@gardengirlla Maggie I get a lot of my plants from trades and on the Internet. This one I got from amazon a year ago and it came in looking rough. I would not recommend buying it from there. I am getting my ducks in a row to start importing them in bulk from Korea bc i need lots of them and for cheap lol
I used to use etsy a lot but sometimes the prices there makes me cringe. I went a few weeks ago to look for succulents at the big box stores around here but they were all cleared out. Maybe they've got new stock! My sister in law in new Iberia said she found a laui at home depot. Idk if it's true, she just pointed out one of my plants and said she got one of them at HD. I almost cried when she said that lol. I want home depot lauis D: @gardengirlla youve heard a lot of ppl trade locally via fb?
@gardengirlla free shipping is my selling point too! You effectively pay double for these plants when you factor in shipping. My favorite free shipping etsy shop closed down earlier this year /: I like to hit up the city wide garage sale to look for succulents. People kinda beg for you to take their propagations lol. Mostly people around here have sedum. I did find one lady last year that has night blooming cereus and hoyas. I asked her to please look for interesting ones to sell this year
@gardengirlla let me know if you find anything good! <3 I haven't gone public w this but I am totally opening a shop for imports. When I go to place orders I could send you a link to the Korean pages I am ordering from so you can piggyback off of the giant orders. Only thing is I don't want to sell to friends which is why I am opening the shop under a pseudonym and detaching it from myself. I wouldn't sell to you but you could "buy them directly" from my source and I could mail them to you when
Never in my adult life have I been bullied by a person like how I've experienced with a user on this app. It's a shame I can't enjoy this app like I did before this user started harassing me here and on another platform even. Plants are very therapeutic. I suffer from extreme anxiety and succulents are my escape. These are just plants. I don't understand how someone could go around stealing the calm of gardening from others. Apologies for my long gaps between posts. I just can't handle the stres
@ohhyouknow Lauren... Isn't there a way to report it? I think I speak for all of GTers when I say that improper conduct on this app should NOT be tolerated. You are right, we use this app because we enjoy gardening life plus it's nice interacting with other plant lovers around the world... Not to have some "jackass" (pardon my french) give us a hard time. I'm sorry this is happening. But it's good to speak up.
@angiie I have finally sent emails about it. For a long time I thought something was wrong w ME until I started seeing it happen to other people. Then I reached out to make sure the experiences I had weren't unique and I was not imagining seeing it happen to these others. I am not unique. I know ppl who don't use the app anymore for the same reason. It makes me pretty sad.
Thank you for your honest heart. Bullying is not tolerated on this app - at all... We are all here to learn & grow together in a positive, encouraging way, with novice to masters in gardening! Harassment is not allowed. I'm sorry this is happening... As a very proud Ambassador for the United States - I'm going to tag the creators of this phenomenal app, as this can't continue! Lauren, you do deserve to be here! I will fight for you! 🥰 @usgardentags @ukgardentags @David @thedanielrichards ⬆️
@ohhyouknow Hopefully this matter will be addressed. You did the correct thing by sharing this with us so we can be aware of what's happening. Is it sad? YES. But please don't stop sharing your beautiful pics with us!! Don't let him/her get to you. #weneedablockbutton #blockfeatureneeded
Thank you so much @KariSamuel @angiie I tried instagram but it is just not the same. Pretty much every other person I have come across on here is so kind and helpful. I really enjoy sharing with everyone and feel badly when I don't because I'm worried I might come into that person's radar. Other people don't deserve me "ignoring" them because I try to hide from someone else block feature would be amazing
@ohhyouknow You're welcome 😏 Please keep me posted on the outcome of this @KariSamuel Thank you for tagging creators, hope This issue is solved ASAP. This is a phenomenal app, we need to fight for it. Improper people shouldn't be allowed to do harm 👍
Closeup. Leaves always doing weird things which I assume is normal for these guys. A few streaks of variegation and currently some leaves growing in that appear to be split in half? If it goes crested I'll just lose my mind.
Thanks @Cyndi @Soph1e @pootchie! Sophie they are a lot smaller than I imagined based on pictures. Looks like they are gonna need lots of leaves to get wide. Super thirsty too! I water this at least once a week. I hope yours do well! They seem to make lots of babies.
@Yollymac I can see the red wanting to come out but I think it’s too warm in here. When I got this one it was looking rouuuuuuugh lol. I guess they are just still babies. I don’t think they are much more than an inch wide right now.
@Jyotu @richard.spicer.7906 Thanks! It is a totally different plant now. I was pretty bummed when it first came in but I think it’s looking better now than it would be looking if it arrived in decent condition. It had stretched so much it left a lot of room for babies. Maybe also the stress made it put more pups too idk
8.15.18 Ordered this supposed suyeon cluster and just wow, I have never seen a sadder succulent in person. Idk what to even do with this.. did they pack it up months ago and just slapped a shipping label on it when I bought it? Wtf. Def getting a refund, this is sad. 😢
