I was at the grocery store yesterday and found this plant on sale really cheap. It looks familiar but for the life of me I cannot place the name in my dead brain.
Of course with my life as it is this plant comes with a story. When I saw it I thought it had two of my wants color leaves and big. My other need to have when I buy plants is fragrance. Two out of three drew me to the plant.
I always do self checkout. The bar code of course was on the side of the pot instead of the bottom to scan the plant. I turned the plant on its side and bucket of water went everywhere. The scanner made a frying noise and lights went out and I swear I saw a spark. Clerk runs over and ask me what happened and saw the water and pulled me away. I am standing on the side with my purchases and credit card in my hand waiting to find out what to do next, as she ran to get the manager.
Manager comes over and looks at the situation. Next he starts to pack up my groceries and putting them in the basket. Picks the plant up and put it in my buggy and said "NO CHARGE" I am slow I said where do I pay. He looked at me like are you out of your mind lady, and said very slow NOOOO CHARGEEEE LOL
The plant was in a pot in pot and evidently they had watered it and there was bucket of water in the nursery pot with no drainge. By both of them being black I did not notice that it was a pot in pot situation.
OK that is my long story here is the plant. I know it is common and someone has to be able to name it quick.
