HAVE: Cacti for trade

farmerted361(zone 6 Western NY)August 1, 2006

I have the following to trade:

Hatiora gaertneri Synonym: Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri (Easter Cactus) Lovely Deep Orange star burst shaped flowers. Looks like Christmas cactus:)

Rooted pups of an Echinopsis sp. It gets two to three feet tall or so there abouts, and has humongous light pink trumpet shaped flowers, hence the nickname Bloomis Humongous.

3 rooted Mammillaria elongata 'Copper King'

2 rooted Mammillaria mainiae 'Counter-Clockwise Fishhook'

Dark Blackish Green with Burgundy spines, Really Nice color contrast! Flowers readily all summer long:)

1 rooted Echinopsis multiplex pup

3 Rhipsalis crispata cuttings

Thanks, farmerted361:)

I have the following left for trade:

2 rooted Mammillaria mainiae 'Counter-Clockwise Fishhook'
Dark Blackish Green with Burgundy spines, Really Nice color contrast! Flowers readily all summer long

1 rooted Echinopsis multiplex pup

3 Rhipsalis crispata cuttings

1 cutting of Hatiora gaertneri Synonym: Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri (Easter Cactus) Lovely Deep Orange star burst shaped flowers. Looks like Christmas cactus:)

Sorry the pups of,
Echinopsis var. paramount hybrid 'Los Angeles'
aka: Bloomis Humungus are gone:(

If you don't have what I'm looking for I can send these for postage.
2 rooted Pediocactus simpsonii
one is 4inches+ ? the other is 2inches

This is my policy to prepare plants for shipment:

To devide and or take cuttings, in advance of a trade to be listed. I place divisions aside in a pot of their own keeping them on the dry side for shipping. Cuttings are left out to callus off in a timely fashion before being offered up for trade.

Shipping:

I only ship Priority Mail, in a mailing box with the roots wrapped with a slightly damp paper towel and covered with a plastic bag.

Notice:

Some plants are shipped dry root to prevent rotting, not all plants can be shipped with damp roots.

The rest of the plant will be wrapped in newspaper, and if I have it bubble-wrap to fill in the packing if not then it will be newspaper. A label will be placed on the box stating: "LIVE PLANT(S) AND OR SEEDS HAND CANCEL, PLEASE HANDEL WITH CARE." I ship out on Mondays only in late mornings or early afternoons unless otherwise requested. Track & Confirm numbers (info) will be agreed to be provided upon request prior to the closing of the trade.

Thanks, farmerted361

LOL -- I don't even recognize most of the names you posted! You must be a very dedicated collector.

The ones you will send for postage sound great if you have a mind, but don't go to any extra trouble. I have received sansv. for postage, so can give you a reference if you wish.

Some people believe if you mark a box "fragile" it will be deliberately squished. I haven't received plants marked in any way, so this would be a good test of the mail system.

warm regards,
pb
