WANTED: Tropicals

SmokyMist(7 East TN)February 29, 2008

You know, I have spent the past 5 or 6 years building up a large sedum collection, and this year find that I actually can grow tropicals. I really thought I couldn't, but I have spent the best winter babying some tropicals indoors . I would love to try more. I don't know what . A banana I would love, aroids, alocacias, foliage plants. Just anything lovely.

Of course alot of my tradable plants are outside and dormant. Here is what I have inside that I can trade..

1.) Two Kalanchoe Blossfeldinia that bloom yellow

2.) One 20" tall Kalanchoe Blossfeldinia that blooms coral and is in bloom right now

3.) Sanservia 'Moonshine'

4.) Small plant ( from rooted cutting) of Philodendron Red Emerald

5.) Cuttings from Night Blooming Cereus

6.) Various African Violet well rooted leaves

7.) Very good sized, thick, well rooted, and leafy, named brugmansia cuttings. ( I can provide a list )

8.) Various crinum lilies that I need to divide anyway , again I can make you a list if you're interested. These are not hardy to this area so have to spend their winters in my basement.

It's a long shot, but I'm very interested also in plants native to Madagascar . I would just love to find a Baobab tree.

Please contact me if you're interested in a trade.

Hi, I might be interested in the crinums. My bananas are just coming out of dormancy but I'm sure I could find a pup or two somewhere out there. Please post here if you send me and e-mail. Sometimes e-mail sent through GW does not go through.
