#TechTeamTuesday 8/30
πŸ‘‹ Good Evening #GregGang!

In the next few weeks, #GregTeam will be finishing up some #GregMagic and we are super excited to share it with y’all.

🏘️ After we launch this amazing new feature, we’re planning to focus on some exciting updates for the community that will make growing together even more fun. Please let us know what features you’d love to see next in the Greg Community (bonus points if you’re artistically inclined and wanna draw us a picture πŸ˜‰)

πŸ‘πŸ» Next, check out the suggestions and like your favorites.

πŸ‘€ Some Posts that caught our eye this week:

🐻 @LatiTish84 had the community laughing with her #PlantProper meme.

🎁 We love the #PlantGifts we see flying around the Community.

1️⃣ @hoyahead had @sarahsalith super pumped to get a string of needles!

2️⃣ @ManyLime got @kscape a very cool philodendron!

An universal search is definetly needed. Weird comparison, but roblox out of all things has what i'm imagining. When you type something in the search bar, you would get prompts to search in: community, plants, hashtags etc.
@zay @xou @hoyahead πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
Aw love this! What a wholesome lil community πŸ₯° Future Greg idea: built-in way to trade plants?! 🌿🀞
@hoyahead how would it work without talk about another app πŸ‘€πŸŒšπŸ˜‚
Anxious to hear the #GregMagic. πŸ‘
A built in feature for a wishlist plant tab in our oasis? Kind of like the followers? Have a page where we can edit a list and mark when we’ve gotten plants or whatever. I had a margarita so I’m a lil loopy πŸ’€πŸ’€, but like just a checklist for wishlist plants? @RJG
@ManyLime we’re on a #TechTeamTuesday post!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’–πŸ’– loved @LatiTish84’s meme, I was laughing hard af and @hoyahead & @sarahsalith EXCHANGE WAS SO WHOLESOME πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
@RJG hey what other app? Greg is the only app I have on my phone what are you talking about πŸ˜‚ Just like Amazon changed the digital marketplace, Greg could totally change the virtual plant community space β€” channeling my inner wishful thinking today πŸ˜…
@kscape @RJG PLEASE DO THIS I HAVE A FOLDER IN MY PHOTOS OF WISHLIST PLANTS OF SCREENSHOTS FROM PPLS MOMENTS AND I DONT KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN DO THIS 😭 A little button on moments to add to wishlist plants would be AMAZING! And there could be a little plant with a heart/heart eyes for the icon on people oasis that they can choose to have private or not!
@hoyahead I think a Greg Trades would be cool as a feature. It could be set up kind of like eBay where people can place β€œbids” on a plant (plants they offer to trade for somebody’s plant listing) and there could be a premium where you can pay to not have to pay for shipping where Greg can send out stamps for people who plan of using it a lot
@hoyahead I think also having to have your acc for a certain amount of time or something like that would be good, there could also be a new thing on the leader board for trades and maybe even a badge awarded to β€œtrusted traders”
@hoyahead πŸ•΅πŸ»πŸ•΅πŸ»πŸ•΅πŸ»
@RJG the icon for the trade feature could be a loop πŸ” with a plant in the middle!
@PlantyPlanter These are great!! I love the idea of a Greg Plant Market!! Where we can sell/ship our plants that people see in our oasis if they are interested in purchasing!
@kscape ya! There can be a little indication on the plants in our oasis that we are trading!
@RJG @hoyahead I think having a separate app would make it less appealing and kind of boring if it was just that, but I guess I COULD see an app for it but it would make more sense if it was more integrated into the features already in Greg! Because it would work better with what Greg already has
@PlantyPlanter the icon is a good idea. I've often thought of redoing my plant card picture to show the plant, the name, and an icon that shows I'm willing to trade a specific plant.

Like my Monstera Siltepecana and Dubia- I could cut those up because they grow so fast!
@sarahsalith YES! Like a little white sprout icon with a green background for props and pups for trades on peoples oasis!
@PlantyPlanter @sarahsalith THESE ARE AMAZING I LOVE THIS. I redid a few of my plant cards by adding green check marks on some plants I was willing to trade, but thought it looked dumb and people wouldn’t look so I changed them back Lmao
@kscape @PlantyPlanter yooo guys these are such good ideas for plant trading, I love the oasis icon suggestion!
I wish there were an easier way to scroll through peoples oasis, mine I click on a plant and then I go back and it glitches to the top and some people on here have a lot of plants and it makes finding some hard
@Mrgncrch yesss, wish they could make the accessibility of viewing peoples’ plants easier!
@kscape I loveeee the idea of a plant market on here also!!
I also feel like adding optional folders to peoples oasis so they can organize would be nice! I’d love to group my snekes, my syngoniums, my pothos and etc all together and some could organize different!
@kscape @Mrgncrch focus this is community. We oasis a month ago πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸŒš
🀣🫣 oops…. What about searching hashtags? Is that in the future lol 😊
@RJG community you say? Make adding pics to comments after posting them available to HELP the COMMUNITY πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ’•
@kscape lol just delete your comment and repost w the pictureπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@Mrgncrch it is like numero uno on my list
@RJG I do, a lot, but others don’t 😭😭 it would be very helpful and declutter
@kscape but also yah it works for posts so it intuitively would work for comments
@kscape threading will help this a lot too!
@ManyLime @jcPlantProper @hoyahead you ladies rock!!
This weeks episode of #AsTheLeavesUnfurl is going to be GOODT. Get your popcorn! πŸ’š
@sarahsalith @hoyahead @kscape @RJG Please ignore my awful drawing and writing skills but this is an idea for the icons! Obv with some more color
Would love a reply button so we can respond to specific comments and they stay threaded to the original comment.
@RJG SORRY I know this is about oasis but this is ONLY because it’s related to something else 🫣
@RJG you'd be my #GREGHERO if you could figure out how to THREAD all these comments!

It's like sitting at the dinner table with extended family: you just have to figure out all the conversations!
@kscape I thought we always could have done! I thought @RJG was mean and decided to take it away
@sarahsalith my forte
@PlantyPlanter I am the meanest @kscape
@RJG you’re killing us over here tell us what you think about the trade thing! πŸ˜‚
@sarahsalith @kscape @hoyahead the only this is where would the icon be on Greg? πŸ€” we could put it next to the leaderboard icon but what if somebody has a long name? We could put it at the bottom but idk how that would look πŸ€”
Yesss I’m loving the gifts!!!
Okay legit suggestions: WRITE THESE DOWN

β€’Ability to search hashtags/community tags
β€’Ability to search users/oasis
β€’Small 150 character β€œmessaging” system integrated in the stories to reply to peoples posts
β€’ability to wishlist plants
β€’if we follow specific people, in a way prioritize their posts?

Another thing, is there a way to redo the home feed? There will be times where I’ll be bored and scroll down Greg, but it’ll show me posts from 2-5 days ago instead of it showing me newer posts. It’s tedious having to ONLY access newer posts by going to the β€œNew Posts” tab, instead of just scrolling and then appearing in my feed. I wanna help more people but it’s hard when new posts don’t appear in my feed. i do understand tho that the feed is composed from the community tags. I never realized how much Greg actually relies on them! @RJG
🀐 @PlantyPlanter
@RJG 😭😭😭😭 just tell me what you think of it 😭
@kscape also when you click on a comment in your notification to have it bring you to that comment, also a way to see what comment people like instead of just on that post
Maybe a feature for propagation care and how to propagate your plants and the care to make them thrive 🌱 #GregFeedback
@PlantyPlanter I think it's a very good idea. I'd love it. Add tracking so if I give you a cutting that you can track it back to my plant.
@RJG YES! And then when you click on somebody’s plant that they sold pups of you can see who has them and what they look like to see how they did!
@PlantyPlanter Yesss! I suggested to add the notifications when you make a post, pls do the same for comments @RJG @alex πŸ‘€
@MissGreenfinger i would love to help out with a tips and tricks page @RJG 😩
@PlantyPlanter FOR THIS IDEA, ON PLANT CARDS ADD LIKE A TREE OF LIFE. If it’s an established plant, cutting, bulb/corm, seed and if you were given, traded by someone on Greg or bought, AND THEN tie those to other β€œtree of life” IDK ITS COMPLICATED BUT ITS KIND OF LIKE WHAT UR TALKING ABOUT
@RJG omg I literally accidentally just drew a line of PEN on my bed sheet for this 😭😭 @kscape LOVE THE IDEA! That could be the icon for it I just put the toy because I couldn’t think of anything
@PlantyPlanter @hoyahead @MissGreenfinger @Mrgncrch @sarahsalith @RJG we need to get in a call for these recommendations one night 😩😩
@kscape what do you mean? That would be so many notification.
@kscape I’m propping my Brasil right now. Do you want some of mine? Since your in behind #ScienceWithGreg
@kscape I also have a smaller one that I can just send you. It’s up to you. Just let me know.
@RJG nonono, we already get so many notifications when people like our comments, I mean when someone replies to a comment of mine, if the notification can redirect me and β€œhighlight” the comment that they replied to, instead of it taking me to the top of the post.
@KikiGoldblatt Let me email you! I have your email :)
@kscape I have some cuttings going at the moment. Really want a Hindu rope Hoya but they are so expensive here in New Zealand!! $45 dollars for a single cutting 😩 or $200 for a mother plant 🌱 would love an easy way to track the progress and care through the Greg app specific to the little babies 
@sarahsalith @kscape @hoyahead I’m starting the #gregtrades so we can talk about this in the future!
@kscape ah yes that makes sense
@RJG what do you think about the β€œPro Greg Trader” (I just made that name up) premium where you can send people stamps unless there is another way to do it (people paying for the premium of course)
@MissGreenfinger Your Hoyas are beautiful 🀩🀩πŸ₯°
@kscape I got my Hoya from a terminally ill lady who kept in the corner of her garden for 50 years in a 15cm broken plastic pot. I repotted him for the first time last week since I got him last year. Growing season is coming can’t wait to see his progress this year! You can already see new growth. Happyness πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
@PlantyPlanter maybe just a secret doorway the traders walk through, through this app.
@Jilliebeanstalk what do you mean by that?
@RJG I feel like the first two weeks I was son Greg when someone tagged me and I tapped on it from the red dot screen it would take me right to the exact comment they wrote. Now I have to scroll wayyyyyyy down and find it. Was this all in my imagination?? πŸ’­
@Jilliebeanstalk I thought you could always add a photo to a comment you’ve already made so you wouldn’t be alone
@Jilliebeanstalk it's your imagination we haven't had that functionality
@sarahsalith @hoyahead @kscape also I would be worried about the address thing for the trade, like I guess you could have it presaved and they can only access when a trade is accepted but idk if I would want to do that with a bunch of people, I guess you don’t have to trade with ppl you don’t know but it would be nice if the plants could be sent to like a Greg P.O. Box and then shipped off so the only person getting the address is Greg, or maybe that could be optional for ppl who don’t care
@kscape I replied to your email. I’m going to send you my smaller rooted Brasil.
Any features about greenhouse plant care please
@PlantyPlanter I came to add just one thing, and it was that when clicking a notification that it brought you directly to the comment that is either mentioning you or the comment that has been liked. I want this most of all right now! So I saw yours saying the same, and I am hopping on that train!
