I went to my local Home Depot the other day and found this beauty. It was flowering nicely and the base is super fat (see my hand for) and it was only $14 (is that reasonable?)! I don't think it is an arabicum because of the flower, but its still good to me! I didn't see any grafted area, so it may be from seed? Can't wait for it to grow up!
