Too cool. I went into a local supermarket with my girlfriend over the weekend, and we decided to look at the flowers that they had. To my suprise we found 2 phals for $0.99, 1 for $2.00 and the woman discounted another from $15.99 to $1.99 for me.

Apparently someone had dropped a pot and put the orchid back on the shelf. It was a Dendrobium (sp?) that had split in half (it's a red something, has buds that haven't opened yet, I'll try to post the species later), so she picked it up and asked the manager how much. He was like, "How about a $1?". So basically we got 2 Dendrobiums for $1. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Quite surprised, but very happy.
So that's the story of how we got 4 Phals and 2 Dendrobiums for $7.95. Feels like a good start to a small collection.
