Happy #FreshLeafFriday!!
๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ Good Morning #GregGang!

How is everyone this week?

๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Gonna start today with a special shout-out to the #gregteam who has been pumping out amazing updates as fast as they can! In effort to maintain our momentum, the team is going to be taking next week to relax, spend time with family and friends, and recharge before we make the big push through the rest of the year. So if you notice it's a little quiet next week don't fret, we'll be back hungry and scrapping to go Monday, August 8!

๐ŸŒฑ Now for that #NewGrowth!! You know what I wanna see! Drop those new leaves, flowers, and produce in the comments! Tag your friends! Lets send the team out on vacay with a bang!

I hope you all have a great weekend.

I still feel new to the app, and yet Iโ€™m SO grateful for the #GregGang and the #GregTeam! I hope everyone has a restorative week. Also, Iโ€™m an astrology nerdโ€ฆ and this week is the PERFECT time to step back and take a break. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

Idk if I have friends on the app yet?? But Iโ€™ll tag some folks I appreciate - Iโ€™ve been saving #NewGrowth photos just for #FreshLeafFriday!!
@sarahsalith @jcPlantProper @caleb @kscape @indigenouswoman @FitSedum @Marthamaywho92 @Sassylimey

I would be happy to call any of these folks friends!!
I just got my #plantproper order so these are all fresh leaves as far as Iโ€™m concerned โ˜บ๏ธ
@Megan can confirm all leaves are fresh! Did you let @jcPlantProper know ๐Ÿ‘€
@rjg Morning!!! This new baby came about recently ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
@Megan YAY!! Beautiful
@ShinyBudew omg the little pups grow so fast. Get ready for a ride!
Lots of new growth. #monsteramob
My Mini Monstera has 5 new leaves coming in. Some you can see and some are so small that it makes it hard to see. My heartleaf philodendron and my orchid.
Morning! Happy #FreshLeafFriday

First up is a new big leaf on my old monstera thatโ€™s been struggling. Iโ€™m happy to see it was able to put a new leaf out.

Second up is a new leaf on my monstera pinnatipartita, which was also struggling and lost a leaf or two recently. Happy to see new growth here.

Next up is my rainbow anthurium out on the balcony thatโ€™s pushing out a new โ€œflowerโ€

Last here is my tineke who I think will pop this new leaf soon maybe ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

@RJG amorphophallus atroviridis (voodoo lilly) its a corm based aroid haha
My jungle leaf is trying to put out a new leaf
My mom's veggie are coming in nicely. Some peppers and cherry tomatoes. And my Polly is pushing out a new leaf already! And my tiny dancer threw me a new leaf. So fast it took me by surprise!

Please have a wonderful and safe vacation #gregfam. We appreciate all that you do. Party hard
For todays FLF Iโ€™m showing off / confessing to the plants Iโ€™ve nearly but not quite killed ๐Ÿ˜ฌ yay for resilience I guess?
Happy Friday!
My two almost dead Calathea - my cathedral windows and zebra are putting out new growth after dropping all but two of their leaves! It gives me hope! ๐Ÿ’ž #CalatheaCrew #plantsofthe40thstreetbungalow
@cjred that's so cool!
@SpikeKing19 mine has a couple coming in too rn!

The mug is so cute ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐ŸคŒ๐Ÿ’ž
@RJG oh wow! Love that hashtag!! Thank you!! I keep cheering them on too!
@emmybee we love to hear that you're finding a place here! (and that we picked a good week to recharge)

And what a list! All fantastic #Greggers!
The post I was waiting all week for! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™ˆ Happy #FreshLeafFriday everybody! Last time only 1 pothos propagation opened a new leaf but now theyโ€™re ALL starting to grow! These were planted months ago so I was so excited! Iโ€™ve also noticed my tradescantia getting fuller and happier, my VFT has some weird looking but plenty of new growth, and lastly I wanted to share my momโ€™s ridiculous fiddle leaf fig that has unfurled its THIRD leaf this week! ๐Ÿ˜
@AthleteMendoza hey Luna! Welcome to Greg! We give the mugs away as gifts to our top contributors. Here's how you can get your own #gregmug! https://plantx.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4416213725204-How-do-I-become-a-Greg-Top-Contributor-
@fabiana great growth!
Girll.. the vft I named after you๐Ÿ’€... I don't know I'm still hanging on to my lil dead friend lol
And my fiddle leaf STILL won't push me out a daggon ANYTHING ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
More new growth! And a little lacewing doing itโ€™s job to fight pests on the last photo!
@fabiana dude you and the plants are crushing it this week!

hey @Mobymeg! Welcome to Greg! The plants look great!!
@ManyLime patience for the fiddle ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ how are you this lovely Friday?

Omg @MeganO we need a #BeneficialBugs update!!!
@RJG Good Morning, before I forget just wanted to wish everyone on the Greg Team a happy,relaxing and well deserved vacation! Thanks for all the hard work ๐Ÿ˜“
Iโ€™m busy working a 60 hour week, but my office plant I got from #plantproper is pushing out two new leaves! Having it at work makes me feel better and helps me cope with stress. Iโ€™m a pharmacist and my job is made of stress. ๐Ÿ˜…
Goodness where to start. Violet Femmes sneezed and her new flowers popped out like a squeeze toy. Jadeโ€™s Addiction has got new leaves all over the place, Eddie Money is about to become a floor tree, and Cool & The Gang are looking great as a family unit! (Figgy Pop apparently wants to take a break ๐Ÿ™„) ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ Get that vaca, team!
@ManyLime donโ€™t give up on us!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Sheโ€™s still alive somewhere under the soil lol... maybe try bringing her inside because when mine was outside it looked kinda rough but itโ€™s doing MUCH much better.
I donโ€™t know HOW that fiddle leaf is doing so well. Sheโ€™s in a 14โ€ mega pot and has mealybugs!! But I am so proud of for pushing through! we have another fiddle leaf fig that is also dormant so I guess itโ€™s hit or miss with them ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
@Ms.Persnickety thanks so much Monika!
@Jana85 office plant is THRIVING. thanks for all you do! An absolutely integral part of the healthcare community! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Omg @Figglet your plants have the BEST names ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿคฉ how's your week been?
All my tomatoes that were almost ripe were taken by creatures ๐Ÿ˜ข
@emmybee I LOVE the way you have the names on your plants! You're so organized. ๐Ÿ˜
@ABCD while you were at camp?
@Jana85 That plant looks so beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ
Some medicinals in the wild from yesterday evening hike. Both great in tea, bee balm and echinacea.
Rest up and have some poorly lighted plant pics!
ZZ Raven I split up is growing a new leaf.
what a good spot @eric! They're super pretty!

They look good to me @TheGoodWench !!
@RJG I'm good thank you! Back to work, boo.. but hey, gotta pay bills ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ. How was Chicago?
@RJG RIGHT! @cjred is the #Begonia whisperer! I love looking at his.
Whereโ€™s the #FicusGang at???

My Ficus Tineke (Vincent van Grogh) is getting close to unfolding a new piece of art ๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿฅน
@fabiana hmmm... maybe I should try bringing her inside... but.. I don't have much hope lol. That fig is annooooooyyyinnggggg ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
@sarahsalith Aw thank you! Blue tags for names (it helps my partner help with watering, which she loves, but she does NOT know plant types lol), and red tags for special care!
@ManyLime My little 4 y/o neighbor is in a WHY phase. Asked why I was going back in to work.

My response: I gotta work so I can buy more plants! ๐Ÿคฃ #WorkToSupportPlantAddiction ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฟโ€โ™€๏ธ
@RJG Thank you!! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿช๐ŸŒ‘๐Ÿ”ฎ

@GreenPrincess I'm so jealous! I've had mine for 18 months and I've had zero growth ๐Ÿ˜ญ
@ManyLime it was great! Wish we could have stayed longer. The weather and the plants in downtown is just perfect ๐Ÿฅฐ
