The two Home Depots in my area usually get several shipments of Tropicanna through the Spring and Summer months.

I had never seen a Tropicanna before and I came upon some at my neighborhood Target store-- I fell in love immediately and bought two. I repotted them (one was ready to burst out of its container!) and they're now sitting in a sunny area of my patio. I can't get over how stunningly gorgeous they are-- and no genetic engineering, I don't believe. I paid $12.99 each and they're about two feet tall. I watch them like a hawk because I don't want any pests to bother them.

I love Tropicanna also.

I have been growing it here for about 5 years now. Started with 1 pot - paid $34.99 for a 2 gallon size.

Was a steal because all the ones here for sale are infected with a virus.

Saw them listed in a Rona flyer for $17.88 for 1 gal. I sell my extras for $6 for 1 gal. Helps to pay for my soilless mix costs.

Tropicanna is gorgeous, if you get a healthy one. The big box stores here have Tropicanna and Tropicanna Black, but with dead brown streaks through the foliage. Virus? Or poor care? Either way I won't buy from them.

Bought one for my mother at Home Depot. $12.99ish. Beautiful plant.
