Nancy, the Lowe's I work at didn't have anything woroth looking at for over a year. And then, BINGO, we've got cactus and succulents coming out our ears! I don't know for sure, but I think it's management who makes the decisions about what plants to get.

I don't understand why the Lowe's and HD near me do not have all the great plants that people in other areas of Phoenix find. I went to both places today and they had nothing of interest at all. The cacti and succulents look like they had been there for months (I'm sure they had!)

I got this little cutie at Lowes yesterday. Mammillaria zeilmanniana.

By the way. I have several aloes and the little Firebird Aloe is one of my absolute favorites, so I hope those of you looking for it can find it..

I bought another lot of 12 sempervivums and she had labels with them but by the time I got them the labels were no longer with the plants. If I give you the plant names and take pictures of the plants, do you think someone could help me place the correct label to the correct plant? I know it's a lot to ask, but I need all the help I can get.

Thank you Grant. I love yours too. Your flowers look bigger than mine.

Have any of you grown Epiphyllum's from seed? I ordered some seeds of the Epiphyllum  "Curly Locks". The plant is gorgeous but I couldn't find cuttings or plants of it anywhere so I ordered seeds. Can anyone tell me about how long it takes the seeds to sprout on Epiphyllum's? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I also bought a lot of 36 small succulents which of course came with no labels. Would anyone be willing to help me identify them if possible? I don't mind plants with no labels, but I really want to keep track of what I have.

LOVE your Aloe 'Firebird' Debra, thanks so much for sharing it with us.  It looks like youv'e got several weeks of blooms ahead of you.  Great stuff!  Thanks for sharing it!  Take care all!

Thanks Grant and Debra! I'll be on the lookout for one at HD and Lowe's. At least they are close to my house and easy to get to!

My turn to show off my Firebird Aloe. :) For those of you still looking, I got this one at Lowes a few months ago.

Hiya Nancy and all, I got the 'Firebird' aloe at one of the local Home Depots in January of 2011 (according to the label I wrote and put in the pot).  Take care and happy gardening all!

"Did you know? . . . The Cashew nut grows on a large tree, Its pod is at the end of a juicy fruit, encased in a softer pod. When the pod is roasted, the nut is removed and ready to eat."

"I'm sure what this is.  It's not a hibiscus for it doesn't flower. It is more like a crouton. The leaves are the beauty."

"Thankfully, winter was warm for us this year. We had only a few days in the 50's for the high, and no lower that 40 for low, so the plants fared well."
