I would have bought them myself, perhaps unconsciously hip-checking you to get to them. I've yet to find another 'Oddity', and 'Cebenese' is one I don't have whatsoever. Nice plants.

I was surprised to find named ones there. I should have bought the other Oddity they had when I bought this one. They were only $3.50. I went back to get it later but they had overwatered it and it was rotting. I need to remember to check our other Walmart when I am there.

I absolutely love the Oddity. I am scared to put it outside. Some sites say it is hardy to zone 3, others say zone 5. If you have grown it, what can you tell me about it's hardiness? I think I will just put it in a pot and bring it in during winter. I am less worried about the Cebenese, and It will have to take it's chances in the yard.

Hi Chica,

I'm curious to know if you have any ideas as to what may have caused your previous lack of success with ''Oddity"?

Are you finding it not winter hardy? vermin? or something else?

I had several Semps in my clutch recently and put ''Oddity'' back on the shelf, anticipating going back if I found enough garden space, which I have.

Thanks.

Dan

Chica - I would also like to know what happened to yours. Seeing that you are in zone 10, I am assuming it has nothing to do with being winter hardy. Did it get to much moisture? The ones that I went back for at Walmart had started to rot.

Cactusmcharris - Do you still have an Oddity or did you lose it?

Val,
Mr webmaster seems to be assigning those of us who have not plugged in our zone with a ''10''...and I'm no Bo Derek...........

Dan,

You're hilarious.
