wanted: help! house sitter killed collection!

sandybeach(z9 CA)September 11, 2006


Went on 2 one-week "mini-vacations" this summer. First one the house sitters kept the animals and the plants alive. Second one, we took the animals and I came back to a bunch of dead plants!!! The water-loving ones were dried out, and the dry ones were over-watered and rotting. Ugh. If anyone has any of the below - I would gladly trade for them. Please contact me with your 'wants list' as I have more to trade than what is listed on my 'trade list'.

Thanks in advance,


Plants lost to house sitters:

Braunsia apiculata,

Echinocereus reichenbachii (lace cactus),

Epithelantha micromeris (button cactus),

Escobaria robbinsorum,

Faucaria albidens,

Faucaria felina,

Faucaria paucidens,

Faucaria tuberculosa varigated form,

Lavendin 'alba' (white lavender),

Lavendin 'Cathy blanc' (compact white lavender).

Lavender 'Hidcote pink' (pink lavender),

Lavender 'Kew red' (dark pink/red lavender),

Mammillaria boscasana v. multilanata (powder puff cactus),

Mammillaria duwei,

Neoporteria nidus,

Origanum libanoticum (hops oregano),

Oregano 'Kents Beauty',

Trichodiadema bulbosum,

Turbinicarpus valdezianus,
