I brought along my old point-and-shoot camera and took some pictures. Molbak's was pretty barren, compared to how it was just before Christmas. I picked out some pretty Hellebores, and since they also had Heucheras on sale, I bought a couple of them too. Then I headed inside to the warmth.
|According to the tag, this hanging plant is Lipstick plant. I can see why it's called that.|
|The red flowers and glossy leaves are very attractive.|
|These pieces of driftwood for hanging air plants are cute|
|You can use them for Bromelaids too!|
They had some enormous cacti!
|That one on the right is glass.|
And some little ones too.
I've been looking for a while for a very ruffled Echeveria, and they had several, but I already had Hellebores and Heucheras and a couple of Cyclamen coum in my cart. Plus, I know exactly where the Hellebores and Heucheras are going. A new Echeveria would have to share a very crowded spot in front of my only South-facing window right now, with lots of other plants being overwintered.

The Agaves were tempting.
|Agave desmettiana 'Variegata'|
|Agave 'Blue Flame' doesn't look very blue|
|They also had an enormous glass Agave.|
So what did I buy for my first plant purchases of 2013?
