My local Walmart ('New' Harbor Mall) in Fall River, Mass. is having a clearing of its cacti supply. 5 for $5. Pretty good specimens. I'd buy them, but I'm into growing them by seed.
We never have sales like that. [:o(( NOmra
My local Walmart keeps them in the darkest spot in the store until they die and then throws them out. Never a price reduction. (Not exaggerating)
Some of the local Wall Marts are having clearance sales to make room for Xmas stuff. Not all stores are doing this Â just some. 50% or more off all plants Â including cacti & succulents.
I got a bunch last week, they are not clearance stuff, but all new from Canadian nursery. They were priced $1 and $2 each. Got some nice lithops for $1 each, haworthias, big mamillaria and barrel cactus, nice crassula and big echeverias. Can't beat that price.
wow thats pretty good! I got my lithops in the ottawa market (most people wont know what this is) at the cactus stall. although my lithops was $5.50
Thanks sagebrush....look what I got for $7
In trouble again. lol
I bought the three for six ($) they are the larger ones and I put them in a pebble filled tray as well. Im hoping they do well all winter. I had three others outside that I had bought earlier in the season.
The big question is...should I go back and spend $15 or $20 and have a much larger collection then I have now?
I am actively involved in our senior center. Could this be a fund raiser for us. I could spend $50 today. Have some little old ladies get involved with growing little cacti into bigger ones and sell them for...let's say $5. Would this be worth $200.....should I spend $200 and turn it into $1000.
Why are these little cacti so cheap!!!
I succumbed and bought two of the 3 for $6.00 myself. One is a pachypodium and the other looks like a jade. The little harbor freight greenhouse is in danger of bursting open.
okay i am going to walmart tomorrow!!!
I got several and one is a VARIEGATED Madagascar palm about a foot high - just GORGEOUS!
I was so excited about my new purchase that I brought my little garden to work with me-an assisted living facility. Several of my residents whispered that it's cute how excited I can get over little things like a few plants.
Isn't it great that a few plants can bring us so much happiness. I certainly did not see a madagascar palm...should I take a road trip to another walmart?
I have three WM within 5 miles of my home and they all had them - you might check outside your area WM.
Kayjones, I've never seen variegated Madagascar palm. Can you post picture. No pachypodiums at our Walmarts here.
