So I came to work at the Depot on Saturday. My head cashier comes up to me and says, "Guess what came in!" I had no idea. Then she shows me a display of VFT's, 1/3 were gone already. All season long they don't get any and now that it's at the end of the growing season, they bring them in. Today I was cashiering in Garden and one of the associates there, that knows that I'm into CP's, asks me if I'd seen the plants. I mentioned the VFT's that I saw and she said that they also got in.... and sold out of something else. So I ask if they got in cobra lilys. She didn't know what that was and I drew a picture. Then she drew a picture. They got in cobra lilys and I missed it! The think is, nearly all of our plants don't belong to Home Depot. What comes in is dictated by our suppliers. They own them and they are on consignment. So I asked that she make a suggestion to the supplier. In theory, if something "sells like hotcakes", then it makes sense to bring in another batch. I just wished I had known about them when they were fresh off the truck.
They also brought in Lithops.
