Free For Postage or Pick-up- No Exchange

I have 4 large alocasis macrorrhiza cuttings if you want them. These are 2-3 inch stem cuttings about 3-4 ft long. I trimmed them back for winter. Yes, these will root very easily and you will have a mature plant next summer. They all have one leaf left on the stem. If I mail them for postage I will remove the leaf but leave the green stem with the next leaf bud in it. I'll put them in a long triangle priority mail box. I'll mail them and you can refund postage. Get back to me before 10/19/07. I don't have room in the greenhouse for these. - Terry

Yes, they will live outdoors. This first winter they will need to be indoors while rooting but next April you can transplant outside. I have one outside the greenhouse which I trim back ech Fall and cover with a large garbage can filled with leaves for protection from the cold. Every few years I cut it back almost to the ground because it gets too large for the garbage can to cover.

Jill, no one else has shown interest so all four are yours if you want them. I already have them potted in a 5 gallon bucket so they are good for your basement or sun room for this winter. I am going to Tarrant on Sunday, Oct. 21. If you would like to meet me there to pick up the bucket of EEs we can make arrangements. Let me know. Send me an email - Terry
