Lol I’m overwhelmed when it says more than 5 to water ! πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« I still haven’t gotten all my plant children entered into the app and I have my outside gardens as well so 5 to water translates into 15 πŸ˜‚
Cancel all appointments lol πŸ˜† I wish I could help πŸ’š I only have a little over 50 lol so haven’t experienced that bittersweet moment… to dread watering day οΏΌbut yet feel very proud of so many beautiful plants πŸ’šβœ¨πŸ‘πŸΌ You got this Sarah!πŸ‘πŸΌ
O my. How long does it take you to go thru 166 plants?
I thought it was a lot when I woke up to 16.πŸ˜…
I thought my 26 this morning was a lot 🀣 @sarahsalith Goals! 😜
@AguaViviente I had 65 yesterday, but it was Saturday and the kids were all over the place. It was a good day. The plants aren't complaining. (: I love watering my plants. I dread going out of town! πŸ˜‰
@Sleepysunday I do it here and there throughout the day. I've never timed myself. Maybe less than an hour if I do it start to finish without repotting or getting sidetracked by the social media of Greg.
It might take longer if the app is buggy because I make it crash. πŸ˜‰
@HoyaAddict I figured I wouldn't overwater plants ... if I had a lot to water! 🀣

How's your pool/pond coming along?
@sarahsalith What a smart idea πŸ˜‚ that’s how my outdoor plants survive, I’m usually too lazy to do them πŸ˜… I haven’t got any plants for the pond yet, all my money is going to the dentist soon 🫣 I will pick up plants in spring I think, there will be a bigger variety on sale. Being winter there isn’t many plants being sold 😫
Kinda scary huh? I’m up to 226β€¦πŸ˜±
@sarahsalith I haven't quite gotten caught up with you....but I have 94 today! I guess I know what I'm doing after work today...lol
One of the best notifications to see in the morning 😁
Jeez what a day you had @sarahsalith. Rather you than me πŸ˜‚ 😘 How long did it take you to water 94 plants?
Lol cancel all your plans for the day 🀣
WOW that would overwhelm me @sarahsalith I had 25 on Thursday, only 15 today, but it takes me hours each plant gets thoroughly inspected and checked to see if it needs watered or snoozed. That and outside plants and distractions like grabbing my camera to capture pics of a Pileated woodpecker enjoying suet on my deck railing, or Orioles enjoying grape jelly.. Oh back to plants πŸŒΏπŸŒΏπŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜‚
Wow! Where do you start? Lol πŸ˜†
@Yeeha234 oh myyy!!! I wouldnt be able to hold down my real job. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You GROW girl!!!!
@Yeeha234 It makes me smile. 😁 I have not once though "uh! I have to water plants".

However, I often wish that doing the dishes and sweeping and organizing and cleaning brought me as much joy as watering my plants.
@OKIEgrnthmb I love that my plants will (mostly) wait patiently for me. πŸ˜‰ At least they don't complain loudly - how awful would THAT be if plants made noise?!?!
@KikiGoldblatt HAHAH! I need to time myself. I guess I need to remember to hit the stopwatch feature on my phone. ☺️ I hope you have a beautiful day!
@awwtmn I definitely agree with you- it a great notification to see. It beats the news that makes me want to roll my eyes!

I love this app and I love caring for my plants = they go together well. (:
@Sassylimey Orioles and JELLY? That I'd love to see. ☺️

You're better than I am; I'm a laid back plant person. I check the soil, water or snooze, maybe take a tracking picture, rotate while I glance for bugs, and move on.

The worst is when my phone has a low battery or the app is trouble keeping up with my plants so I go sit down on the balcony or in my plant room and charge my phone ... while scrolling through Greg! 🀣 THAT'S when I start to log all the time on Greg.
@Pegster I start at the beginning. 😁 Usually I'll stand in one room or area and just scroll until I've watered everything there, then I'll move to another area and water there.

I can't go straight through the list- that's a LOT of walking!

... I guess it would be better for my health. πŸ€”
@sarahsalith I hope you have a beautiful day as well. Hugs πŸ€—
@sarahsalith That’s the way I watered my daughter’s plants. Room by room. Hers were all over the house, even upstairs. My plants are mostly in one area.
@sarahsalith plants making noises......(WARNING: nerd referenceπŸ€“πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ) that makes me think of the mandrakes on Harry Potter!!! That would not be pleasant!!πŸ™‰
@sarahsalith here's a couple of shots of Orioles enjoying jelly. Other birds that live the grape jelly are Red-bellied woodpeckers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, House Finches, Catbirds, they all come to my feeders 🐦πŸ₯°πŸ¦
Holy S--- I don't know how you do it @sarahsalith I'm exhausted just thinking about the task that lies ahead of you.
@OKIEgrnthmb I can HEAR this if I forget to water my Money Tree! 🀣🀣 It'll SCREAM!!! until I water it!!
@Sassylimey that's so cool that they come in for jelly! ☺️

It reminds me of my Grandfather- he'd collect peanuts from whatever had peanuts in it and save them for the squirrels in his yard. He consistently fed the squirrels peanuts for over 30 yearsοΏΌ. β™₯️
@Stall54Jo It's not "work" if you enjoy it. ☺️ Caring for my plants grounds me and allows me to refocus.
Hence the Hash Tag playing with plants @sarahsalith I so agree, I love it as well.
@sarahsalith 😊😊 Those things will still be there when I get done β€˜planting’ with the girls. We have had five days of rain and no one outside seems to mind. I am going to do some beheading today @TJphilobsessed I’m self-employed πŸ˜‚ That being said business has slacked off for some reasonβ€¦πŸ€¨
🀣 I have 61! 🫣
@AwesomePlants yes, but as long as @jcPlantProper keeps tempting -- I mean SHOWING us her gorgeous plants, you too will have 166 to water one day!οΏΌοΏΌ πŸ˜‰
@sarahsalith haha!! Glad to help
You win.
I’m up to 80… but some are in the same Greg plant, so it’s really only about 65.
