    i was writing out a check for my plants at the greenhouse this weekend and got to wondering just how much do you all spend on plants? not all the lighting and such but just on plants? i walked out of a greenhouse this weekend with $110 in plants, one nep and 3 orchids. i also purchased an orchid for $15 at Home Depot because Darla wanted it and $10 on an ant plant at a different nursery. thats $135 in one weekend on plants(before tax), i also picked up a small bale of Chilean LFS, some coconut fiber and a few pots. i prolly spend $25 or so in postage a month either because of trades or SASE's. and prolly another $50-$100 on ebay for various plants, mainly orchids a month. the $115 i spent at the one place is a lil unusual for me but purchases in the $50 range isnt uncommon. so how bad are you?

    Well... a trip to the greenhouse can sometimes mean $60-$80...but that might include supplies. I don't do that very often these as I have no money. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    For buying plants, eBay is often MUCH cheaper. You can find just about anything there.

    But I have to rein myself in and not spend too much on plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Just the maintenance supplies cost enough.

    Maybe 20.00 a year? I rarely buy plants but if someone offers petiolaris Drosera I am usually in. I actually spend more on non-CP plants, but even then it is usually Valerie who pays for the infrequent plant from Walmart or whatever.

    yeah Tamlin but you have looooooooooooooottttttttttsss of interesting stuff to trade. im still building my collection. although i should have some real neat Utrics to trade after awhile now. i do tend to spend alot of $ on orchids. Darla asked me to try growing them when we first started going out after she learned i had a green thumb over 2 years ago. well im hooked on those now along with my CPs. most of my $ spent on CPs is either on Neps or postage on trades. i think ive only actually paid for one Utric. the ones Tim sent me i think fall under S&H. oh well better on plants than some other things that i used to spend money on.

    well dakota water softening gives away free reverse-osmosis water on tusedays, so watercosts wont be a big deal.'


    Ok shure i had the money to get plants and stuff but i blew it. Well i had been saving it for while, and i had 70$. But then we went to a art convention or whatever and i got carried away...
    that makes no logic
