THE GROCERY STORE HAD ZZ RAVENS!!! 🤩 Only 2, so there wasn't much to choose from. In retrospect I should have zoomed over to the same store a few miles away which has a way better floral dept. 🤔 Oh well! I'm still super pleased! 😁 They also had monstera adansonii and begonia maculata, but I already have both. 😅

@kelsey92 yes, I was very excited to find it. They're very expensive online, but I knew they'd start showing up locally eventually. I've also been looking for ZZ 'zenzi', which is a dwarf version. I have my doubts about ever finding one of those locally, though.

Nice! What store was it? I found mine at Publix.

@savannahssucculentgarden it was at Fry's, which is a Kroger store. We don't have Publix here, but they might be the same parent company, idk. The plant was from Costa Farms.

Ah okay. Idk where you are, but I think Publix is only in the Southeast. Did you hear the Costa Farms Thai Constellation rumor?

@savannahssucculentgarden yes, it's a southeast chain. I'm in Phoenix, AZ. I heard they're opening up the first Publix somewhere waaaaaay out in the suburbs here, but that'll still be at least a year away. Thai constellation: noooooo, are they gonna start propping them?? It's about time! Idk why nobody has done it sooner!

I heard they're gonna start selling them next year! Idk for sure if it's true, but I sure hope so. 🤞🤞

@savannahssucculentgarden NOICE!! I have a plant trade buddy who has an albo variegata and a Thai constellation that she offered to prop for me in the spring, but idk what I could possibly send her that would make it a fair trade! So I'd be happier to buy my own if they're available and sell for reasonable money. 😂
