Puregold Channel's 'My Plantito' Cast Led by Kych & Michael Responds to Ultimate Fan Reactions

DAYS after Puregold Channel’s My Plantito wrapped up its wildly popular series on Tiktok, fans were still feeling heady from the emotional rollercoaster ride that was Charlie and Miko's love journey. 

Without a doubt, the show captivated viewers not just for its adorable boy-love narrative, but also for weaving in plot twists that dealt with relatable themes such as family, friendship, and meaningful life lessons.

Kych Minemoto & Michael Ver

My Plantito presented the heartwarming tale of aspiring content creator Charlie (Kych Minemoto) and his handsome neighbor, the young businessman and plantito Miko (Michael Ver). Through intriguing turns, wrong decisions, and kilig moments, followers eagerly awaited the answer they had craved for from the start: would Charlie and Miko get their happy ending?

In total, My Plantito episodes garnered an impressive 52.4 million views on Puregold Channel’s Tiktok and YouTube platforms.

As the series finale came to a head, My Plantito fans savored a satisfying conclusion to the beautiful narrative. Here’s what they had to say, and how some cast members reacted to them.

Kych Minemoto & Devi Descartin

Bianca’s Controversial Advice

One character who stirred the pot and got tongues wagging on TikTok and YouTube was Bianca (Devi Descartin), Charlie's best friend. Some fans were furious, blaming her for steering Charlie in the wrong direction more than once. Comments from the fandom expressed their frustration:

"Ah, Bianca! Wrong again. And again. And again. Please send her to Botswana and have her bring back some exotic plants . . . two years from now." - @gnirolnamlerf593

"Only a friend like 'Bianca' is enough to destroy your peace of mind and to get delusional thoughts." - @user-um7to8rj6o

However, not everyone was quick to cancel Bianca. Some fans appreciated the complexity of her character:

"Bianca, she is a toxic friend but at the same time a caring soul." - @Joe.Ortega

"I don't know that girl; but for me, she isn't toxic. She's just being real. She's telling the truth that her best friend should prioritize work. Goals first." - @joeverclarion7813

Devi Descartin, the actress behind Bianca, sheds light on her character's intentions, saying, "As Charlie’s best friend, gusto kong makuha ni Charlie kung ano ‘yung matagal na niyang pangarap. Number #1 fan and supporter nga 'di ba. Though in the end, na-realize naman ni Bianca kung anong resulta ng plano niya. She learned her lesson."

Some fans also commended Descartin's performance. For instance, @romulus.evales.futureteacher remarked, "Effective pala ang gumanap na Bianca dito, ang daming nanggigigil."

Kych Minemoto & Ghaello Salva

Janong: The Best Dad Ever

On a brighter note, the character of Janong (Ghaello Salva), Charlie's dad, stole the spotlight as the series' beloved father figure. Fans showered love on Janong for his unwavering support and genuine affection for his son:

"Who agrees with me that his dad deserves someone to love him as much as he loves his son? Best dad." - @sandrablack4197

"Nakakatuwa ang daddy niya. Napakabait and supportive. Cool lang na daddy." - @chubzyhatz3135

"Isa sa pinakagusto ko sa series na ito ay ang napaka-supportive na father." - @philipmanansala8855

Ghaello Salva, who plays Janong, basks in the overwhelming love: "Actually, knowing the viewers of My Plantito were millennials and Gen Zs, I didn't expect them to give Janong more than casual attention. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for welcoming Janong and my son Charlie into your hearts."

Salva also shares some valuable advice for parents: "Support and open communication are crucial. We need to show selfless love to them. And as parents, let's educate ourselves about LGBTQ+ issues and create a safe space where they may feel accepted and understood."

Michael Ver

Miko: The Heartthrob of My Plantito

Miko’s character, portrayed by the dashing Michael Ver, generated a huge swoonfest among followers who fell for his good looks and strong appeal.

"I keep viewing all of Miko's scenes over and over AND OVER again . . . but I can't get enough of my plantito Michael Ver!" - @fmaximo1979

"Miko? There isn't a straight girl or gay guy who would reject you. It's cute that Miko doesn't realize that, though." - @gnirolnamlerf593

While Miko received tons of compliments and heart-eyed emojis, Michael Ver doesn’t let this go to his head. Sharing his perspective on the series and his role, he says, "I felt excited and nervous in creating My Plantito because I have never been in a boy-love series ever. I accepted this project because I love the story and the reality that it tackles.”

Michael also expresses his gratitude to My Plantito viewers. “I was overwhelmed by how the fans took to the love team of Miko and Charlie. I really appreciate their positive responses and reactions!”

Miko-Charlie Chemistry: A Love Team to Remember

Amid the cheers for Janong's parenting style, the arguments over Bianca's moves as BFF, and the collective sighs over Miko's charm, there is one aspect of My Plantito that fans can't stop talking about—the undeniable chemistry between Miko and Charlie. As the series finale leaves fans yearning for more, the call for more projects featuring the beloved duo echoes across social media.

"The chemistry is so good. More projects for Miko and Charlie, please!" - @iamkennethic

"I'm starting to love the chemistry between Miko and Charlie. In fairness, pareho silang neophytes pero magaling silang umarte. Sana mabigyan sila ng mas malaki pang projects. Finger crossed! Love you both!" - @amirprince68

Fans are not shy about expressing their desire for more Miko-Charlie collaborations, and the lead actors are equally touched by the overwhelming support. Kych Minemoto, who brought Charlie to life, is immensely grateful for the warm reception to their love team:

"Sobrang thankful po talaga ako na maging part ng My Plantito. Ngayon, bawat paglabas ko may nagpapa-picture na at nagsasabi na napanood nila ako sa My Plantito. May mga nagsasabi na naka-relate sila sa kwento. Fan meet pa lang dama na namin ang suporta ng fans. Sa online, lagi tayong trending."

Kych Minemoto

Adding a touch of kilig, Minemoto sends a heartfelt message to his on-screen partner, Michael Ver, who plays Miko:

"Message ko for Michael: ‘Ituloy mo lang ang pagiging masipag mo sa trabaho, at ang grabeng dedication mo.’ Makikita mo na pursigido talaga si Michael sa ginagawa niya. Mami-miss ko ang mga kulitan at kwentuhan namin pagkatapos ng mga eksena. ‘Michael, message ka lang dahil nandito lang kami para sumuporta sa iyo.’ "

While the romantic thrill has not waned following the show’s last episode, Kych Minemoto teases fans for a possible second season: "I'm wishing na sana magkaroon ng Season 2 at matuloy natin kung ano pa kaya ang nangyari kina Miko at Charlie. Abangan!"

The series has ended but the kilig lives on: fans can watch My Plantito on Puregold’s official YouTube and Tiktok channels.
