Went into #Ikea for another plant quarantine cart and also came out with 6 #Monstera for...

๐Ÿšจโœจ #DealAlert โœจ๐Ÿšจ

Monsteras for $1.99 ...yup less than $2 folks!

Make sure you check As-Is section for plant markdowns at Ikea!

Leaves are in bad shape so they'll get pruned, but it probably just needs some water and light and I'll see new growth soon.

*Note...while I am a #crazyplantlady , these are ALL gifts once I rehab for a month or so! Can't take up precious #ImInLoveWithAPhilo space*

This post and this thread are amazing. My OG plant is from IKEA and I improperly cared for her for years but sheโ€™s still going strong!

If only I was closer to the Ikea. It's probably best for my wallet that I'm not ๐Ÿ˜‚
WHATWHATWHATWHATWHATWHATWHATWHAT $2?!!?!?! How big??
@AwesomePlants only you could get 5 monsteras for $1.99 each!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚
@ABCD 9" pots my friend!!
@tmbryant37 Want me to snag you one tomorrow for when we meetup the end of this month?
@TJphilobsessed correction...6 for $1.99 each ๐Ÿคญ with how they're neglecting the monsteras on the floor, more will end up in as is๐Ÿ™„
@AwesomePlants oopsโ€ฆread it wrong. Iโ€™m tired from a long day of work ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™ƒ
Forgot to add photo. They are 9" pot Monsteras for $2. @ABCD @tmbryant37 @TJphilobsessed @EagerPhlox #DMVGregGang #DealAlert
@AwesomePlants poor babies. Awesome to the rescue! They donโ€™t know how lucky they are.
@AwesomePlants GIRL OMGGGG ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
@ABCD want me to save one for you? Check with your folks to see if they're coming up or near Fredericksburg within next month and I can meet y'all somewhere.
@kscape It's moments like these that I wish my expressions were captured on video. I had to read it several times to make sure it actually said $1.99.
@AwesomePlants when Greg adds video, PLEASE RECORD YOUR HAULS AND STUFF IM BEGGING. Iโ€™ll be ur first follower and fan ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Ok that IKEA commercial with the lady yelling 'Start the car!' Just ran thru my head but she's carrying an arm load of monstera ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Forgive me. Long day and in half delirious from exhaustion.
Awesome haul..Awesome..๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Yupppp.. I'm gone. Giggles have commenced ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฑ
Bed.
I don't have room for any big plants, lol, or else I'd say yes
I work literally less than 10 minutes away from one. Guess the office will be getting new plants this week.
@ManyLime OMG! I love that commercial! That was me the first time I saw the 9" Philodendron Squamiferum for $20...๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Never knew how badly I needed a monstera until you tell me theyโ€™re $2 at IKEA. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
Whoa!! Thatโ€™s a steal!
Well didnโ€™t plan on going to an ikea anytime soon but might have to work it into my plans now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคช Thatโ€™s freaking awesome though! Iโ€™m sad for the plants for the neglect but happy they WERE SAVED! ๐Ÿฅฐ
Who is in the getaway car?!

Why do I think you'd be the driver @KrunchyWrap ?
@ManyLime @TJphilobsessed @sarahsalith @OKIEgrnthmb @melodey @kscape
@LeighannM They told me, if you see some in bad shape on the floor, you can take them to As-Is and ask for a markdown. Just in case there are none in your as-is.
@AwesomePlants ๐Ÿคฃ
@AwesomePlants Thank you so much for letting me know this!!! Gonna forsure have to check it out soon then!
@AwesomePlants Holy cow, thatโ€™s a regular Monstera mobil ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคช
I don't have an ikea anywhere near me ๐Ÿ˜’ lame
@AwesomePlants because I put off the vibes of get-away driver... get-away from the house and get to them there plant babies!
@AwesomePlants HOLY PLANT HAUL!!!
The closest IKEA for me is 2 hours away๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’
@AwesomePlants I could TOTALLY see @KrunchyWrap or @LatiTish84 yelling 'girl hurry UP!' and already rolling the car and you having to run to get in ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
@ManyLime gotta run and lunge to get in but ya gotta tuck and roll to get out baby! Got plants to rescue, so we have tires to squeal if we wanna catch those deals
Yeee boiii
We need a Greg show! You see @AwesomePlants put up a #dealalert and you see other ppl see it and run off from whenever they are to check it out. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ We can see the Thursday action of #PlantProper. We can see ppl checking for fresh leaves for Friday. We can see @kscape planning experiments. We can see the Greg Team behind the scenes. We can show ppl our setups in different locations and how we make it work.
I think we can get an audience. Somebody call TLC!! @ManyLime @KrunchyWrap @sarahsalith @jcPlantProper @OKIEgrnthmb @fabiana @TJphilobsessed @ABCD @RJG
@AwesomePlants thatโ€™s amazing. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ
@LatiTish84 we can't forget @ForFoxSake with his stuff! That stuff is real deal fascinating!
@KrunchyWrap ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Yesssss!! @ForFoxSake and the SOURCERY!! @ManyLime
Someone pitch it to a network... We NEED a #crazyplantlady show! ๐Ÿคฃ

See this is why you'd be on my getaway team @KrunchyWrap ...ain't stopping, better run and get in! Haha

Can you imagine all of us together? We'd have abs of steel from all the laughing @LatiTish84 ๐Ÿคช
Yes we will!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ @AwesomePlants
@LatiTish84 I can see it! ๐Ÿ˜‚
@tmbryant37 I don't have room either๐Ÿคฃ I don't know where I'm going to rehab these at๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™€๏ธ
@AwesomePlants I've been putting things in my balcony but the only spot left is the one I sit in ๐Ÿ˜‚
If you all start a show itโ€™s going to be a bunch of crazy plant ladies and me on the outside looking in. Then, a record scratches when I enter the room, like, who invited this guy?
All like: โ€œhave you tried #MagicFoxPaste or growing your plant upside down to promote new growth?โ€
@AwesomePlants ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I hope you didn't drive a friend to the store - clearly they'd be walking home! ๐Ÿคฃ
@AwesomePlants I have an Excursion! It holds nine people or 47 Monstera!!
@KrunchyWrap @LatiTish84 @ManyLime @fabiana @tmbryant37 @ForFoxSake ๐Ÿคฃ
@sarahsalith acceptable units of measurement
@sarahsalith Haha! I actually offered to give someone a drive...thank goodness they didn't need to go. That would have been awkward...um, can I come back for you, gotta take plants home first๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
@ForFoxSake haha #crazyplantlady show with #CrazyPlantDad including you with your Bill Nye-ish experiments and @RJG with adventures in the #RJGsYard jungle! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
So Iโ€™m basically like Ryan seacrest for plants?
Omg we could do a Gillian's Island remake but instead of a three hour tour we were going to get rare plants. Now we live among the plants. @ForFoxSake will have to replicate the paste on the island.
@RJG Iโ€™m gonna need a paper clip some bat shit a coconut grown on the north shore and the blood of 10,000 aphids.
@ForFoxSake Bill Nye-ish and @RJG Irwin-ish ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
@ForFoxSake No! Bill Nye! You'll have your own science segment! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿงช๐Ÿงซ๐Ÿ”ฌ
Have you ever tasted the monstera fruit @AwesomePlants ? Itโ€™s not called deliciosa by coincidence
@ForFoxSake Did not know it produced fruit. Very cool
@AwesomePlants it tastes like pineapple mixed with banana with a custard texture. So good! I want to make some Monstera Nut Bread one day
@sarahsalith ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
@AwesomePlants they could ride in the trunk.. roof rack.. sumthin.. hold a plant, make yourself useful ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Oh gosh a Survivor type show and see who has the last plant standing. Naw.. I would be out FAST lollll
@ForFoxSake wait.. they produce edible fruit?!?? ๐Ÿคฏ
@ManyLime yes indeed! And as the name suggests, itโ€™s delicious!
@ManyLime there's a site online that you can pre-order Monstera fruit ... it ain't cheap!!
Omggg which one did you go to? The one near Baltimore?
@AwesomePlants which IKEA do you shop? Laurel? Off 495? Or in one of the Va stores?
@Teapott73 the Woodbridge Ikea. Sorry @MeganO , just saw your reply. These are definitely rehabs., but I'm finally starting see new growth. I'll post photos when I get back. I got them to rehab and give away, but I may be moving soon so if y'all want one, let me know for when we have our DMV meet up! ๐Ÿ˜‰
