    I can relate, but I am waiting patiently to purchase from your cacti shop. 🙂 Don't worry because I know I'm not alone. I currently have close to 400 cacti growing and most from seed. Every year I have two sales – one neighborhood and one Conservatory sale. It helps. When you start your shop I am here to help you unload. 🙂

    Dear Lyn, i´m so glad your talking about this. I follow your videos now for some years, and i remeber that i told my husband some months ago, that i am a little worried about your plant addiction. I wantet to tell you, that in the beginning your videos gave me more pleasure, because everything in your videos was "lighter" (i don´t find the right word for it), and with the years and months an the growing amount of followers (and plants!) everything became more serious and "heavier".
    I also collect plants, i breed cacti, and it is so important to "declutter" to not be overgrown. I love to breed, but i can only do it, because i give away 90% of my seedlings and cuttings to other plant-lovers. Giving away plants is not a crime!!!
    Sometimes especially your videos give me the energy to go in my greenhouse an fill a big box with plants for a give-away, and it always feels so good!
    You need space and time to care for the plants. Less is more.
    I love the advise of the japanese "declutter-specialist" Marie Kondo: Does it give joy to you? If not, you can give it away.

    Find your own way. It would be great if you could find the "light" side again 😉
    Love from Germany!

    I have a question about a plant in this video. I see on a black plastic stand in the polytunnel on the left side as you are going in on a lower shelf what I think is an Aloe albiflora. Am I right? It looks in such nice condition. Is it out in the polytunnel all winter in cool temps? I have one but mine is not doing as well as yours.

    Wait a minute….I saw some room on that black shelf…. Last count I have 75 and my kitchen window is lined with jars filled with water rooting Angel wing Begonias. I don't have any more room. spring can't come soon enough..I need to move some outdoors. With this cold weather we're having, I had to bring the ones in from my unheated porch.

    I do think it's possible to have too many plants, but I don't think it's a set number. The needs of some plants are far greater than others. There's also the possibility of simplifying the way you care for them (like automated lights, heat, and humidity) and adding space (by adding a greenhouse perhaps).

    Hi Lynn still loving ur Accent

    I love plants and gardens so much. But I also like peaceful, serene non cluttered spaces. So I have many of my favourites only. My home and garden in my opinion look beautiful, filling me with calm peace. I don't have a problem with buying too many. It is interesting you call it an addiction. I am stumped as to what my cause a plant addiction. A need for nurture, serenity? I don't know. You have done a beautiful job in maintaining your collection over the years. I have been impressed and enjoy your vlogs. Time is a non renewable resource. We are only gifted so much. Take care Lyn.

    Hi Lyn, I have a plant addiction! I LOVE plants & being surrounded by them. They bring me comfort & some sense of peace. I can't describe it but I am very connected with my plants. I know how you feel & would be happy to take some off your hands. Do you have a site setup for selling? I always have more room for plants. I see you are filled to the brim! I love your passion & love for plants. <3

    And who will take them all when you are no longer around? Would the society take everything? Not sure where mine will end up as I don’t know people who’d take them and do a good job of caring for them where I live

  • Bruh 1 year ago

    I definitely have an addiction. I try to limit myself to the max amount that will fit under my grow lights. Lol

    Cost is a problem too because many unusual plants, particularly cacti and succulents, are very expensive! I have the plant addiction big time and I get anxiety at the thought of not getting more also. I live in Phoenix and have no shade house (many of my friends do in Phoenix), greenhouse or polytunnel (both very very expensive because of the tremendous heat here), and not inside because all my windows have shutters and sunscreens to keep the heat out. Mine are outside under a lemon tree and in the shade on the east side of my house. Many I take up to my mountain cabin in Pine, AZ so they can have cool nights in the summer. I also have to move or heavily cover them in the winter because we do get frost periods! All this moving (as you have too!) is a huge effort and I am 72 years old. I don't know what is going to happen in a few years … if you know what I mean!!! Thank you so much for your video! I know I am not alone; that helps!

    And a question: Is it just plants, or are there other collections in your home, as well? I suspect it's a personality thing, as I also enjoy acquiring books and art supplies. But currently plants take up the most time and real estate, which is why I'm attempting to downsize.

    I'm trying to rein in my addiction at the moment. It helps to set rules on what you can buy and why (and to cap the price or set a yearly budget if necessary) but mostly it helps to just enjoy what you have. If you don't have time to enjoy the plants you already have and to care for them properly then it becomes a chore rather than something you love to do. I've ended up losing a few plants to bugs and bad weather because I didn't have time to deal with them and I try to remember that when buying more. This year I'm focusing on getting the best out of the plants I have and propagating some to make spares. It doesn't help when you get free plants though or see something you just have to have…

    Never.not here on earth.

  • PlantAnarchy 1 year ago

    I made a video very similar to this not so long ago, and I definitely think it's very possible to have too many plants. There's a point where it can become really overwhelming, even if you love the plants, especially if you're dealing with a lot of issues with the plants because it can feel like you are always dealing with problems and never have time to just enjoy the plants. If you've got 10 plants and one or two have a problem at a time, it's no big deal, but if you're got 1000 plants and 100 or so have an issue, that's a huge one!

    When you find plants who suffer because you forgot them…then you have to many… Even if you don´t buy any new plants, you keep cuttings when you prune, so the collection will allways grow… It´s allways nice to give away if you trust the taker and you are sure that the plants get a good home.
