Ridiculous price for silk plants

I got 2 small silk plants for one of my 2.5 gallons. They were $4.99 a piece

Some people buy the silk plants from art stores and the dollar tree, boil them for a while to get out any dye that might bleed, and use those. I've thought about using those because it's cheaper, but I'm paranoid about that stuff lol

I don't trust the things that aren't tested for aquariums. :/

They are the new kind from petco, yes? I noticed when they switched over their silk plants they also jacked up the prices
