@KikiGoldblatt we hope to help you build your oasis back as best we can!

Nothing can replace what's lost but the nice thing about plants is we can always start anew.

Yay! Thank you @sarahsalith for putting all of this together! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I can’t wait to donate a piece of my oasis to @KikiGoldblatt πŸŒΏπŸ’š
@sarahsalith @Kiersten it works now, thank you guys! ❀️
@sarahsalith I’ll let you do the tagging πŸ˜‚
This is perfect 🀩 you guys are awesome
@sarahsalith Oh! You should add Grow Lights to the form and #SpringIntoSummer this so the plant can go to her ☺️
@KikiGoldblatt we are here for you! If you need help never be afraid to ask! There are resources to help! We are wishing you the best!!!
I hope you’re doing ok @KikiGoldblatt πŸ™ brighter days are ahead 🌱❀️

Thank you @sarahsalith for coordinating, it means a lot!
@sarahsalith I’m in!
I would like to send grow lights. I asked Kiki to let me know so the lights can start arriving before plants do. Thank you @sarahsalith for creating this post.
Whoa what happened? What's going on? Is kiki okay?? 😱
@ABCD I was thinking and maybe you could send her some VSS? I could also send her SS but I don’t know if she will have room for both or which one she likes best @KikiGoldblatt
@sarahsalith this is amazing! Thank you for putting it together. πŸ’š
Done!! Sending you lots of love ❀️ @KikiGoldblatt
This is awesome, makes me proud to be a part of Greg, seeing this outpouring of love πŸ’•
Kristy's heart and soul was poured into her plants and Gregging. She is reaping the love she has sown in the Greg community. 😍πŸ₯°πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸ’―πŸ’›
@Kiersten @sarahsalith is there anything else that Kiki needs, Sarah maybe an Amazon wishlist/registry and people can help out that way as well? @FitSedum mentioned grow lights which is brilliant!
@sarahsalith I’m here to send love in the form of plants, lights, stands.
I’m sending over two grow lights today via Amazon. I’ll send more in the next few days. I know they were important for her setup!
@Kiersten what have I missed?
@Bigleaves Donate your umbrella tree or money tree or any ones like that !! πŸ₯°
@ElvishForester , im also in the dark.
@ABCD you beat me to some folks! Good job, Peter! πŸ’š
Thank you @sarahsalith for putting this together!
We love you @KikiGoldblatt!
Done! Filled out the form! - I can send little succulent leaf cuttings!
@sarahsalith I will take a look when I get home to see what I have from her list.

Thanks for organizing our efforts, and do let us know if there are non-plant items we can donate as well.
I would love to donate via an Amazon link or otherwise! I’ve never shipped plants before so I will leave that to the experts.
Oh no did something happen?
@AggroResting all we know is that she’s lost all of her plants and is living elsewhere. It’s devastating. We are trying to help her recreate her garden and entire setup.
I would love to help !! Filling out the form now :))
@sarahsalith 😍πŸͺ΄β€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸΌ
Omg 😱 I am so amazed about this post. Thank you all sooooo much. This means so much to me.
@FitSedum omg thats terrible 😞 Im very sorry to hear that hope you are safe @KikiGoldblatt . I will take a look when I get home and see what I can do
@kaleena I have links to more grow lights but I’m thinking about shelving maybe? @sarahsalith do you know if @KikiGoldblatt will need plant stands? Maybe add that to the list if so?
Grow lights: I sent one already.

@FitSedum that's a great idea! There's a link and at the bottom, under "other plants I can offer" just add the grow lights. ☺️
@sarahsalith I will do it right now. Thanks!
@PlantyPlanter I would TOTALLY dig some up for @KikiGoldblatt (:
Thank you so much @sarahsalith for helping put this together and support a fellow Gregger in need. I just filled out the form πŸ’š
@sarahsalith I didn’t even think of that! Great idea!
@calvina great idea! I'm wondering if it would be less expensive to ship if we do it as a gift card, though. I also don't know how much space she has at the moment.
@FitSedum
I'll gladly contribute. Whatever Kiki is going thru, from the short time I've been on her I've seen she's a wonderful soul.πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š
@HyggeVibes 😁 I haven't gotten all they way down the thread yet, but I added this link. https://greg.app/post/274YMA/
@ElvishForester sorry- I added this link for clarification. ☺️ https://greg.app/post/274YMA/
@ShibaSunroom ooh!! That's gonna be great!!!
@KikiGoldblatt we got your back Kiki! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
@sarahsalith I had contacted Kiki and asked about the lights. I think we may want to put it together in a gift card so Kiki can order/buy anything else they may need. The issue is that everything may come from different places. Gift cards can be from Amazon or any home store. Is there a way to get Kiki’s input on what they need or had in real time inventory so that the items other than plants won’t be over-purchased?
@sarahsalith form completed, I don't trust myself to package a plant correctly πŸ˜‚ I chose the other option instead.

This community is absolutely amazing and the sheer volume of love for @KikiGoldblatt is why I love this community ❀️
@tmbryant37 I think that for now, maybe a donation for a gift card to replace shelves or pots and plant things would be good. You know, until she is settled.
@kaleena we can find a way! β™₯️
@sarahsalith I said this after I saw your form. I think PayPal or cash is perfect. That way she can use it for getting on her feet in ways other than plants too. She won’t need 20 lights or pots.
@AggroResting she's going through a rough patch right now. https://greg.app/post/274YMA/
@ManyLime I agree; she is so sweet and helpful on Greg!
@FitSedum at this moment, I think having different gift cards wouldn't be a bad idea. It'll give her lots of options, as long as the company ships. (:

I'll go though the list to make sure she doesn't end up with 14 monsteras! πŸ˜‰
@jazzyjess I'm so glad you're here!!
@sarahsalith I dont think I can mail plants from Canada so I picked the other choice πŸ–€
@sarahsalith yes, that’s what I was worried about. I’ll take sone cuttings from my succulents that are doing extremely well and ship them over too. Anything to help.
@fitsedum @sarahsalith I think an Amazon Wishlist would be the best way to do this. You can turn on settings to show how # many you need of any items on the list, and then it shows how many have been bought and how many are still needed. It will also hide the sender's name, if the sender chooses and addresses can be hidden, for privacy reasons, if wanted.
Can we send cuttings? I would love to chop and mail quite a few cuttings?☺️
btw:

I just discovered that empty TP tubes are great for shipping succulent leaves! I stuffed one end of the tube with some paper towel, added the succulent leaves, then added another balled up paper towel to plug the other end of the TP tube. Put some strips of tape on both ends to secure it shut, but it can still "breathe". I wrote on the tube what's inside. Then I put them in a small box with some bubble wrap leftover from an Amazon box.

I let them dry/callus shut for 2 days beforehand.

Shipped from Arlington, VA to FL - I've never shipped clippings before this, but I'm hopeful and feeling 80% confident it should work out!!
@ShibaSunroom I agree 100%.
@AggroResting thank you so much!! πŸ’š
@ShibaSunroom good idea! Let me get with her. (:
