    Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    So I saw MidnightSkies' post about having found some cobra lillies at Lowe's and I thought to myself "Self, you really want a cobra lilly, and you have a local Lowe's, why don't you call them and see if they have some too?" So I called... and they had just sold out! And weren't getting any more! *cries* If I'd just called a few days ago I'd have lovely cobra lillies, and now I don't.

    It makes me sad.

    OK, you're instantly like, one of my favorite people here now. My favorite physics professor said that all the time during his lectures and it never got old.

    Don't you hate just missing stuff? I drove all the way to another town tonight to get 2" seedling pots and thedoors were open but they had technically closed 10 mins earlier. Wouldn't let me buy them even with cash and no desire for change or a receipt.

    Sorry about that Blades. Don't worry too much... Lowes cobras usually aren't worth drooling over.
    And are you sure they knew what you were talking about when you talked on the phone?

    Swords- That's really crappy business. I wouldn't go back there if I was you. (But if you're anything like me, you'll go back there because they have cheap prices and/or are the closest place... even if it is crap business.)

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Well, I wasn't expecting prime specimens, but a Lowe's plant would be better than what I have now, which is no plant at all.

    Even if you had gotten one given the condition of most "death cube" plants you'd probably be without one again in a few weeks...

    Odds are they thought you were asking about Easter Lilies which is probably why they won't be getting more.

    Not every employee is a complete idiot. I did specify when I asked that it was a carnivorous plant.
