    For those whom I did not torture with these pics earlier ...

    Well folks, it has happened. We who are orchid enthusiasts are no longer alone in our angst with the plants we love being defaced by marketers dying them unnatural colors. No, gentle reader, our aesthetic good taste is not the only casulty of marketing. It has now spread like a virulent plague. No longer are orchids dyed hideous shades of blue or other abhorrent colors the only travesties out there to offend our delicate sensibilities. Cacti/succulents have also fallen victim.

    The following pictures are not pretty sights. You may wish to send the children out of the room lest they be traumatized. You may also wish to have a plastic bag or trash can by your side in case the sight of these poor abominations makes you ill and you are unable to get to the bathroom in time to vomit.

    They dye chicks (as in baby chickens, not young women) over here in the spring.

    Those things look like tacky aquarium decor you'd buy from walmart.
