While I have nothing to trade, I must agree wholeheartedly that in gets very little traffic. Don't understand why this is because I would thing this would be a perfect place to trade/purchase plants from a central location. Either people don't realize it is there, don't know how to use it or haven't a clue. I've had several items listed that I would love to trade/purchase and never hear from anyone. Now I find I have an extra Dorstenia gigas and would love to sell it but nary an inquiry. Good luck

Its not just the cactus succulent exchange that is dead. I have been watching the hoya and houseplant for the last couple of months. They are dead also. Maybe there aren't many people working on collections in this rotten economy.

On a happy note, I have had two traders email me. I am so excited. i love new plants. Good luck with your xtra plants also.

I've been wondering the same thing also about the trading forum..I would love to buy from people on here in hopes of finding succulents I can't find anywhere else (can't really trade cause my collection isn't quite big enough yet)..it's just too bad...

I don't really have anything on your list...my pregnant onions has alot of babies but they're small (but they do grow fast) and I have a nice size "louise" easter cactus, but I don't have any rooted cuttings from it right now...

I would love to buy bulb and caudex succulent plants if anyone has any LOL...

Have your onion babies dropped off? I would love to trade with a new collecter for some onion babies and a couple of Louise cuttings. Do I have anything you desire?

If you want to buy caudex / pachycaul plants why not order them from nurseries such as Miles2go or Starr Nursery?

Bulbs, too - dormant-for-four-months- Albucas sitting unseen in the pot (from Starr Nursery) are sprouting on up. They're out there for purchase from reputable folks.

Perhaps the Exchange Forum is slow because it's too early to start shipping for swaps or trades for at least half the US.

I see you're in Mtn Desert UT. I'm in NYC it was 43 degrees this morning, too cold to ship anything anywhere.

Perhaps if you wait a bit more into Spring & posted at the Exchange Forum where this belongs, others will respond, or at least respond enough to tell you they need at least another month before they can swap (I sent just such an EM to a 3-way swap last week). A bit of patience is in order here pls.

Flower Pot Tipper,

Sorry, but we're really not allowed to sell, pls. read the Special Instructions for Exchanges to familiarize yourself with what is permitted.

hmmmmm, the houseplant exchange only has one new exchange listed in 2012, hoya also only one new exchange in 2012, the cactus looks almost red hot with a dozen or so listings for 2012. It has been my experience in years gone past that the southern gardeners started listing trades in feb. Many were finished trading by may. perhaps times have changed.

the onion babies haven't dropped off yet, but they should very soon...but there are a bunch of babies on the bottom on the onions that I can't see...I'll check later on today to see if they're ready...I do have a medium-small pregnant onion I would probably be willing to part with for a trade..it has two babies on it right now...how about you e-mail me and I could end you pictures of it and the Louise plants...but I wouldn't be able to send them for atleast a week or so because I have Pneumonia right now...I can barely move, so if I don't answer right away, don't think I've forgotten..I'll take a look at your trade list and see what I might want...

My email is in my profile.


I'll check out those places you mentioned..I just want good plants at reasonable prices...thank you.
