What was bugging me was: Why call Lowe's and have them order a plant, especially when you know PFT carries it and it will be of a much higher quality?
Some people just have to learn the hard way, I guess.
I gotta say I saw a couple things that annoyed me in this thread.
1) Talking about other local vendors is cool, but to encourage a person to call lowes and order a plant they normally don't carry to me is just rude, Phil and Jeff could offer the same service, better I might add, and by encouraging someone to do that, you are diverting a potential revenue stream from them. It's not against their rules, but I think it's rude none the less. Just because you don't break a rule in doing something does not make it right.
Also, why is it to bad Loews can't compete with **********? You have something against **********? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
Finally, while I don't condone people just rolling over and playing dead when they think they are right, I would ask that when a moderator speaks his/her feelings on a topic, that the discussion stay a discussion, and not turn argumentative. Not saying that happened here, but Phil and Jeff have entrusted their moderators with a level of responsibility, and we all tend to be over protective sometimes... regardless, respect your mods opinions, what does it possibly hurt?
Sorry, sorry, a million times( you make me feel like I've angered the gods). I probably shouldn't have sugdested Lowes, but all I'm saying is they have nice plants( in my experience); and yes, it probably would be better to order from this site. Around here( Illinois) Lowse has pretty good service, and I just mean that as a local provider, they are pretty good. Sorry again( perhaps I should order a plant from here).
heres my personal experience
no arguemt over this ka?
i diss lowes cus they only sell vft's and cobra lilys in seperate pots, sundews and butterworts are only available in the terrarium thingy, and they DONT SELL SUPER THRIVE OR NEPENTHES!!!
thats why i dis lowes and i order from petfly trap:)
but all in all lowes has good stuff like potting mixes and other stuff
Lowe's wouldn't sell Superthrive or Nepenthes anyhow because all in all they after all ARE a HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE! Not a CP nursery! :cheesy:
so why does they sell em at other places?
and same with homedepot, here they dotn sell superthrive or nepenthes, and NO CPS WHAT SO EVER
just vfts once in a WHILE
i always see peeps sayign they get neps fromn there ad stuff
Different stores in different locations carry different products along with different people supplying the different products for the different stores in the different locations. :cheesy: :biggrin:
