NEW: Houseplant Swap #1

darkrulerMay 1, 2008

I would like to invite anyone that loves houseplants as much as i do to join in this round robin.i haven't been on in awhile but i hosted a couple RR's on other sites including this one.

Sign up until 25TH of MAY.Boxes to be sent out no later than 31TH.

Heres the rules

Send at least 4 more if you want of plants/cuttings that are indoor plant related.Can't send just all one type like african violet leaves.

After signing up please send me an email with your updated want list and have list (houseplant related) and i will do my best to coordinate your haves and wants with someone else.

Boxes can be sent out first class mail but priority would be better for the plants and everyone else.All packages need to have tracking numbers so plants don't get lost in the mail.

Boxes should be sent out on Saturday or Monday so they don't get stuck in the P.O. over the weekend.

I think that about says everything.I hope alot of people join and make this fun.

Hi, I would love to join your houseplant swap. It might get more results if you went over to the houseplant forums and posted to come here to join. Just an idea that I thought might get more attention. Keep me aware, Sonja

ok heres how it works.

1.you sign up
2.send me a list with what you have and want
3.i will pair you up with someone else by what they got with what you want and vice versa.
4.send out your box according to the date specified above
5.Wait for next months swap.

there are rules though
1.you must send at least 4 cuttings.you can send more if you want to
2.you can't send all the same plant.you can send two cuttings of one plant but that will only count towards one plant out of the four you are sending.
i hope these make a little more sense than the rules above

Does this mean rooted cuttings. Do you send then in pots.

bump just means "bump to the top of the list".As for pots you don't have to send in pots.

Ok, I have peace lily (large variety), mother in laws tongue (broad and short and tall and thin types), lipstick plant, africian violets (various) several varieties of cactus, red and white kolachee (can't spell) spider plants (2 varieties), philadendron, Jade and a couple of others that are too large to ship. I am not picky and probably would enjoy any new type of houseplant or vine. I am open to almost anything. That's it. Sonja

Can I play?
I don't have much to offer, I just moved and had to give a lot away.
small dieffenbachia stalk cutting - Tropic Snow
small Hawthorn Faschiatis (sp)
cutting - philodendron
Sun Star

If anyone would be interested in something like this PLMK. If not, that is OK.

I'm not picky about what I get, just like easy to grow stuff, I don't have much luck with "high maintenance" plants LOL

Thanks - Vic

Good morning Vic, My daughter picked up the box on Friday and brought it to me yesterday. Thank you so much for all the wonderful items. Your package is finally ready and will be shipped on Monday. I have been helping my daughter close on her new home and getting her moved in. She is so excited but it has put me behind. I will post your confirmation on Monday. Thank you so much for the beautiful metal candle holder and crystal candle holder and five different plants. I can not thank you enough. I will email Monday. I can't imagine why my email would have come back but I am learning that computers don't always know what they are doing!!!!!!!!!!! Have a good weekend and Thanks again, Sonja
