    Hi all

    They do look like they could use a good dose of sunshine to brighten the colours somewhat, but it looks like a good buy. Good luck with them.

    Cheers

    Either my Lowes stopped selling Cps entirely or they are (in) conveniently out of stock whenever I check...

    CP availability depends entirely on the managers of each store or nursery, the nursery that I got my S. flava from hasn't had any CPs in two years. I don't like to sign the death warrant to have my nurseries do special orders because they usually will order more than one plant when one is often what I want. But if you're concerned that there aren't any CPs, just ask a manager and usually (no guarantees though) they'll order some.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!

    Unfortunately, the plants were put in the shaded part of the store. I can tell one flava is a copper top, still had the copper color but fading. I went to Lowes again and most of the plants are drying up. The S. minors that they still have are holding up, but give it a few more days & they will be dead too.

    What a shame... and they ere beautiful.

    What a waste.

    Hi HK

    Ahhh, I always feel the same when I pass these poor dying plants in shops and often buy some to save them from certain death, but I do have a dichotomy about this because by buying them I am giving them a better life but also condemning countless thousands more to death because the very act of my purchase will signal to the shop that they are popular and they should get more, so the circle continues. I suppose we should only buy from specialist nurseries, but even this wouldn’t eradicate the practise as there will always be people who know nothing about the plants requirements buying them.

    But at least now you have them you can look after them, watch them getting bigger, stronger and more colourful, a voyage of discovery, it always makes you feel good about it. Looks kike they will give you some years of pleasure.

    Cheers
    Steve
