I think the same thing when i saw it. I grab and pay, and put it in my car then went back inside and look around at the clearance area to make sure there is nothing more.

Those seedlings are from Mr. ko 's new hybrid seeds. Very disappointed on germination rate though; i would say 45%. I contacted them and ask how old their seeds were and they ask so many proof the condition and place where i have them. Told them I wasn't asking for replacement of the seeds since I paid $50.

Hey! Cora, it's OK!! I've spent a LOT more at times!! Wait until a photo gets you and you spend $75 on a tiny miniature arabicum that has only a few pink flowers occasionally!

You will have SO MUCH FUN seeing what the blooms look like! and a few will be really fabulous, unique, and only yours, I promise!

Be happy!
