Update: they're also having a baller sale rn. πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

Hey #GregGang,

First, excellent #FreshLeafFriday today! The mega-thread just keeps growing!! Don’t miss out on all the #NewGrowth the #GregCommunity has to offer from the last week. Check the hashtag out and join the community at the top.

Second, now that that business is out of the way I have a huge shoutout to @jcPlantProper and http://www.plantproper.com!!! Last week I jokingly told Janai that she owed me a welcome gift for finally making on #TeamGreg and well today a surprise package showed up from none other than Plant Proper with plants HAND SELECTED by Janai herself!!!

As someone who has ordered….just a few (everyone go with it) plants online… I have to say that if you see a plant on Plant Proper’s website that you like, and you’re perhaps worried about shipping, that you have absolutely nothing to worry about! Plant Proper sent 3 plants individually wrapped and they arrived without damage.

You may then think to yourself, β€œSure RJG they packed them well, but were the plants healthy and in good shape?” and as you can see in my pictures the answer is again unequivocally yes!

Seriously, please give these guys a look anytime you want to treat yourself to something a little exotic and fun!!

Janai thank you so much and please extend my greatest thanks to your whole team. I have nothing but positive things to say about your plants, packaging, and friendship!!

Plant Proper is #RJGApproved!! πŸͺ΄

Not you outdoing yourself in a long post HAHA i love it. It’s a fact that when I send people plants, I hold my breath until they get them. I can finally breath and I am O SO HAPPY UPS didn’t mess up the box πŸ˜‚ when that tiny dancer recovers from being in a box, just wait. I was so happy to send it to you. And the Apoballis with that dramatic purple leaf (and not a Calathea)
@jcPlantProper couldn't be me. that's definitely not how I got in this position in the first place......πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ seriously thank you so much! I will speak the good word about plant proper for sure
now I gotta do my second favorite thing to plant shopping! POT SHOPPING !!!
@jcPlantProper you could have told us @Kiersten's was different and then you wouldn't have had to wait πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG I thought I said it πŸ˜‚ well maybe not but yeah I wouldn’t send you guys the same plant. Gotta get the full affect πŸ˜… and yeah we have terra cotta pots but that’s it
@jcPlantProper oh no I'll find some local. Sarah doesn't love terracotta inside πŸ˜‚
Ditto regarding Plant Proper and ESPECIALLY @jcPlantProper (I hope your bosses are recognizing AND rewarding your hardwork and sales ...if not, your GregFam needs to start writing so they know most of us had never heard of Plant Proper until you and now we are faithful customers!) They do a fantastic job ensuring your plants arrive safely and they are healthy! I see now I just need to add Plant Proper into my monthly budget so I can shop guilt free Thursdays at 4pm EDT!
@AwesomePlants haha! Nah. I keep it to myself. I just know we have some of the best plants I’ve seen and I have a hand in growing and caring for them. I wanna make sure they go to good homes 🏑 and not to mention the steal prices and constant sales
I LOVED the care @jcPlantProper put into picking out my plant and packaging it!! I was speechless when I saw the plant she picked for me - she even made a post here before she sent the plant and THEY SEND UPS!! (I'm convinced that the USPS hates plants.)

I loved the purchase from Plant Proper and the personal service from Janai!

Drew, you're gonna enjoy that tiny dancer- it gets big! I'm off to repot mine real quick.
@RJG all of these wouldn’t mind staying slightly damp and in the next few weeks, wouldn’t mind a larger pot but they’ll be okay in the ones they have too. Rootbound doesn’t affect them negatively
@jcPlantProper now I'm picturing you doing recon missions to homes of bad plant parents πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@jcPlantProper oh nice yah I was gonna ask how tight they are when y'all ship. but they're good for a while at that size?
@sarahsalith you have tiny dancer? I’m going to have to check your oasis and see! Given the perfect amount of light, the bottom area can get really thick without getting tooooo tall. And this Alocasia unlike most has more than 3 leaves πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@jcPlantProper hey my poly has 4 rn tyvm
@RJG YES. let me see the plant i sent to to make sure you’re not killing it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜– the pep diamond doesn’t have a crazy root system so it’ll be happy trailing in that pot. The tiny dancer probably has a little longer in that pot when it comes to the roots But also will be fine too for even longer cause it doesn’t mind being root bound. We actually just up potted all the 4” to 6” cause they’re at the point where they look thick and good in bigger pots. They get HUGE if you let them. And the Apoballis is the same as the tiny dancer. What a fun plant
@RJG and I bet the bottom one is ready to leave this earth πŸ˜…
@jcPlantProper I have a not-so-tiny dancer. (: It's dark and the mosquitoes are out, but it is repotted!
@jcPlantProper I mean it's kinda cheating cause they just started and it's 2 separate plants but
@jcPlantProper this is the best shape I had it in last October
@sarahsalith oh! She’s a cutie πŸ₯°
Dang, Janai- now it makes me want to hop back online and check out your site again. I'm sure there's something I don't have.

I had everything on The Sill (or I knew that I didn't want to deal with it again). I gave my gift card to my son's girlfriend and she loved going shopping! οΏΌI'll need to get pictures from her.
@RJG no that’s actually really good for a Polly!
@sarahsalith lol I was in the same boat I got their fertilizers and some super sharp fancy hand shears
@jcPlantProper thanks Janai! Lets see what I can do this year when I don't overwater it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (yes humble brag I got 6 leaves on a Polly while overwatering 😬)
Oooh I'm gonna have to check them out!
@sarahsalith πŸ˜… ooooo hahaha that’s hilarious. We have a few unique things. But our stuff is just WAY cheaper and always fuller πŸ₯² if you need something specific I can point you in the right direction. We have a good sale rn and then may have more in a few weeks
@BehattedLlama you can ask @jcPlantProper all about it. She's here rn!
@BehattedLlama yes! Let me know if you’re looking for anything specific I can help you out. We have some pretty awesome things
@jcPlantProper Brad is a dear pre-Greg friend. so make sure we take extra special care of him. None of those plants you would send to @sarahsalith only the really good ones 🌚🫣πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰
Poor Brad, he knows you in real life?

🀣 Kidding. I like watching @BehattedLlama's props! #PropsToLlama (:
@sarahsalith KNOWS ME? WEVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED TOGETHER
@KikiGoldblatt was this supposed to be on FreshLeafFriday?
@RJG I know it’s Friday for me lol πŸ˜‚ I have lost track of time since I retired last year. My days get mixed up. I just looked at the calendar and realized it was Saturday.
@KikiGoldblatt this just isn't the FreshLeafFriday post πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it's the one where I thanked @jcPlantProper for my plants πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG @jcPlantProper absolutely gorgeous πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸŒ±
New plant website I didn’t know about ????
@ABCD AND THERES A SALE?

@RJG I deleted my post πŸ˜‚
@ABCD yessssss plantproper.com
🚨 that Peperomia diamond might need to be purchased
@jcPlantProper I’m going to a plant sale right now, but if I have money left I’ll have to find something online πŸ˜† rip my wallet and bank account. I’m worried I may not have enough space if I keep up my shopping sprees! πŸ˜‚ 😁
@jcPlantProper shipping costs?
@ABCD it’s super cute
@ABCD for your location absolutely Amazing. Ground is cheaper for closer states. We’re in Florida

@JustPlainDee jk I see it. The philodendron sp has this cool copper color on some of the leaves. AND they love to climb. You’ll love it
@jcPlantProper I ordered a Philodendron Congo Millions and your Philodendron SP. πŸ™‚
Well, I looooove Philodendrons and Epipremnums @jcPlantProper so I'm excited to add these two(2) to my collection.

Planning to place the Millions next to my Green Congo and compare their growth...... healthy competition, you know? LOL
@JustPlainDee yessss. They’re super compact. What do your green Congo look like ?
Very nice! I've been playing with the idea of getting plants by mail. I am torn because I just love going to nurseries and such and just walking and looking. Lol
@TopAnahaw why not both
@JustPlainDee cuute!
I told myself I needed to chill on purchasing house plants as we are currently caring for 113 house plants….buuuuuttttt…looks like the chill won’t last long πŸ˜‚
@Buddingbotanist @jcPlantProper is great at warming up house plant chill downs
@Buddingbotanist it’s spring time! What better time than now hehe
Yo @jcPlantProper the Apoballis moves A l o t

@RJG so thru the day it moves? Or like only towards the sun?
I haven't watched close enough and keep moving it so πŸ˜‚ @jcPlantProper
@RJG it’s a new plant for us to grow and watch grow. There’s not much about it so I love learning more. Waiting to bring one home myself lolll
smh @jcPlantProper you should have taken a cutting before sending πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG 🀣 nah I’m waiting till the sale is over to see what is left then I’ll spend my check πŸ˜…
