|Great plants I often see a crested Euphorbia at Home Depot that is tempting but it is grafted which might be alright but they are planted in glazed ceramic pots and there is some very hard material on top of the planting medium so I pass them by. I sometimes find something decent at Lowes or Home Depot if I get there within a few days of when they have received a delivery.|

|The crested Euphorbia you describe are very common. They glue the decorative stones into the pots so they don't fall out.... |
This particular Euphorbia is not common even without the crest, so I was thrilled to get it, and never hesitated although there are not many days I unhesitatingly spend $ 40 on plants!

|I got a really big Euphorbia geroldii (3 gal) at a plant sale this morning for $ 20, a great deal! A couple of other interesting plants, like a Pachypodium gaeyii, and a variegated Aloe. I think my plant-lust has been satisfied for this week|

|Well, I'm a bargain shopper most of the time. Here's the E. flanaganii I got at Lowe's about this time last year on what I call their "rescue table" for .50. Poor little sad thing ... I couldn't resist. Just tugged at my heart strings ♥. |
