Hello all!

I'm very interested in Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii' or 'Tandarra Red', and Musa 'Dwarf Cavendish'. I don't have any bananas to offer, but I do have many other goodies:) In addition to my swap lists, I have these tropicals ready to trade:

Abutilon 'Souvenir de Bonn' - fresh cutting

Begonia 'Sophia'

Breynia nivosa - Hawaiian snowbush - fresh cutting

Bromeliad/ Neoregelia - this is my best guess at what I have; behaves like a gigantic jew, colors up purplish in the sun.

Brugmansia 'Snowbank' - fresh cutting

Davallia trichomanoides - Squirrel's foot fern

Euphorbia 'Breathless Blush'

Euphorbia/ pedilanthus tithymaloides - variegated Devil's backbone

Ficus elastica Tricolor

Gibasis geniculata - Tahitian Bridal Veil

Haemaria discolor - Jewel orchid, acts more like a jew than an orchid!

Hoya carnosa (I believe) rooted cutting

Oleander, red - fresh cuttings

Passiflora caerulea - rooted cutting

Pellonia 'Watermelon'

Peperomia obtusifolia, fresh cutting

Philodendron erubescens - black leaved variety

Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'

Scindapsus pictus argyraeus - Silver pothos

Seemania sylvatica 'Bolivian Sunset' - Hardy Gloxinia

Tradescantia sillamontana - Fuzzy jew

Tradescantia fluminensis variegata

Tradescantia zebrina

Tender Sedums and succulents:

Aptenia cordifolia variegata

Bryophyllum - variety that has purple speckled leaves and blooms great big chandeliers of peachy bells.

Sanseveria 'Coppertone'

Variety of sedums, graptosedum, haworthia, etc

I have a high color mini pup : http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/1669/dwarf-variegated-banana.php


which is considered a super dwarf cavendish.

I don't know if you are looking for just a regular dwarf cavendish or a super dwarf cavendish. I also have a dwarf cavendish however I do not have any pups off of that one at present - you'd have to wait until summer of next year to see if it will give pups if you are only interested in "dwarf cavendish".

The mother plant seems to be less than 6 inches tall right now and the pup is a little smaller. I just brought it inside due to freezing weather outside - we just got a cold front this afternoon.

I am interested in 2 things you have :
stevia plant (well rooted and strong as this plant seems to be delicate)
saponaria seeds

let me know via email if you are interested in trading.
