Anybody else feel overwhelmed my how many plants you have but you keep buying more or is that just me? I couldn't resist. I have never seen this plant before. She is so different looking. #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #newplants
I keep buying more and more. My hubby says I have additiction and need to go to plany anonymous.
I've bought new furniture to accommodate my plants 3 times now. The addiction is real πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
This is me to a T. I almost posted the exact same thing the other day. Some days I love all my plants and the care they take and I can’t stop buying more. Then other days I feel completely overwhelmed lol. I can’t win πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
@ShadesofGreen Was up half the night on Amazon trying to figure out which large plant stand I need to buy…
@DiverseGerbera @ShadesofGreen I literally have no more room. I avoid Lowes like the plague.
@DiverseGerbera I’ve taken to sneaking them into the house. I clearly have a problem!
@planthoe40 I find excuses to GO to Lowes "just to look at the plants" and then find myself rushing home to hide them before my husband gets home πŸ˜…
I was feeling my that some days 50 plants ago but I love my plants. And of course, there's always room for more πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
@MelissaF i recently bought this one It's great. πŸ˜…
IT’s never ending, I stress about how many I have but still want more πŸ˜‚ I have been gifting a lot of plants away to friends, plants that don’t bring me joy or duplicates, this has definitely made me feel a bit better. I have also not bought myself a plant this year! Let’s see how long I can go for πŸ˜…
My family jokes with me about my addiction… I’ve ordered a plant stand and am rearranging my house. But it isn’t a harmful addiction at least πŸ˜‚ We should have a Plant Anonymous group. Hello my name is Cheri, and I have a plant problem. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚
@ShadesofGreen before I got into plants I was into fitness and I have about $2,000 worth of equipment that now I want to get rid of but hubby won't let me bc one day I might use it.
@planthoe40 but if you sell it, you have more money for plants AND more space for plants. Make him see this is life changing πŸ˜…
@ShadesofGreen that's what he doesn't want. I want a greenhouse. He doesn't want me to be obese with diabetes.
Oh absolutely! I think it’s the joy of having a new plant in your care but obviously we don’t really think the care and time we really put into them! It’s all good though! πŸ’š I’ve been selling a few of my plants slowly so others can also enjoy the plant hobby, #PlantingOnABudget, but keeping my favorites πŸ™ŒπŸ½
lol, i feel this so much πŸ’š
All of you are so funny, however, I know exactly how you feel and have the same behaviors.
On the days that I can’t face the β€œwater list” I remind myself that it’s good to leave them a little thirsty between waters.
@ShadesofGreen I was looking at that one! And this one if I can get it to link. At this rate I’ll need both
I often feel overwhelmed by my plants but I'm always propagating... So, not exactly the same thing, but pretty close! Lol But also, that plant is gorgeous!
@planthoe40 you absolutely won't be. Think of all the bending, lifting, stretching that comes with new furniture, potting, lugging soil around (or switch to Pon, which is heavy as hell). At home gym πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜…
I wouldn’t hide my plants from my husband because that feels wrong to me in all seriousness. But I do feel bad that I spend money on something that’s just for ME instead of on bills or family expenses because money is tight sometimes. But this gets more into my value and self esteem than anything else. πŸŒ±β˜€οΈβ€οΈ
Yes!!! Totally addicted. I probably would have bought that one also.
@RealSimpleMama In actuality, I've only hidden one, and it was because of what I paid for it πŸ˜… but my plants come from "my" money, not his. He will only get upset at my plants or my distilled water runs when and IF I look him in the face and tell him I can't pay the bills. We have shared accounts for the house, pets, and miscellaneous bills to keep them all running, but any other money not for that is ours to do with what we please. I just get pleased by plants. He gets pleased by video games πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ we also have a weird work/life balance due to me working in a timezone we don't live in, and live in darkness for 6 months put of the year so when I get to feeling sad, he'll say "hey, why don't you go drive around town and look for a new plant after work?" Because he knows my plants and desire to have them and care for them serves multiple purposes for me ❣️ He even names half of them for me πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…
I'm not overwhelmed, I suffer from not enough space or a full wall of south facing windows! Tho I look every time I'm at the store.
I felt this post and all the comments. When I hit 600 I said ok I’m going on a plant break and then what did I do…I went and bought a couple πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€£ oh well, we’re plant addicts, at least it’s a positive addiction to have imoπŸ₯° it helps our mental health and it is a great way to move around and be active. (I will second that Pon is freakin heavy!πŸ˜‚) my name is Jess, and I have a plant problem, but I’m okay with itπŸ’š
@Propa I'm Christa and I have a plant addiction πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ (also totally unashamed lol) just got a new one when I ran to the store for granola bars. Whoops.
@ShadesofGreen πŸ˜‚ it’s funny when we go grocery shopping and they just jump into the cart isn’t it😏
@Propa absolutely. It was just begging me to go home with me and who am I to say no? πŸ˜… (especially because she was neglected and needed some TLC!) Some people can't refuse puppy eyes, I can't refuse green leaves πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
