So exciting, thanks for asking! I also went looking at plants while picking up fertilizer for my vegetable garden plants the other day. I'm cheap though, so nothing was on sale even though many things caught my eye. That's a bummer about the soggy soil. You'll have to update what you find at the garden center when you go. Were you the on with succulents, too? Would you mind sharing yours? Which are your favorite?I want to get more plants. I looked at the limited indoor plant selection at the market today but nothing caught my eye. There were some unusual succulents like String of Bananas but the soil was super soggy and I wasn't sure if they would get root rot later. Maybe I'll take a trip to the garden center this weekend if I can get a ride from my friend.
W WillowMarie how are your succulents?
Seems expensive, especially for not coming in a ceramic or fancy planter. Agree with Willowy though, if they are healthy though you made find it worth it. Many places over water succulents, which leads to root rot, and these here look pretty dry and healthy. Plus a couple have babies!W WillowMarie I keep forgetting about the little florist shop across the street from work. I stopped by today and browsed the selection outside the small shop. It was mostly bouquets plus a flat of small succulents:

Some Echeveria and Haworthia Zebra. They look pretty healthy. Is $10 reasonable? The shop is in a expensive urban area so items may be priced higher than exact same plants at a garden center out in the suburbs.
Good luck! Cannot wait to see your plant haul, if you end up getting someI am going to the garden center this weekend. I'm going to try to limit myself to a few air plants and no more than 2 small plants.
Thank you! Bought them off Amazon. That's a good point, supporting local businesses Hope the cat pot is for sale for you!Cute mini cat planters I was going to buy a small succulent from the florist shop today but my Uber driver was arriving minutes after I requested a ride. I'll do it tomorrow and see if the cat planter is for sale and not just a display object. I don't mind supporting a local small business
I've had a couple of air plants over the past year. Many died for some reason. I know one got root rot even though I let it dry upside down after soaking I currently have 3 air plants.
