Went to the local weekend Flea Market to sell some of my Adeniums. I visited two other plant vendors that had these to offer.

By the way, I recommend that you do NOT plant that particular Sansevieria (S. hyacinthoides) (2nd post, 1st picture). It can be hideously invasive.

Hilarious! Hilarious! There's a reason behind my madness...collecting pretty stock for grafting. nodding

Have not tried grafting yet, but I'd like to start propagating stock now. Whistling

We don't have any flea markets where plants are sold. It looks like you could find a lot of wonderful things there. I would have purchased some I saw in your pics. Thanks for sharing, KD!

I went to a great Plant Sale today, the weather was incredibly pleasant and we met up with a number of friends; had a lovely day. I bought a Cubanola and a blooming Azalea. The Cubanola will go in the new pot I scored yesterday. I can tell you this was THE BEST way to spend Valentine's day!!

Hetty, a Cubanola plant looks quite pretty with the hanging flowers.

Happy Valentine's everyone...hope you all scored great too. My hubs gave me 10 large lobster tails for my Valentine present. Lovey dubby Hilarious! They cost less than $8 each. nodding
