Lowes DR Follow-up

I ended up returning to Lowe's to buy one of the $14.95 DR's I mentioned in a prior post.

Healthy looking plant, overall:

Well, "at least it wasn't root bound." I honestly have no idea why they pot these things up the way they do.

This looks like a 3-year old seedling that has probably never been raised. I am of the opinion you get better results if you continually raise the plant, a little at a time. Even though this one has a large base it is somewhat boring and without interesting twists/curves/etc.

The end result- overall not bad for a $15 plant.

Yes, I agree, it's a nice healthy looking plant. What a good find you had there, I hope it does well for you.

Pretty nice looking plant for the cost. Good find.

RE: Lowes DR Follow-up

That is beautiful plant for $15, I hope it will bloom it head off for you next blooming season.
Your mix looks great and the pot is perfect for the plant.

RE: Lowes DR Follow-up

Thanks all, that is an "azalea pot" which is sold at the big box stores. I have recently switched from traditional terra-cotta pots to shorter pots and things that look more like bowls. It is subjective but I think these plants look better in those type of pots.

RE: Lowes DR Follow-up

Very nice plant. Thats very handy to know those pots are called azalea pots. You learn something every day. The plant looks very nice in it

RE: Lowes DR Follow-up

Great plant and what a deal for $15!

Great plant,
I got one at my Lowes at clearance , $ 7.50 the other day. The girl said all plants had to be outta here to make room for Christmas stuff.
Went back later and they were all gone. Price was right.
