    and yet ANOTHER Lowe's rescue...

    I bought 8 small pots of VFTs at Lowe's yesterday that were on the "clearance" shelves for $1 each. Each little pot has +/- 40 individual plants of all sizes. I'm only through dividing up 3 so far: big ones into separate small pots, small ones into a flat, and a few, well, into the compost bin.
    Its a Venutian invasion!!!

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    It's amazing how congested those little cubes can get. Just check out Presto's old post!

    I don't know how exactly the production nurseries do it: mass tissue culture I'm guessing but then growing them out so fast? poor things probably never see actual sunlight unless they get lucky enough to be placed in a store window. I've got these new rescues outside in the cold/shade to keep them in dormancy while I divide them up.
    Well, we won't have any shortage of VFTs at the SF Bot. Garden's plant sales this coming year!

    You have to go to the organic garden center
    to find some of them
    "Free Range" VFT's!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
