    My vote is probably for the latter. Maybe I was just talking to some bum with a sharpie... lol.

    well
    the manager usually closes them out when they start to look like they are dying
    like
    50% off of them
    but since we bought a near flatbed size crate of em(every last one that was there), he gave us 75% off

    the plants didnt need to be acclimated, they were all outside at lowes.
    I'm pretty sure he's talking about acclimating them to lower humidity from being in the cubes.

    That is a great score! Look at all those plants.

    My all-time record for a Lowes rescue was getting $504 worth of half-dead plants for $5. The manager told me I could have all the plants I wanted off of the two sale racks. I loaded up a shopping cart with orchids and all kinds of plants. Unfortunately, no CPs. Poor clerk had to ring up every plant and get the total and then discount it to $5. I think I pissed off the people behind me in line.

    I always remember the manager's name...Waughn Vaughn. lol What a great name!

    Yay for rescued CPs!

    Well
    its been a little over a month
    ill post pictures soon
    most of the plants of sprung right back up
    whoever said D. Adelae couldnt be grown in full sun.....rofl. a few came back from the roots and they look pretty amazing.
    most of my sarracenia are perking up quite a bit, starting to send out some nice new growth.
    the VFTs have all pretty much sprung back nicely. a couple are flowering.
    the 2 neps are still iffy.
    one is dead, it came with a dead growthpoint, it was pretty much a lost cause the moment i opened the case and saw it.
    the other is doing all right, enjoying partial to full sun depending on the weather....
    ick. washington weather lol.
