I picked up a nep at Lowe's yesterday, they aren't common there. He had been sitting there for abot 3 weeks and in surprisingly good health.
I was just curious about stores selling CPs I wouldn't actually buy one from a hardware store. Not saying that Home Depot or Lowes or even WalMart are bad places they're some of my favorite stores. They have nice plants (other than CPs) but I don't think the average garden center employee would know how to properly care for a CP.
I agree ********** does sell good plants. I have a spatulata that I'm very happy with, it's a very cute plant.
BTW I do live in LA county, Mid Cities area, Downey to be exact. Thanx
