had my first cup of coffee in it. It’s such a lovely piece and I thank Greg staff for being so kind to give these out, they really make the community feel a lot closer and involved. πŸ˜„ Everyone here is sooo kind and I am truly thankful to have found you all! πŸ€—
@Nataliesplants @FirstCanna since you guys asked to see it, here goes ☺️ it’s so cute!

I was also met with a super surprise, my Monstera Albo cutting put out its first leaf since I got it a month and a half ago and it looks like it’s already throwing fenestrated leaves πŸ₯³πŸͺ΄ this was very exciting for me. Can’t wait till it opens fully πŸ₯°

And another super surprise was the cutting I got from @PlantCutie305 has put out it’s first roots and new growth! (That I can see from in perlite because it hit the sides πŸ˜…) I think @Nataliesplants and @PlantMompy were trying different prop methods so, here’s my update 🀣 to be fair it did make it to my house in one night so it’s recovery probably didn’t need as long as several days. πŸ€”πŸ₯²

Anyways, it’s good to be back, I didn’t get to post till today because I spent most my time yesterday tending to/checking up on my plants from being gone a week! No casualties! Yay! πŸ₯³πŸ˜„

Brigitte, I just love these photos - the brightness and color - you've captured these images beautifully. 🌸

What happy surprises!!!!! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š Congrats on the mug!!!
@PlantMompy yaaay πŸ˜„ I’m glad it could make you smile πŸͺ΄βœ¨ @Roserade thank you!! Congrats on yours too πŸ«ΆπŸΌπŸ€—
@PlantingPeace I’m glad your home safe and all your plants are safe as well… that mug is awesome!!! And your new growth is spectacular πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ€©β€¦ maybe I need to leave on vacation so I get some surprises as well🀣🀣🀣. Welcome back Bridget!!!πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
@FirstCanna thank you!!! πŸ˜„ 🀣 vacationing is like a trick, right? A time skip of a week in plant progress πŸ˜… you totally should do it πŸ˜‰
@PlantingPeace I don’t think I can do that… I would miss my plants too much!πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
@FirstCanna 🀣 I feel that, I woulda stayed, but my family would been sad if I did. I’m sure your plants will appreciate you staying with them though. πŸ˜€
Congratulations πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸΎ on your Greg mug!! What kind of plant is your cutting? It is absolutely beautiful!
@AC73LoveCats thank you! πŸ₯°
The first two plant pics are a Monstera Albo and the second two are of a philodendron Burle Marx πŸ˜„
About vacations….We went away for 2 weeks in October. I put all the plants I asked my pet sitter to water, on my plant shelf and she did. I asked her to do it at one week. The rest I figured could go for 2 weeks. I was right, except my Konjac surprised me. It was beautiful and healthy when I left and totally white when I got back and starting to tip over. I checked with my cousin who sent me the corm and she said hers, which grow outside, keel over and go dormant for the winter, then start up from the corm again in the spring. Only hers don’t go white before they die back. I cut it off, watered once and put it in the pantry in a cool place until spring. I hope the 2 weeks of not watering didn’t kill it and it is indeed dormant. Here it is, before and after vacation. 😭😳😒
Okay I LOVEEEEE this. So stinking cute. I want to get one for my home. πŸ’š
Whoops, will try again.
It is a Konjac, not a Bodhi tree.
Congratulations hun beautiful plants 😍
@AC73LoveCats ooo! That is an interesting reaction. πŸ€” I hope it is in dormancy too πŸ₯² I guess we will find out next spring πŸ˜…
@RavenBlair2022 they are really adorable!!! I ordered mine on Etsy from this seller PlushMoonTerrarriumCo
She has a bunch of vessels but I personally chose 6 moss balls β€œmossballs only” option (it’s an option on every listing I believe), and they still put them in this simple cute glass container which I appreciated. 🫢🏼
@CorvidFan thank you!!! Taking photos of my plants really does relax and bring me joy, so I’m glad the happiness in color translates. πŸ₯°
@Indoorgreens thank you Janet!!! πŸ˜„βœ¨πŸͺ΄
What a wonderful welcome home!
Yayy congrats!!!
@jaysjungle literally couldn’t have been better 😊
Love it! #GregGang
@hoyahead thank you!!! πŸ₯°
And side note update, the plants you passed onto me are doing well! They’ve been acclimating to a new environment. The melo with two leaves lost one πŸ₯² but the one it still has is alive and strong and it’s started pushing out new growth. 🫢🏼 the Syngonium also didn’t like the change too much at first πŸ₯² but it’s put out 2 new leaves that are beginning to unfurl! The philo is also pushing out new growth with two new leaves πŸ˜„ I’m just waiting till they grow a bit more to make a post of their progress, but rest assured they’re all still alive 🀣☺️
Yay for Greg mugs and having a place to share our plant joy! πŸ’š Congratulations on all of these good things!
@Jana85 thank you! πŸͺ΄βœ¨πŸ˜Š I’m excited for when you get yours in the next batch πŸ₯°
Lovely welcome home, congrats on your Greg mug. Glad you're back and no plant casualties. πŸ₯°πŸŽ‰
@PlantingPeace currently on Etsy. 🀩🀩
@Sassylimey thank you Sarah! πŸ₯° it really was a great welcome back! πŸ˜„
@RavenBlair2022 Yesssss, Queen!!! 🀣 if you do end up getting one or some, ya gotta tag me when they come in 🫢🏼✨😁
Sorry I’ve been out with the flu so just saw this! I AM SO EXCITED for you!! You and @FirstCanna were some of the first friends I made here so thankful to see it come full circle! Congrats on the mug you deserve it πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸͺ΄πŸŒ±β˜•οΈ
Also here’s an update on mine! My roots are coming in but I think yours are longer so far! @PlantMompy how are yours going?
I haven't put it in anything other than water yet πŸ˜‚ but here it is! Old roots are good and new roots are coming in! This was a week or so ago, the new roots are more than 2x the length now.
@Nataliesplants oof! I’m sorry you’ve been sick, I hope you’re starting to feel better, but I’m glad you’re okay! I was low key worried you’d disappear like @Alkiplants did πŸ₯² and I see you and @FirstCanna the same, some of the first friends I made in here πŸ˜… and @TruthfulApricot too 🫢🏼 I think it’s extra special that we got to experience the β€œinitiation” together 🀣

That’s fantastic to see it growing roots! And @PlantMompy too!!! πŸ˜„ excellent work! πŸ˜‰
Welcome home! And congratulations!
