Yep, just like the odds of winning big, in a lottery, you just might be the "one in 50 million" to hit the jackpot, with a relatively low investment. However, without a knowledge of plant types, and their growing requirements, the odds of getting what you really wanted, and/or know how to grow, are low.
OTOH, you could stumble upon something you didn't really want to buy, and end up liking what you got (like a Cracker Jack prize).
If not, though, you'll wind up having spent money, even if just a quarter, that could have been spent better (not wasted), and more wisely on something else.
A crap shoot, to be sure!
This is why folks are advised not to grocery shop, when hungry. You'll end up buying/spending way more than what you intended, for things you didn't even want, or need.
