Mind boggled, "new plants" for sale

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:

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

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
