    I saw those at our local Lowes and did an immediate double-take. Kinda ugly, really. Maybe if they'd been a little more subtle in the blue instead of knocking your socks off with it.................?

    For real? I still don't like the color of the blue. Interesting, though. Thanks for the links.

    Catch these quotes:
    "It's the rave in Europe and it's pretty much the trend of the future for certain tones in orchids."
    It has been called “the hottest topic,” and trend watchers say “it will stop you in your tracks!”

    Well, evidently my level of vanity for the absurd is underdeveloped. If this is the trend of the future, then we may as well kiss goodbye every species orchid struggling to survive in their rarified habitats thanks to the trend setters with their bogus urban kitch. So, what is wrong with cheap plastic flowers from Hobby Lobby?

    Injecting something with dye is "exclusive patented technology"?
