A Very Hard Decision.

Category: Fun | Posted: Wed Nov 24, 2010 5:15 am

Yesterday while I was heading home from college, I decided to stop by the local plant nursery because its getting close to winter and they usually have pretty good deals on plants. I made my way over to the sale rack and saw that they had a lot of things on sale for 50% off and some things for buy one get one free. Needless to say I was very excited. I immediately started looking around. My eyes caught a Tasmanian Tree Fern (Dicksonia antarctica) which I have been noticing since summer, but now was 50% off. I was about to grab it and go, but then I saw yet another deal that I couldn't pass up. I saw some pitcher plants that were on sale for buy one get one free. They were Sarracenia 'Judith Hindle' and unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the other one, but maybe either Sarracenia 'Jessica' or Sarracenia 'Judy.' So now I was faced with a very hard decision, a fern or two pitcher plants. I eventually decided on the fern because I have two Nepenthes which are not doing that well and I usually have better luck with ferns. So while it was a hard decision, it was probably the best one for me, but who knows I still might go back and see if I can get those pitcher plants. :P

I am with you. I too usually do better with ferns than pitcher plants, although.....who can resist a deal?

Good for you Jon! What a treat! I'm glad you found those bargains -- we know you love ferns. Did you take them home with you for the holiday?

Frank - It really was. I walked around the nursery a couple of times before I made my decision.

Jewell - That's true and I still might get the pitcher plants.

Daisybeans - I most certainly did and now it has a nice new home where it can grow as big as it wants.
