Mind boggled, "new plants" for sale

So, I work in a hardware store and we got in a new shipment from our cactus /succulents vendor... these are some of what we got....

I think my brain died a little... they are PAINTED neon colors. Seriously, kosmik kaktus? I thought the straw flowers hit glued on the cacti was bad enough.

Anyone else have any thoughts on these? Are you as stumped as I am? :screwy:

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

Somebody thought of it, somebody pitched it, somebody funded it and sold it to somebody else.

Makes me smile.

I know! It's like they raided the paint isle at a craft store and picked terrier favorite colors for a rave... when you get close up there are gobs of paint in sections, and paint missing, oh they look so awful

I bet they die from lack of photosynthesis after a little while...

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

God bless those poor plants...their lives given in colored vane.

I bet they'll sell like hot cakes. There's plenty of people with bad taste to buy neon plants.

Possible trend for the aquatic world

They look pretty disgusting to me. Doesn't appear that they'll last long.

"Kosmik Kactus" has got to be the worst failure at a clever marketing name ever. lol
