NEW: House Plant Swap

kboyetteMarch 20, 2007

I would like to host a house plant swap. I will take sign ups until March 30. Then I will email everyone their partners the first week in April. Packages will need to be mailed by April 16. Please be able to send 3 to 4 plants. You may send more if you have more to send but you must send at least 3. Maybe this way everyone will be able to play.

I have no idea what is going on with this swap but if it has not started and there is room for one more, I have several plants that need to find new homes. I would volunteer to be the back up in the event someone "forgets" to send a box as I really do not need anymore house plants or there will not be room for the people and animals. Let me know if you need me. diene

sguanzon is who you are to swap with. avasmom is her email address. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused you.
Once again I am sorry for being so late assigning partners. I was very busy last week.

Nancy,
I emailed my Pal for the address. No swap info was included in any email. Just the name of the person that we are swapping with.

I usually wrap them in plastic... guess I forgot. I have had a rough week. I mailed those out on Monday morning before taking my son to the hospital for eye surgery. You can imagne I was not all there that day and on top of things my town is on fire. So far 30K acres have burnt. Please keep everyone here in your prayers. We have over 280 firemen here now fighting to save peoples homes.
Let me know if your plants don't make it and I will send you out another box.

Debbya - I am so sorry I am so late getting things out this month. Since the beginning of the month we've been painting and tiling the whole house and I just got the computer hooked back up. Hope you don't think I forgot about you! Should I just check your list for the types of things you want?

Sue,
I didn't think you forgot about me. ;)
I didn't mail my package out yet either. I'm planning on doing so tomorrow. I'm a little behind too, mostly because of the weather. Tomorrow night our low temp is 43*, next night 41*. I'll be turning on the central heat again.

I'll be happy with whatever you choose for me. I love variegated stuff. I picked up a wire bunny-topiary (and would love some ivy) cuttings or plant if you have any. The ivy doesn't have to be variegated. There isn't a houseplant I don't love! I need to update my GW list. It's old. I tried to update it a few weeks ago, and for some reason the update didn't work. I spent a long time typing for nothing! ;)
I'm also looking for basket Monstera (cuttings or small plant) philos, cactus, succulents.

I recieved my box yesterday. Thanks lhmkc. I loved them all.
Cedarnest I sent Chris an email with your email address in it for him to contact you about mailing your plants. I just forwarded the email addresses because I know I always want to email my partner so that i can send them what they want. I will send him another email. If I don't hear from him I will send you a box.

I'm going to hold off until Saturday or Monday to ship my box out. It's still unseasonably chilly (40*). I'll post a delivery confirmation number when the box goes out. Sorry for the delay! Illinois weather is so unpredictable!

I received a lovely box from Norma. I recognize the Pothos, and (I think) a wandering jew and some really interesting cactus cuttings. Do you have names for these?

Thanks again for the nice Box!

Deb,

I sent your box out yesterday DC #0306 1070 0003 7816 1812.
I'm so sorry to be so late -- so much going on in April - I'm not usually late like that.

In any case, I hope you like what I sent. I left the cactus and succulents in their pots 'cause I've learned from experience they often don't like to be disturbed.

Let me know when you get the box, Deb.

Sue,
Our weather finally warmed up this week (hopefully for good this time) so I'm glad you sent my box late. Last week was chilly (40*) so this week is much better for plant shipment (70's/80*).

I'll let you know when the box arrives.

I receieved my box from cedarnest, it was great. I mailed my box on Tuesday evening, however due to low temps in the area it didn't arrive in good condition.

I will offer to send a replcement box when the weather in NY warms up.

Giant HUGS for such a nice box!

I'm new here sort of. Starting over after having many of my plants lost to theft. I'm working on rebuilding my collection. I know it's to late to join this swap but if anyone heads up another I would love to join. In the mean time I'll start on things to share.

I had no idea this was an old post. Sorry for not paying attention. Just looking for anyone that may have extra houseplants they may want to find good homes for. I don't have much but a few jades, some ferns and maybe a couple other small things.
