    Great bargain. Hope they do well for you.
    No, you don't, Angela. Oklahoma may have its good points, but you live in Paradise and we need you to stay there!

    Well... Today I got 10 more for one dollar each again!! they are dendrobiums and a couple of cattleyas...The guy wanted me to buy a lot more but I said NO!! please I have way too many! hahahaha
    This is my plan: I've been unemployed for long, long time and there's no chance that I will be employed in the near future...But I have to pay a loan that I got in order to pay for the cataract surgery I had back in February. As soon as I get some of this plants strong and healthy, I'm gonna start selling them. I know it's not gonna give me enough to cover everything, but at least it will help me a little.

    The guy in charge says he really cares for the poor plants... but I think he only wants to get at least a few bucks so he doesn't get in trouble for throwing away too many plants at once! fine with me! hehe Nobody buys them when they have no flowers anyway!

    They are actually 9 with the 2 phals on the back, I paid 5 bucks for them even when they still have all their flowers, and it's because the two phals were in a ceramic pot that fell from the shelf and was broken. (They are in excellent condition, btw!)

    Here's a picture of the new ones.

    Good for you!! They look to be in good shape so with a little TLC they will be good to go to market. I wish you every success.
    Wish I were nearby I would buy some off you.
    Good Luck.
