@RJG I don’t know how I missed you with that shirt. Well… I was trying to get my daughter into plants and talking her into joining Greg while we were there. I may go back tomorrow, though.
Hi!! This is so cool! 😎 Do we have a Los Angeles meet up group?? 🌴
@kristelle hey! I think there is a #SoCalGreg but not very active
And @Serrahhhh and @JesWHYca and Goldie!
And @caleb
Yay!!!!! So excited for you @RJG !!!! This is awesome....πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯°
Sadly not there but I LOVE YOUR SHIRT @RJG at least the #NorthTexasGregGang is gonna meet up today too!!!
That shirt is πŸ”₯
Stop it I'm jealous of you guys! I'm hoping FL or GA can get something poppin off like this.

You guys rock.
@tyson @Ehlane y'all coming still? πŸ‘€
@RJG I can be there around 11:30
@Ehlane were you planning to come tomorrow too? It's up to you most everyone has cleared out
@Ehlane I'm cooling off in my car rn πŸ˜…
@RJG I’m planning to come tomorrow, so feel free to head out! Gonna stop by anyway today
@Ehlane right now or later? I can wait a bit more!
@RJG be there in 5
@RJG we’re here! Bright purple tank and my son has a yellow shirt on
And @Ehlane
And finally my haul from day 1 of the meet. The desert rose is a Blueberry color @SirLiquorice
@RJG thank you! Too bad, this would be so great to meet up at plant swaps 😊
Very nice haul @RJG. Will the one your holding get big??
@RJG that’s going to be a good desert rose. I saw a purple one like mine at the local nursery but it was really tiny. It didn’t say the name but I’m guessing it’s the blueberry. It may have been damaged but looked cool. Not as big and perfect looking as that one you got. I like the yeti cup also. I have a different color one. The shirt is cool too. Almost looks like cacti with flowers at a distance. @caleb looks cool with those glasses. That’s cool everyone got to make it. I wish I didn’t have to drive so far. I will see if I can go tomorrow but gas and everything could be an issue. I will try. I haven’t gotten to ever go to East Austin Succulents. Pretty funny that I already have 5 plants from them magically somehow. That’s right they also do the live auction tomorrow.
@PlantEsteem they get huge!!!! Takes a long time however. But they grow into large trees eventually. Takes a looonnnnng time but they rarely need to be watered compared to most plants. Otherwise you’ll rot them. They are so awesome. His flower may look like this. And they eventually get as big as the last pic. In a gajillion years or so.
@SirLiquorice The people there are so nice. I'll figure out how to make it worth your while if you come. 😎
@SirLiquorice mine in the greenhouse have to be watered almost every day during the summer 😲😲
@kristelle you could be our champion organizer!
Woah!! @SirLiquorice that's facinating!!! And beautiful! I am so excited to see it grow with @RJG 🀩🀩😍
JEALOUS
It was muggy but it was great to meet @DefiantDndylion, @Mojo, @Ehlane, @JesWHYca, @Serrahhhh, and @caleb.

Cant wait to see who we meet tomorrow!
Lookin sharp #CentralTexasGang!! 🌡
@RJG yeah it’s pretty hot out side. But so far my desert rose outside gets shade in the afternoon so doesn’t need water very often still. The one inside really doesn’t need much. They seem to be pretty drought tolerant. But in your greenhouse you get much more heat and direct sunlight for way longer I am sure. Mine under the grow light would need more water in your greenhouse more often I’m sure
this makes me so happy wow
Dude- they can't MISS you in that shirt! 🀣 Good job standing out in a crowd!
@SirLiquorice yah greenhouse has a shade cloth but it's 115 in there in the summer
@sarahsalith wait til tomorrow
I'm crashing a #CentralTexasGang meetup soon! 🀫 🀣 Have fun y'all!!πŸ’–
@kristelle SoCal (Oceanside) gregger here! I believe @Colin is also (Temecula)! (:
@WickedValkyrie and @shaheen πŸ‘€
@RJG yeah my desert roses don’t get that much heat. My purple one gets to stay inside in the ac. So it will be 69 at night and 73 or so all day. Definitely can’t water it too much. The one outside doesn’t get that hot either
Hoping to maybe go tomorrow!! Car still not working. 😭😭
I’m not there!!! Doggy sitting weekend and tree felling weekend tooooo. Have fun!!
@kscape 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼
@kscape oh no! What happened? Could you get an Uber?
Do hops count?
Malakoff
Sad there’s only one person in Washington state on Greg that I know about! It also happens to be my best friend πŸ˜‚ hope the meetup was fun!!!
@Nightshade you should watch the leaderboard
@RJG good idea!
Says 40% chance of rain here tomorrow. I wonder how it will be in Austin. I know if it rains too hard they will close like they did recently
I was there at 12:15 with mini-me. She bought her very first succulent and a cauldron cache pot. I bought a variegated plant you can see in the box.
@WickedValkyrie πŸ‘‹πŸΎ hi @WickedValkyrie & @Colin , I just followed y’all! 😊 Pasadena here! 🌴
Here I am with the plant I adopted while there. I’m not sure what it is but I know I didn’t have one. I thought everyone had left by the time we got there and didn’t even think to check-in on the app to see if anyone was still there. πŸ₯Έ If I go tomorrow, I’ll make sure I do check in!
I’m here brother ben
@SirLiquorice it's not supposed to rain tomorrow here!

And omg @FitSedum we must have just missed each other. I left around 11:45 πŸ™ƒ see you tomorrow hopefully! What a great plant if not!
@FitSedum awesome!!! Looks like it’s probably a type of euphorbia. Very similar to my African milk bush. But yours looks cooler and leafier.
Zone 8A
@kscape I’m planning to go tomorrow! If you’re in South Austin, I’m happy to pick up!
@Ehlane unfortunately, I’m all the way out in Fort Hood! About an hour and 20 minutes from EAS 😭😭 we might be able to make it though!!
@kristelle hiiii!
@FitSedum I don’t believe that’s your daughter…she looks just like you but I think she’s really your sister because you look like you’re about 20!!πŸ˜‚
@PlantyPlanter Uber to Austin is SOOO expensive , if not I would 😭😭
@RJG that shirt is FANTASTIC!!
@TJphilobsessed lol! She’s my baby! She’s 25! We hear that a lot. πŸ˜‚
@kscape you can always contact me. I’m usually up in the Killeen area so all you need do is catch me early and see if I am. I’ll take you and bring you back since I’d be going back to Killeen anyway.
@Nightshade I’ve seen some others but I can’t think of them off the top of my head. And I don’t think they’re on that much… πŸ˜…πŸ₯²
@tango I did find some actually!
@Nightshade oh awesome! When I see you in an hour you can show me. πŸ˜‚
@tango @Nightshade πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ
@RJG πŸ˜‚
@tango I can't be helped 🫣 I want us all to have all the plant friends πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG thanks to me, @Nightshade is most definitely a #PlantFriend. 😁 I’m lucky she lives so close!!! Now we can give each other the cuttings we don’t want anymore and be excited over each other’s rejects. 🀣
@tango πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@Nightshade @tango model planty friends!
@RJG πŸ˜‚ we even get to talk to our teachers about plants!
