This is sooo true! Six 9" monsteras last night for $2 each... I didn't even think about how I was going to fit it all in my car till...I got to my car😬. 🀣🀣

Adding the #Ikea meme again🀭

Twilight Zone for sure 😭😭😭
Not mentioning any names, but I feel like some people have a blackout moment or hour when shopping for plants...

@AwesomePlants I don't even know how I can spend so long in the plant shop. It's like I ate the lotus πŸͺ· πŸ˜‚

I could spend an entire day.... I wonder if there's a place that's like... A nursery/cafe/hotel I would NEVER leave. 🀣
9" Monsteras for $2?! Where is this magical place?!
@AwesomePlants I have those same moments Like this morning.
I'm not allowed near the garden area πŸ˜‚
@RyeBread In the #Ikea as-is section. They are the neglected Monsteras, but I'm game for a $2 rehab!
Lissen... plant shopping got me in a lotta trouble yesterdayyyyyyyy! I went to get the different colored marbled terracotta pots I like and see if the nursery had anything new and pretty (they did but i resisted)and ended up needing a new radiator in my carrrrrr!
I didn't cuss them pots tho. I cussed that car lol. I said see.. I need to get a new car cuz I can't be breaking down like this. My plants didn't get watered alllllll day! And it was HOT!
I was mad i didn't break down closer to the nursery so i could at least have spent the day with the plants while my car got fixed 🀣🀣🀣
@LatiTish84 ...and this is also you probably...🀣
I was trying so hard to find a reason to go to Lowes, so I have an excuse to go by the garden center. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ @AwesomePlants
@ManyLime "why couldn't my car break down closer to the nursery" ...
@AwesomePlants @ManyLime πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@AwesomePlants welllllll technically the check engine light came on AS SOON as I pulled on to the road from the nursery. But I'm not familiar with the area and had to limp the car along until I found a mechanic.

I tell ya. Lol I can laugh now 🀣🀣🀣 but seriously, let me look at the pretty plants while you fix my car please!
@awesomeplants it's not a black out its a total eclipse of the brain. Lmao πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@AwesomePlants no way! They were $15+ at my IKEA! I was considering one of their Bird of Paradise plants (I have a small one but really want a massive one) and those were $26!!
@AwesomePlants oh yes. I’ve experienced the Plant Blackout many times.
@LatiTish84 me neither if I’m with my hubby.
@AwesomePlants πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ at the shopping at Lowes meme. Me to a T!!
@RyeBread I paid $40 for my BOP months ago that was like 5ft tall. So worth it! If you see some damaged plants on the floor, you can take it to the As-Is section and ask them for a discount.
@AwesomePlants I got mine from a plant mail subscription with two teeny tiny leaves, and now it's outgrown three different pots (and honestly probably the one it's in- it's beginning to tilt and not towards the sun!)... I would love to get it a big brother! Did you find the big one at IKEA too?
🫣 ... I'm back at Ikea for just one thing, a large vase...can't stop by plants... @LatiTish84 @TJphilobsessed @ManyLime @KrunchyWrap πŸ€¦πŸΏβ€β™€οΈ
@AwesomePlants hahahaha! That’s a good one Awesome! (can’t stop by plants…..whatEVER!) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RyeBread just don’t put them outside right now. I got two 6 footers for $100 and put them on our patio in March. The Texas heat destroyed them both while we were on vacation in Montana. 😒
@TJphilobsessed oh definitely not. I don't even want to put the succs outside- we're having a heat wave but it's also wicked humid and they would be in direct sun ALL day. So everybody sits in north facing windows with supplementary grow lights for 8-10 hours.
@TJphilobsessed Never been so relieved not to see plants discounted so I wouldn't tempt myself! 😌
@AwesomePlants 🀣🀣🀣
Thought you weren't going to the plant section.. mmmhmmmmmm
@ManyLime I didn't. I went to the as-in section where the $2 monsteras were yesterday. There were none left. Whew! 😁

I had to go to Lowes for worm castings for all this repotting and something scurried across the floor😱...I started to run...but, I need to repot tonight!
@AwesomePlants that’s funny….I also went to Lowes for worm castings on Monday…and to look at plants!! But our Lowes and HD are lame. They don’t have anything good right now.
@awesome @TJphilobsessed I got worm casting toooooo! And pots.. when my car went kaput 🀣🀣🀣 I forgot until y'all just mentioned it. It's still in the daggon car.
Yes! πŸ™Œ
@AwesomePlants trauma whenever the bug is on what you want to buy. 🀣🀣
@Ninicolite you got this at Ikea?!
@tango oh no, something scurried across the FLOOR! Pretty sure it was a mouse.🀒 If it was anything else, I would have been out of there, but I NEEDED to repot that night lol. Grabbed 2 bags of worm castings and ran, while screaming lol
@AwesomePlants oh my goodness. πŸ₯ΈπŸ that’s scary. πŸ˜…
@Ninicolite she is a beauty!
@AwesomePlants she was! Unfortunately, she came with scale.. but eventually it’ll be worth it 🀣
