Good evening folks! I just want to share the deal I got this evening. It wasn't my intention to buy plants at Lowes. I just went there to check if they have started putting their plants on clearance. Guess what, their Tropicanna Black Cannas are on clearance for 10 cents each. So I bought all their cannas. I brought home 22 pots. WOOHOO!!!!

Here are the pics.

yeah thats a pretty good deal. I would have tried to talk them down to .07 to .08 cents per plant. Nicely done even if you paid too much. j/k.

I went back there this morning. Brought home 5 ft tall spruce for $3 each. :D

I also saw another canna and it was 7' tall. The regular price was $50. I got it for $4. I will post a picture of it later.

Thanks!

yeah, my wife told me that she already noticed it last year that it's only Lowes that really gives a great plant clearance/sale in our area. :D

Thanks! I actually brought in the following as house plants:

1. Bengal Tiger
2. Australia
3. Tropicanna Black

The tropicanna black had a really nice very dark maroon folliage. After more than 1 week inside the house with only 30 mins of sunlight, the dark maroon foliage is gone. The color green is showing up. However, for the Australia, it has retained it's color and it's growing fast too. For the bengal tiger, I don't see any change.

I'll post a pic tomorrow.
