Snek I bought yesterday for $6.98 the pot is breaking and the roots growing out of the pot. I'm interested too see how many plants are in this pot, so far only 1 person guessed 8 from my previous post...I know there are more than 8 plants in there, I'm about to find out. #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #plantingonabudget #snakeplant #greggers #crazyplantlady
๐Ÿ˜ We're gunna need a final count when you're done..
@Sassylimey Holy sh*t รโ€™ve never seen any thing like that. The energy that plant must have come up with to break that pot apart?? SUPER PLANTโšก๏ธโš›๏ธ Oh Iโ€™m gonna guess 11, eleven plants!
I had to cut the pot away, oh my the roots are so dense and tight it's pricing very difficult to separate I don't want to damage the roots, HELP, @sarahsalith and anyone who's encountered this ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Once I can get this per baby apart @discreetwildyam
Oh there's more than 11 in there Monika ๐Ÿ˜‚ @Ms.Persnickety
Swish it in water and let the water make pockets you can untangle from?
I was thinking that also Ashley, those roots are really compacted ๐Ÿฅบ @PlantMompy
This is what's left of that pot ๐Ÿ˜œ
Oh I love it, so light and pastel like
Thank you @Jilliebeanstalk It is a very pretty plant, but it's going to take hours to separate those roots, got most of the dirt off but it's so tight I can't move any plants from each other. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
@Sassylimey no need to recycle that one ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคซ
Oh my gosh thatโ€™s crazy
@Sassylimey who says you have to??
Sometimes I find grabbing one plant and moving it in circles helps get things started.
I got it done only took me an hour. There were 14 plants in that little 6" pot, now to settle these bebe's in their new homes. @Jilliebeanstalk that's why I had to separate her ๐Ÿ˜œ
Thank you @PlantMompy @Mrgncrch
Lol @Ms.Persnickety that pot is going straight in the trash ๐Ÿคฃ
Oh. My. Goodness ๐Ÿ˜ณ
@discreetwildyam mhmm! This is such a score!
@AguaViviente $6.98 for 14 plants? *chefs kiss* We love it.
All done, 2 1/2 hours.
12 in the 9 " pot, 3 in the 6" pot and I only broke 2 leaves so I'm propagating them, truly a score they work out at a little less than $2 a plant ๐Ÿฅฐ #plantingonabudget
Thatโ€™s amazing!
Oh my!
@Sassylimey itโ€™s probably like phew ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ now I can breathe!!
@Sassylimey wow 14 what a score๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™‚
@Sassylimey where did you end up getting this awesome score from? Also, have you found out what type of snake plant this could be?
Lol Jillian that's exactly how I feel, so I'm sure that baby is feeling better, she can finally breathe ๐Ÿคช her soil was very wet but so tight, I had to pour water over the roots to loosen that soil, then the whole plant was so tightly grown together that I was only able to separate the one part with three plants, there was no way I could even attempt to break the rest apart so they got stuck one the pot together ๐Ÿ˜… @Jana85 @Katrinabrown86 @CalmTobacco
Yes it was a great find ๐Ÿฅฐ
@AguaViviente I really hunt for those plants that have many in a pot, it's called #plantingonabudget ๐Ÿคฃ
@AguaViviente I found the plant at Walmart and I don't know what type of snek it is, she (now they ๐Ÿคฃ) are so pretty, I love the colour.
@Sassylimey tbh, my gut was telling me Walmart lol, they really do have some awesome plants on clearance ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. Your plant looks like an Sansevieria โ€˜Night Owlโ€™ we found this one for less than $4 at Walmart when visiting my family in Texas lol. We separated it and I only ended up taking a cutting, which didnโ€™t make it. Itโ€™s such a beautiful snake plant ๐ŸŒฑ ๐Ÿ’šโœจ
@Sassylimey Fourteen beautiful snake plants in a six inch pot is wow. Before you know it, youโ€™ll probably have many more. Lol. ๐Ÿฅฐ
@Sassylimey omgggg
@AguaViviente I found it, it's a Night Owl snake plant
@Sassylimey I am so scared to do this to my night owl๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ His pot is compacted w manyyyyyy plants in one. I got to get my hands on more pots if I do this๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Wow ๐Ÿคฉโ€ฆ so beautiful. This is actually on my wishlistโ€ฆ I guess Iโ€™m making a trip to Walmart ๐Ÿ˜
@PeacefulBohoBby I know how you feel, I was so afraid to take that plant apart, seems they grow very tight together, I literally brother one piece off that 3 plants in one, it has lots of roots so I wasn't too concerned.
I used one large pot and then smaller pot for the other I broke off. I know they like to be tight in their pots, but it was busting the pot, I had to re-pot๐Ÿ˜‰
That is crazy!! And what a beautiful plant!
Thank you @ManyLime she's really pretty, I got blessed ๐Ÿฅฐ
@Sassylimey Did you rinse the roots in water to loosen them up?? ๐Ÿ‘€
Yes I did @PeacefulBohoBby. In fact I had to pour water over those roots the soil was so compacted amongst the roots, it took an hour just to untangle enough roots to be able to loosen the soil... It was a mess but worthwhile!
