Current trip to the store!

Stush2049(Pitts., Pa. 6)August 1, 2013

Look what I found at Lowes on clearence. The pig I am, I bought all 4 of them. At only $3 each and from before bying them, I know there there is 6 plants in each pot. Now what am I going to do with so many? Great gifts!
Now, They were there for at least 4 months and in complete water. The pots had to be emptied of excess water before I could buy them. How do they endore such abuse. Must be something in there soil they are using. Looks peaty but it may be other products as well. I would really love to know this. Inside the store is air conditioned and in autofictial light.

Gawd!
I am very happy for you and pretty jealous to tell the truth.
We usually get dead spider plants at our lowes.
Very nice looking plants.

What a great find Stush :) they are beautiful! I'm jealous too..... been trying to find 'Moonshine' and golden hahnii but our big box stores only have common--dark green, thin, tall Sans. Thanks for sharing :)

nice find. it amazes me the growing medium that they use to grow them. Do the pots have holes in the bottom?

laura,
I removed them out of their white pots and still have them in the regular 4" plastic pots. And no the ceramic pots have no holes in them. I plan to separate them and plant the whole group into a window box.
I would give as gifts to anyone here who wants one or a few.

Great score, Stush!
Yes, these are tough plants in many regards....
however, without you saving them, they would have rotted eventually. Well done.

Very, very nice! You are very lucky to have found those at your local Lowe's! Everytime I go (often) there has yet to be a Bentel's Sensation! I wonder why some Lowe's get them and others do not! ( I live in southeastern MA). I am happy for you! My day will come. Enjoy!

Hey guys, email me if you what some. I am having trouble finding boxes to fit them in. So I might be a little late shipping them. Unless I go priority mail. They give you boxes free.

I'm usually not that lucky to find good sale stuff at Lowe's. I did see someone else nab a nice hoya (one of the more unusual ones) a few weeks ago.
Good trade material Stush!

Laura,
Gifts not trades. I have been freely given more than I can wish for in trading so these are gifts.

Yep! now I remember, Nah no shooting going on right now thank God besides photo shoots of my succulent garden which I intend to post soon, All is well here and hope all is going well for you and your family too.

It's another Hot! one today right about 100* with humidity which I don't mind seeing the plants seem to thrive in it.
