Sad little rescue jade from Lowe's

Laura RobichaudNovember 28, 2012

Poor little variegated jade I got for $1.49 tonight. He'll go into gritty mix and a nice clay pot tomorrow.

Laura,

PLJ looks to be in fine fettle, and you'll be giving it even more salubrious conditions. Excellent purchase.

I split the three jades up and put them in gritty mix in small, separate clay pots. They're sitting on a SE window sill. I won't water for a while. It was in really wet, peaty medium.

Laura I'm jealous your Lowe's store has verigated jades. I have yet to see one at mine and I want one really bad.

Nothing poor or sad about those jades, they look in great shape to me, compared to a lot of the clearance plants. I am sure they will thrive in your care.

I think jades are an easy rescue. I found a little Skinny Finger 'Gollum' type jade at Lowe's once on clearance for a dollar, and now it is thriving, these are what they look like now.

Christopher, your jades look beautiful! I sometimes feel if I buy a plant from Lowe's or HD it's akin to buying a puppy from a pet store rather than a reputable breeder. It is fun to provide a neglected plant with the right conditions and watch it thrive. I try to be careful about not bringing any bugs home with the plant!

Thanks. Honestly, in my opinion, you can get just as good quality plants from the big box stores as my local greenhouse, which I do buy from as well. It depends when you get the plants, of course. For example, today I saw what to my eyes were Kelly Griffin Aloes in Walmart for $2.98. Even though they were a bit worse for wear, still a good value, in my book.
