    Woah. That's a lot of cubes (wouldn't it be more appropriate to call them Lowe's rectangular prisms of death ?).

    The manager would rather recoup some losses on plants that won't sell to the general population.

    edit: did you wet your peat/perlite before potting? It looks dry, and will be a nightmare to try and water and soak into the peat.

    i watered it slightly, didnt want to do it too much because it rains here sooo much. given that they were in pots that were drenched, i figured id let them dry a little until it rains sometime today. i just checked em this morning, they seem more dry than yesterday, yesterday they were all.....soaked....kinda like a soggy lettuce leaf.
    since it rains here all the time, they will be fine im sure.

    I'm not sure what's different from the Lowes here to the Lowes there.. but my wife is a manager at lowes and they do not discount the CPs. The vendor they get them from takes dead plants back and gives full credit. so either there is a different agreement between your lowes and the vendor, or your manager doesn't know any better So to those others of you thinking to go give it a try... don't be mad if they say no.

    PS- I don't really see why they should have been discounted... They all seem to be in alright health to me

    I was going to say, I've tried to finagle some discounts on those cubes and was blown off by the manager. That's why I told Kristoff he musta had some great bargaining skills!
