What was I thinking?

I was at Lowes to get another plant stand since I used my fifth and last one on my Sans t. Laurentii that I got a couple weeks ago, and while I was there I saw a couple little 4 inch EA pots of Sans t. Hahnii, just the plain old regular Hahnii, which I don't have. Why didn't I get them?! Hopefully there will still be some whenever I get a chance to go back. I keep saying "no more plants this year" then I keep finding more that I want! AAARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!

Dontcha hate that?! When you don't get a plant that's 'callin your name', it keeps 'haunting' you until you go back!

If you don't find it, let me know and I can send you an offset of mine.

Do you realize that if you acquire every darn sansevieria out there that you will need a huge house with lots of windows, greenhouses, and a staff of people to help you take care of them all. I mean, there are hundreds of sansevierias. Yes, they are easy and they love houseplant conditions--more so than just about any other plant. You (I mean me!) must resist the temptation to have every single one. Lowly hahnii is a nice one and can be kept small but just maybe you shouldn't pine over not getting it this time. Save that space for any one of 100,000 other nice plants out there.

Jon, who knows only too well.

Well said Jon. I decided I wasn't really too worried about going back for the hahnii. If one shouldfall in my lap, so be it, but I'm not in any rush. I think I was just feeling weird for not buying a plant that I saw, it's usually no question. Maybe it's the first step towards resistance!
