Have fun. I just watered 18.
Ugh I have 7! Iโ€™m currently making a game plan on how I will get my one year old to stay down for his nap and quietly tip toe downstairs to begin my plant duties! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿซ 
@babyfiretiger13 I have an 11 month old! (Turns 1 May 6th) I feel your pain... Which is why plants still aren't watered ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ
@melodey Oh the struggle!! Okay so I got 4 watered, snoozed one all by the time I hear thumps upstairs and him yelling โ€œmamaโ€ ๐Ÿฅบ lol I feel so accomplished! (And so out of breath from running upstairs) ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ just gotta do what you can momma ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’•
I feel ya. I started using large bins, putting as many plants in there as I could, then let them bottom water all at once. Clear tubs, so I can see the water level & if anyone somehow overflows or tips over ๐Ÿ˜†
Best idea I ever came up with! Also works great to transport them if your giving a bath!
@Ailysa that's actually a good idea. Everyone is getting #buttchugs today in the sink lol. My bigger ones...in the tub
@babyfiretiger13 I got all mine watered.... finally ๐Ÿ˜…
@melodey yay!!! I know how good that feels! ๐Ÿ˜…
@babyfiretiger13 mission accomplished ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿชด๐Ÿšฟ
@Ailysa very smart! How long do you keep them in the water?
@WinIvy it fluctuates. Mostly I check to see if & how wet the top soil is (could take a minute for like a tiny 2" starter). I've left some plants in almost all day (partially by accident) due to not enough water or plants in the bucket. Some times, they're just crazy thirsty! It mostly just takes time learning what your plants need/want, as well as how lazy you might be feeling ๐Ÿ˜†
Thatโ€™s my normal ๐Ÿ˜œ
I open my app and see your post, but look at mine ๐Ÿ˜… sometimes it's 50ish
@foliagegirl ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ต I'll be at that level soon enough ๐Ÿ˜… ...at the rate I'm going... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

I'm sure your waterings can become an all day event
@melodey nah, takes about 15 minutes tops โ˜บ๏ธ they all get top watered except the tillandsia I move to the shower to have the water stream onto them, but that only takes a couple minutes extra

And yep, having heaps of plants is truly addictive!
@foliagegirl btw I love your #philodendronderrieres tag. Gonna show mine tomorrow ๐Ÿคฃ
@melodey haha thank you! Yes, please do! I love seeing everyone's #philodendronderrieres ! ๐Ÿฅฐ
14 for me!
Lol i watered 18 yesterday and the same 18 today dried so fast because of the heat!
24 for me today.
I have ten also! I feel you on the baby thing, I did not do well with my plants while mine were little, so I only had 2 or 3 at a time. But now there older and love me having all the plants, sometimes they even help, so Iโ€™ve started going a little plant crazy ๐Ÿ˜†
I had 9 today ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ
49 today ๐Ÿฅด I have been way behind on my watering lately lol
Another 5 today ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜
