Great deal- just for the pots alone. I am way out of your zone so hopefully someone will chime in on the plants. Cyclamen kind of like cool,indirect light and go dormant with heat. The Prince of Orange I know that at least one member here has that.I think it is Purple but could be wrong. I had a Reiger but pretty positive it has bit the dust- brought it in for the winter-didn't make it.

RE: yay! scored at home depot!

Excellent! Only the philo would work for me, but would be worth the trip. I have Philodendron 'Moonlight' and just love it. It sailed through winter without any problem at all - not even a hint of frostbite from the several hard freezes we have had. I may swing into THD in the next few days. Thank you!

Cyclamen were spider mite magnets back in the 80's. I don't know if they still are. They love the cold weather, around 50 degrees is perfect for them.
