Distressed Plant Rack Finds
One of my go-to places for houseplants has been the "distressed" plant rack at Lowe's. I'm usually in there for something else, and decide to check out the sale racks, and end up making an impulse buy. Interestingly, a couple of these have been my longest-tenured plants.
The most recent purchase was a hypoestes. One of the first things I did when I started packing for my recent move (about two months ago) was to re-pot some plants in need of fresh soil and plant some cuttings. Of course, I ended up at Lowe's to get soil and pots, and there it was...dead looking and 75 cents. The cashier looked at me like I was nuts. However, after a generous trimming and re-potting, it's now doing gangbusters! I'd like for it to get a little bushier, but considering I once thought the odds were against its survival, I'm pretty happy.
