I'm not sure how it is nationwide, but here in my city I've been in two different Lowe's and one had large tropicals (corn plants, majesty palms, stuff like that) that were somewhat distressed on sale for $1 a pot, and the other had smaller tropicals (ferns, dieffenbachia, lots of other stuff) that were somewhat distressed for 25 cents a pot.

I bought a couple of corn plants for my house, 2 palms for the office where there is plenty of light, and some other stuff at the bigger plant sale last week, and today I bought 19 plants for a little over 5 dollars at the small plant sale. Heck, if even one of these lives through the winter I'll have broken even, and if not well I'll have the pots to grow all my seeds from swaps in and that'll make me feel better.

lots of the big box stores are having sales right now because they don't have space to take care of their tropicals.

i got 85 succulents at wallyworld on monday, for 10 cents a piece! that is why i "liberated" so many of them! laugh laugh

My box stores here NEVER EVER reduce the price of their plants!!!
They all say that they send the empty pots back to the growers and get credit, so they refuse to reduce the plants and sell them to willing customers - crazy!!!
