How'd all y'all's day go? Did anyone get any new plants?

I went shopping today...They didn't have much at the Ace Hardware where I'm at... It was already picked through, and Nantonio's Harmony Garden Nursery is closed till Friday.

But I got a..... #hoyakhronianasupersilver
And a #birdsnestfern

Excited for my first #hoya! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Yass! Love them! #OnTuesWeBuyGreen
@LatiTish84 thank you! I'm about to be obsessed with Hoya's ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Got the bird nest fern for a $1! Score!
Oh that's a SCORE!! @melodey
Maybeeeee lol I got a 4$ money tree and a 14$ neon pothos
You are about to be obsessed with Hoyas! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚
@Mrgncrch heck yes! That's a score! I almost got a N' Joy today but passed it up for the Hoya. ๐Ÿฅฐ
@babyfiretiger13 I feel it already. I'm already searching for my next "to-buy" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
I passed up a hoya for a neon ๐Ÿคฃ
@melodey they are just so cute and look so easy going! Good luck ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ
๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ See you "strolled" past the nursery!
That hoya is gorg!

I attempted to go plant shopping but only got pots. Very pretty pots. I'm not a fancy pot person. I like terracotta and I've found these pretty white and like cocoa brown pots that I'm loving. I did find a mican that's like one of the only plants on my wish list but it was huge.. is it possible for a plant to just be too big? It was $25 and it was a big girl. I prefer my plants small and watch them grow big ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
I'll venture out again tomorrow in search for a smaller mican. But my #plantproper order is on the way ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ
@ManyLime

$25 for a giant Micans is a steal! If it was me I'd have snapped her up in a heartbeat, lol
@ManyLime If it's still there, you could do the bobby pin method to make it fuller so it's not hanging as much. Micans are my fav, I have two and I'm propagating one.
@AwesomePlants I don't even think that would work lol. It was like a bush. Which I stood there thinking well it's a great price for soooooo much plant, but it was just too much plant for me lol
@tmbryant37 I was thinking that! But it was so big I think I was in a bit of shock lol. I just kept circling it like it was an oddity ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
I might end up going back for it but I just keep thinking 'where the heck am I gonna put all these plants come winter??๐Ÿ˜ฌ'
@ManyLime ๐Ÿ˜‚ You hang them from the ceiling and use them as curtains in the windows ๐Ÿ˜†

I'm gonna be in the same predicament myself but that's a future me problem ๐Ÿคฃ
@ManyLime I know what you mean by a plant being too big already. I have a couple big plants I bought like my PPP and my Deliciosa. I love them so it was worth it.

I say... Go back and see if it's still there tomorrow ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜œ
@tmbryant37 lol
@melodey I probably will. I was freaked out by it today, I'll be prepared tomorrow. And watch I'll be like 'oh she's just a lil baaaaaby ๐Ÿ˜ฎ' ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
@ManyLime I don't understand these words "too much" as it relates to philodendrons ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ.
NEVER too much of a #Philodendron ๐Ÿคญ
#PhiloAddict #ImInLoveWithAPhilo
@AwesomePlants lollll
Come to think of it I actually have a decent amount of Philodendrons! I need to go look and see exactly how many honestly.
I had a micans in at least 4 carts during these July 4th sales but either they wanted way too much in shipping or way too much for just a tiny pot. So I'm still hunting.
Got an Alocasia Polly + Black Velvet today ๐Ÿชด. & youโ€™re gunna โค๏ธ that Hoya ๐Ÿ˜ญ.
@ManyLime I've ordered from this shop before and like them.

Here is their 6" Micans: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1039460851/philodendron-micans-in-6hb
I did!!!! I got a PPP (my first #philo) and a String of Hearts! I will be bringing them home next week. Any tips welcome!!!!
@tmbryant37 I'm saving them but I swear the pot I saw today was so much fuller.
That's it I better go back ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I didn't know how good I had it!
Oooh! @KrunchyWrap seeee @tmbryant37 got me on etsy and reminded me of a great buyer I used in the past and look what I found!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/1185143516/peperomia-rubella-red-log-4-inch-pot
@ManyLime girl thank you for thinking about meeeeโ™ฅ๏ธŽ I actually just found some from "hirts garden " I believe? Really hoping this works out to be some really good ones, if not then I'm so going on etsy. Crazy I didn't think to check on there for them. Lol I've gotten a lots of plants off etsy.
Oh but I do believe believe of the peperomias I had, that had to be cut are possibly starting to get roots! I have some in water and some in peatmoss with some perlite. I say possible because I can't tell lol
@ManyLime I wanna see your micans when you get them ๐Ÿฅบ
@KrunchyWrap that Peperomia is so pretty! *Adds to wishlist*
@hurricanem I wanna see!!! I am obsessed with PPPs.
They do love a chunky soil mix, bright indirect light and humidity levels between 50%-80%. If you put it on a moss pole it will be so happy and will produce decent sized foliage.

Philodendrons are a fairly easy plant to care for, I'm excited for you!
Thanks @melodey - I will def post pics when I bring her home. Sheโ€™s pretty tiny right now - would I add a moss pole when time comes to repot? I am going to bring her to my office with a grow bulb!!
@hurricanem I'm not sure how big it is... But the earlier you start training it to climb a pole the better for the plant to be able to grow straight and upright.
@melodey I know right? I'm kicking myself in the tookus for not thinking about checking etsy for those because those are soooo healthy and full and I want those ones but too late to cancel other order now. Fingers crossed hirts garden send some quality stuff though
@melodey love love love them both.
