It is a chinchilla plant - sorry, don't know the botanical name. They are kinda hard to take care of (they are fussy) - you can usually find one at a flower shop and around here anyways at the grocery store. Usually, they have them in the fall. If you can keep a pink polka dot plant alive then you can keep a chinchilla alive.

thanks everyone for helping me.....

It serves me right for not getting it when I saw it & when I went back to the nursery they were out.

auntiem I did a google image search for the chinchilla plant (of course there were only 2 images) I think that may be in the same species I will ask at my nursery for plants in that same family, thanks!!

I read in my You Grow Girl book about starting seeds in Jell-O so I'm trying it today!

By the by, does anyone know of a plant figurine (my grandma had a couple) that looks like a smiling, fat green worm or caterpillar?  I tried googling it, but could not find one.  I don't think it waters or anything, just sits in the pot, looking cute.

Do you mean the little clay worms that change color to indicate that you need to water? They have them at my fave nursery - next time I go I'll see if I can get the name of the company.

It's the LAST DAY to sign up!  Signups end at midnight MST, or if i'm in bed by then, they'll be finished tomorrow around 5 or so when i get home from work.


On another note, I photocopied an article from the newest issue of RealSimple about having a moon/evening garden-- pretty sweet.
