I wonder if this will be better ... or worse! Time will tell!
New pot (thanks to @AwesomePlants and her #DealAlert) + my SSOP that have been ignored for a bit (and are looking like they may not die on me in the next 15 minutes).

Here we go!!! Wait- will this count as #FreshLeafFriday?

#HappyPlants or #NotSoHappyPlants #StupidStringOfPearls #StringOfPearls #PlantsMakePeopleHappy ... except SSOP #NeverAgainPlant #PlantAddict #NewPot #PlayingWithPlantsInsteadOfWorking

Lolll maybe that's best? Out of sight out of mind and they will thrive! I wish it upon you and it will be!!! ✨🌱
Love that ssop
@ABCD hopefully this will work!!
Okay what does the double s stand for??
@WickedValkyrie Stupid string of pearls
Aren't your SSOP a never again? Hoping it thrives! πŸ‘πŸΏ
@AwesomePlants yup. The whole time I was potting these, I was holding my breath and thinking to myself: WHY DON'T I GET PLASTIC SOP?!?!

*sigh*
@ABCD @WickedValkyrie @AwesomePlants sooo ... here's the result.

SOMEONE should have stopped me. πŸ˜–

Ahhhh!!!!!😩 #NeverAgain
@sarahsalith hope that pot wasn’t too much
@ABCD no- it was only $5!! A total steal, if you ask me. And when these SSOP wither and die and put themselves out of my misery, I'll put the plastic SOP in there and I can put that pot wherever I want. 😁 
@sarahsalith don’t get a plastic sop
"put themselves out of my misery" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Poor Sarah πŸ–€
@ABCD then you'd better hope and pray these things do right by me! I will never admit how much money I've spent on SSOP. I just wanted them to love me! 😫
String of Pearls, just obey. At least do it for me, if you won’t do it for @sarahsalith
@sarahsalith that's a awesome pot!! Looks even better with your sop in it!!
Ohhhh that pot is cauuuute. Send it to me when you SSOP dies, I'll put my SOP in it lol
J/K I do hope your SSOP survives! I am hoping my VSOP survives... I knocked them over while trying to repot..repotting always makes me nervous..I hate exposing or touching roots.
@ABCD 🀣
@ManyLime actually, that pot has ALL my SSOP in there plus whatever was left over from my VSOP. I think here were two strands that I had in my prop box.

Are you in the #DealAlert community? There are only four that follow, but @AwesomePlants puts up posts when she finds a deal! This pot was $5!
@OKIEgrnthmb ☺️ Thanks, I really hope I can keep them happy. This is my LAST hurrah.
So pretty @sarahsalith digging that pot!
Oh those are so hard to keep alive. They should just be called string of death
@PlantyPlanter String of Death. String of Disappointments. οΏΌ String of Despair. String of JUST HURRY UP AND DIE ALREADY!

Man, Noah- you've got me on a roll....
@sarahsalith thank you! I like string of despair πŸ˜‚
@sarahsalith I'm with you there... for me it's the NOT so peaceful Peace Lilly and ferns. 🀫
Team Plastic with @sarahsalith when they decide to give up!!
@AwesomePlants 🀣🀣
@sarahsalith I joined #dealalert!
I'm so sorry SOP is such heartache. I hope I'm not soon on the heartache train along with you guys πŸ˜”
@AwesomePlants I can’t keep a fern alive for the life of me. Or the ferns!
😍
@TJphilobsessed I have one that's surviving, but ONLY because I keep it in a mini greenhouse. When I take it out to water, fronds start crisping! 😑 They are so pretty, but I want to be able to see and enjoy them like all my other plants! Still looking for a cheap container tall enough so I can put the little fern in there so I can actually see it and admire it. I am AMAZED when I see peoples ferns thriving.
Looks great πŸ‘. Hope your SSOP hang on. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚
@AwesomePlants did you look at Hobby Lobby? They have those humidity domes for your fern.
@sarahsalith I will check it out! Thanks! I didn't think to look when I went to another location that has more products.
@sarahsalith You can do it! I believe in you and these gorgeously homed sop!
Ouu love that pot! And your SOP looks great! I’ve never had any luck with them. Died every time lol
@nila these are my LAST SSOP. #NeverAgainPlant for me. After they die, I'll get a big, fat,οΏΌ luscious, plastic string of pearls and then I'll οΏΌresolve not to talk smack about them. πŸ˜‰
I love the way they're displayed in that pot.❀️
I love it! Good luck!
Well, pretty SOP and pretty pot πŸ’š
@CoolNoblefir @Mell

Thanks, y'all. I'm hopin! 🀞

I'm starting to think that I didn't think this through! The pot always has to be turned toward the light οΏΌ... which is away from the room! πŸ€ͺ You'll only be able to see it from outside!οΏΌοΏΌ
Love that pot. And your pupper.
β€œβ€¦.except SSOP.” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@KikiGoldblatt fixed it. β™₯️
Gorgeous 😍❀️
@CalmTobacco thanks! Let's revisit in about a month. 🀞
Good luck with ur SOP. Sidenote, I spot ur persian shield. Is it easy to care for? A fellow plant friend said his got attacked by ants and died. So I was worried cause my place have way too many ants.
πŸ˜‚ string of despair! I must be a masochist because I’ve been wanting to care for one for some time now lol now I’m not so sure.
@AwesomePlants yep me too, peace Lilly is definitely my never again plant. Way too much drama
@Sleepysunday my Persian Shield is a ROCKSTAR! It's super easy to care for as long as it has sun and water and a good trim once a year. It started from a 4" stick with a few leaves. Let me get a screen shot of my last tracking photo.

You can't beat the brilliant colors!
@Harat9 well, I'll be here to commiserate with you if you make the jump. For me, it's been a really tough plant ... all 12 of them that I have purchased. οΏΌοΏΌπŸ˜– It took me that long to learn my lesson.
@Sleepysunday Word of warning, in the cold months- it drops all its leaves and reverts to sticks in my care. Then I cut it back and once the temperatures rise, the pant bounces back!
@sarahsalith lol oh man..it’s beautiful though!
