I was at Lowe’s today and saw this. I noticed that the plants were in sphagnum instead of just peat or whatever else they use. The only change in the grow instructions was bright light instead of indirect light. It still says to give them high humidity. At least they’re improving.

Amazing. I am just the other side of the mountain, south of Seattle. Our Lowes around here never carry anything like this. Walmart had VFT's a few years back which was when I got in to the game.

The VFT I got at Lowes a few months ago was the same packaging, also in sphagnum, but quite wilted and extremely skinny and indoors. It did recover quite well after repotting in a much bigger pot in LFSM, and giving it full sun and decent water. Those look to be in a bit better condition.... for the moment.
