hi everyone,today i was at HD and they had a section of plants for sale for anywhere for $1.00,$2.00,$4.00 up to $7.50. i scored 3 plants:a yellow flowering reiger begonia with a ceramic pot,a pretty pink cyclamen with a ceramic pot,and a large philo,prince of orange.im so excited about the philo,because ive wanted one for a while.it's been either hard to find this one,or the price was too much.im happy to bring these three home.they are in decent shape.just needd to clean them up a little,checked for bugs,they had none.just wanted to let you all know!

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.

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.
