I do the same thing. I like the sad ones that I can bring back to life plus they are cheaper. It’s a real problem.

There are much worse problems to have! :sweat_smile:

Whenever I spend too much on plants, I just tell myself: hey, at least it’s not going towards gin and vodka.

Oh yeah. I would much rather spend money on plants. The problem is I run out of room.

Omg girl! :sweat_smile: But how could you resist? They’re so beautiful. I split my triostar and will be taking one to my Mami in March. I can’t believe how much growth they both have had since I split them! And I love how the leaves unfurl in a spiral.

P.S. They need a good bath and trim! These Iowa winters are harsh.

I joined a local plant lovers group and regularly give plants away or sell them if they are fancy. It’s fun!

I have a winter tomato! It’s growing in my son’s bedroom window.

Repotted my astrophytum asterias.
Can’t wait til they start blooming again in ~3 mos.

Don’t think I’ve posted my dragonscale leaves that were unfurling over the last 6 weeks or so. Fully mature, beautiful leaves now.

Have also started training my pothos vines, they were reaching the side table at this point. Amazing how much it’s grown in 7 months.
I’d love to eventually have vines all over the wall (I only plan to be in this apartment another 6 months, however).

Finally bit the bullet and started my planted aquarium today!! Excited to fill it with more plants and eventually some little fishies :seedling::fish:

Lovely sunny spot! It almost looks like you have a roadrunner in the aquarium!

Lady got a haircut this morning. She was hanging down almost to the sink and straight up wedged into cleaning station on the side. I’ll propagate the ends to plant back into this one and the other I have hanging in Eric’s office.
