The attached thread has detailed info on the park and the swap.

Everyone is welcome, especially new gardeners. Trades are not limited to plants. Crafts, food items like homemade jam, and all types of garden items are included. If you want to trade it post it here.

Here is a link that might be useful: Previous swap thread

Hi!
I have several hawaiian sunset vines rooted and ready for homes(Stictocardia beraviensis) that I will pot up into gallon pots this afternoon. Have many more things that I can root and divide so I will post a list in a bit. Also, have two red parasol mandevillas already in gallon pots.

To help newbies get a better idea of how this works, and to remind others that we like to play nice, I try to get some "rules" out there for everyone to review. They help us all have a relaxing, good time.

After nearly 15 years of hostessing and attending these swaps I've learned a lot from others. This is especially helpful to newbies who have told me often that they were confused with the way things were done at the swap. Hopefully, this will help them a little.

When you arrive, please seek out a hostess if we don't greet you first. Especially if you haven't been before. Any of us will be happy to help you with any questions you might have. Get a name tag, sign up for door prizes, and if we have one, sign the list for future notifications of swaps.

Don't forget to bring a sack lunch. We'll need sustenance for continued swapping ! Some swaps have a potluck lunch, and there are some who bring things to share with others, but bring something for yourself just in case. Cold drinks are sometimes provided, but please don't count on this.

We will usually have door prizes. If you'd like to donate to our stash, please bring a new or gently used gardening item. We usually include things like fertilizer, gloves, tools, outdoor decorations, books, etc.

Garden Junk and Garden Art is also welcome for trading. Hoses, trellises, rusty buckets, signs, you name it ! We've had people bring homemade soap, mosaic pots, and other great items.

In the past, we welcomed your donations to help pay for the rental of a park pavilion. We are happy that this new location costs nothing (for now). If you ever attend a swap that asks for donations please drop a few dollars in the jar to help cover the cost -- which is usually covered out of the pocket of the hostess. Please consider that you're leaving the swap with plants that would have cost so much more at a nursery. A little money in the jar will go far to help these great swaps continue.

You may want to bring cardboard boxes to haul home your booty. You may end up taking home more than you bring, and it's not always easy to get it all back in your car. Packing in boxes will allow you to stack them and keep your plants safe.

Bring something to use for labeling the plants you receive. Old window blinds are excellent for this purpose ! They last forever and they're kept out of landfills.

On that note, please label your plants for others. It saves a lot of time at the swap. You don't have to tell everyone what each plant is, since they already have names on them.

Another helpful hint, which takes more time, but is great to have: consider putting a notebook together of your plants. Add pictures and descriptions of each plant you bring. Over time, you can add to it as you accumulate different types of plants. This also saves time at the swap. Others can view your notebook to see what a certain plant will look like.

There are usually not enough tables for everyone at the pavilion, so please consider bringing small tables to use to set your plants on.

While swapping, please do not take plants off another person's table without asking. They may be across the room promising that same plant to someone else. Please find the owner and ask permission. Everyone's different, of course, and may bid you take whatever you like. But it's good to err on the side of caution, and ask anyway. It's a good idea for all of us to put our name on our table so that everyone knows who to find when they see a plant they'd like.

Plants usually placed under the tables are not for swapping. This is where we place the plants we're taking home.

Some plants are special or rare and the swapper may want something special in return. This is understandable. On the other hand, some of us don't always need something in return. Please consider everyone's feelings while swapping.

You may notice above and below this post that people are talking about the plants they have. If you are new to this and wonder what's going on, this is what we call pre-arranged swapping. You can list what you have and others can either post here what they would like from your list or they can contact you by email (if you make sure you add your email to your preferences). You can check their lists to see if you'd like to make a swap. Keep track of each swap and bring the plants to the event for that person, and they will bring what you liked from their list. This is not necessary, of course. You can just bring your plants to the swap and trade in person. But if you pre-arrange swaps, it's kind of like reserving a plant that you really want. If you wait until the swap, someone else may get it before you do. And that can be a bummer !

Last but not least, have a good time. Make new friends ! I've met really great folks at the swaps and we're still swapping many years later !!

If you can't make the San Antonio swap, consider the swap just up the road in Manchaca. A post about that date should show up later.

Donna, you can list your trades right here on this thread. I don't have much of a list yet, but for starters I'll say that I'll have some nice size rose plants (several Mrs. Dudley Cross and other varieties) in two and three gallon pots and some agave pups ('green goblet' and others).

There's only one thing I can think of to add to Patty's excellent tips on swapping and that is to put your name as well as the plant name in the pots. It's nice to remember what came from who :-)

Does anyone need plastic pots ? Have more than I will ever use (especially since I need to cut back) so I would like to bring pots to whoever needs them. If you need some to pot babies for the swap, maybe we can meet somewhere beforehand. Let me know !

Pinkpixie, you got it, if you will be at the swap. I do not want anything in trade.

I transplaned it this morning. It actually has about 6 leaves. As we did not have a killing freeze last year mine has really grown this year. some of the leaves are about 6 inches across.

Hi Rebecca (txpinkpixie) Fern leaf lavender please! The one you gave me last time turned out to be a real star. Hasn't stopped blooming.

Wavy prickly pear pad and chocolate mint.

I'll bring canna warscewiczii (pretty red bloom), two different umbrella plants and water iris.

If you'd like more mint I can bring Kentucky Colonel Mint.

Rebecca, I'm sorry I missed you at the last swap. Email me. I thought I still had the list of your wants, but can't find it.

For everyone else this is what I have in pots now:

*Agave pups: several Green goblets and two other kinds that don't get too large
*Fruit cocktail shimp: 3 plants
*Night blooming jasmine (cestrum): 1 plant
*Wooly bee bush: 1 plant
*Yellow brug: 1 big pot of mature roots
*Roses: 1 La Marne, 1 Valentine, 3 Mrs. Dudley Cross, plus a couple of others
*Australia canna: 2
*Various cactus pads for rooting

What I can dig on request:

*Chocolate plants
*Coral vine
*Voodoo lily bulbs -- maybe
*Winter blooming honeysuckle bush -- if some branches have rooted

Looking for:

Any interesting succulents, such as sedums, agaves (varigated preferred), other desert type plants that I don't have. Especially interested in hardy cultivars. Or what have you?

I just erased my whole post so now here goes for the second atempt

Agave augustifolia variegata (tiny), Agave prot-americana (crassbanded fat leafed variety),Agave vilmoriniana (30+ rosettes so PLEASE ask for multiples), Agave ferdinand-regis baby, A very hardy dark green midsized agave that probably has A salmiana in it. .
Aloes: most are cut rosettes that are in the process of rooting now. so these are small. some have roots and some don't yet,but maybe by october.
Aloe glauca, A.nobilis, Aloe X spinossisma, A aborescens, A. deltoideodonta, A. deltoideodonta var fallax, Gasteraloe aristata x ?
Gasteria
Kalanchoi lucia, kalanchoi baharensis 'fang' (6" plant), Donkey ears kalanchoe small rosettes from leaf end with roots and growing.
Huernia procumbens and H. zebrina.cuttings, some rooted, mystery stapeliad (looks like gigantia)
pedilanthus macrocarpa
echeveria topsy turvy cuttings forming roots
Epiphylum oxipetalum, E. hookerii cuttings ,
opuntia cochinelifera, O. chenile,O. ellisiana, O. cacanapa var ellisiana,
Cylindropuntia whipleii (snow leopard) , Cylindropuntia imbricata,
Senecio himalaya cutting
I have 4 varieties of hardy ice plant that I lost the tags on, so some are a small lavendar and a pink (I think) variety of lampranthus spectabilis or delasperma. These are 2 somewhat low shrubby varieties, and 2 more mat forming, more fleshy, dark magenta blooming ones , Maybe a Carpobrotus edulis
Artemesia ludoviciana 'valery finnis"
Of the natives, I can probably dig up an agarita or an evergreen sumac, Salvia farenacia, S. Farenacia augusta duelberg, Salvia gregii, I can start some salvias rooting but it is so hot they don't always respond. I will try and report back closer to the date. once it cools off

I will probably find more but this is what I have right now. I have been killing plants due to over work.

Now the I WANTS

Texaspinkpixie, I wouldn't mind a goji berry, amorpha fructicosa, chaya, and a white sage (maybe) . do you know what the plant is exactly?. That is one of those things that people use different things depending where they live. Is it the Salvia apiana, one of the many native artimisia like A. ludoviciana, A. fifolia,A frigida? I am not trying to be snobby with the latin names so please do not be offended by them , I am just trying to figure out what plant it is. If you can't be mor exact, I probably will say I am in a gambling mood anyway. I do have three varieties of the A ludovinciana (sp?) but hey what's one more. LOL.

If people answer me by email (on my page) I can possibly send photos of the moms or of the actual plants.

Hey Ragna, no worries....I can't find it either. There were fig cuttings but I can't remember what I had for breakfast most days!

Hi Mara! I know you are the farthet thing from snooty it is a good habit to get into for clarification purposes...I was the one that was late to the last swap and we talked for quite a while...I think...did I bring you a granite birdbath?

You got it...the chaya and gogi berry are yours! The salvia is the s. apiana used for smudging and they are this seasons seedlings. Supposedly used to clear scattered energies and provide a calming atmosphere if burned like incense, but as far as I am concerned, the jury is still out on that :)
For trade I would love cuttings from any of the following: huernia procumbens, h. zebrina, the mystery stapeliad, escheveria topsey turvey, or pedilanthus macrocarpa. Can I hav kalanchoi "fang" you did mean 6" and not 6'right?

Hi dstartz!
I would love some hurricane lilies,christmas cactus (white) and hibiscus 'snow queen'. Do I have anything you would like for trade?

I may be able to talk the hubby into a couple more birdbaths if there is any interest this time around. I will see if I can squeeze one atleast for the door prize.

She is a big one(3+ feet above ground + roots)She is all yours and I will keep her sister.Do you want me to bring her in her 5 gal pot or would you like me to wrap her rootsin damp newspaper and bring her in a bag for travel to save space? Also, I was wondering if you had a pad to spare from your grizzly bear prickly pear this time (there I go with common names but I cannot find the correct scientific one, actually I found 3)?

Mara, I have the varigated A. augustifolia and that's quite all right about Agave ferdinand-regis.

Shirley, wanted to pass along to you and others that may get it that A. Vilmorniana is not as cold hardy as many other agaves. A friend and I bought it summer of '09 and we both lost it to an early freeze that same winter. Mine was under a tree and covered with a double layer of quilts, but it is so beautiful I want to try it again.

Mara, do you grow it? I seem to remember that you collected the pups from a bloom stalk in downtown Austin, but maybe that event was on a blog I read.

Oh tthere is a a. ferdinand regis with your name on it. I had three babies that I was giving away.

I do know that these were flowering in Austin. I do not know when they were planted in the public streetside city planting in East 7th street, but 2 years ago we had that freeze. I also have a friend that grows it north of down town San Antonio for several years under an oak tree. I think that these agave need careful hardening off. They take a couple of years to atain their hardiness so they need to be protected at first. I am going to grow them in pots this winter and keep them outside moving them in for the bad freezes and then plant them in February. They will get cold but not COLD . next year I will protect them. I have not grown them before either. Maybe they are varible in the hardiness between populations also. that might be why there is so much conflicting info out their. I am hoping that theses are hardy since their parents completed their lifecycle in Austin. Always the optimist.

Thanks all, I was thinking of planting around the oak trees like a ground cover, but this is not the right plant for that purpose. Some info stated hardy to zone 7 but that can't be right.

It does look like a beautiful container plant and wintering under cover.

Hello everyone- I've been reading posts on this forum for quite a while and would like to come to the fall swap this year not for plants, but for advice.

We moved into our home 9 years ago and have slowly been working on the landscaping. I have a pretty good size vegetable garden and have been adding flower beds when I have the time (and energy). I have some areas that I'm having a hard time coming up with plant ideas. I'm hoping you all might be able to help.

Of course I'd love to talk about it over cupcakes- I'm a lot more talented in the kitchen than the garden :) And I could bring pics to help you all see what I'm talking about.

I look forward to meeting you all. I think you have just beautiful gardens and a whole lot of gardening wisdom.

Hi Lisa ! Will be nice to have a new face at the swap. You don't need to have plants to trade to attend. We welcome newbies and love to get them started, so you may want to bring a few boxes because I'm sure we'll be sending you home with some plants. We LOVE cupcakes ! (GRIN) We show our thanks by sharing what we have brought. I cannot vouch for everyone, but many will give without receiving.

Just in case... you may want to look up some of the plants that are listed here to learn if they might be something you'd like to grow. Bring your list with you and ask the gardeners more about those plants.

Fall is the best time here to plant perennials, and many plants that come to the swap are ones you can't find at just any nursery or box store. You'll see unique things to drool over !

I hope you'll be able to attend. We have lots of fun. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to email me at soriano471@sbcglobal.net.

You all are an incredibly generous bunch.

One of the beds I'm thinking about needs to have work done on the porch behind it and gutters put in. It's probably smarter to wait until after that's done so things don't get trampled. There's also a couple of trees that need to come down (half dead and too close to the house) so I'll need to see how much the amount of sunlight changes in those areas. But I'll bring some boxes just in case- I have to carry the cupcakes in something :)

Tally, I'd like one of the variegated crinum and one of the crinum americanum. I remember you like Brugmansia and I have several of those I can bring or I'll have a list later.

Hi Tally!

Is there anything from my list that you would like for trade (big list above)? I would love a varigated crinium, varigated agave,Curcuma elanta, and please please cuttings from your cereus cactus (been looking for it a while). I see from your blurb you are setting up (or have set up) a pond and I have some peaches and cream waterlilies I can dig out of my pond. I have a few others but they have not bloomed for me yet so I am not sure they made it but I will look if you are interested in them.

I made 9 of these sempervivum 'water gardens' for a family reunion and I would be willing to trade 4 of them for plats, if anyone would be interested in them.

Although this pictures shows on 10 plants in the bowl, I will bring only bowls that have 11 plants in them.

Although the one in the picture only has 10 plants in it, the ones i will be bringing each have 11.

____________________________________________________

I would love to trade with:

roselee
Agave pups: Green goblets and two other kinds

wantonamara
Agave vilmoriniana and hardy ice plants

Do I have anything y'all might like to have?

I am not going to bring plants to the swap. It has become too difficult for me to drag things to and from the car.
I will bring several colors of columbine seeds, if anyone is interested.
I am bringing the one plant for pixie.

Gotcha all!
I am totally flexible with plants, if you want to bring me one I will be totally excited. If not well, I will be totally excited you took one of mine! And if you turn your back I will stuff plants under your table or in your car BWAHAHA!

Always brugs! One of my favorites. Water lilies! OOOO!

I will run by Home depot and see if they have any more of the variegated crinums Friday when I am out. This one is a cream colored, not white like the one I already have, I bought 2 pots of it and divided them up to plant in the yard, then decided to swap off some of them. I almost bought all of them having no willpower.

Rebecca, how much of this cactus do you want?? I will bring as much as fits in the car as I have to cut off several 10` pieces this weekend.

Tally HO!

BTW, I'll have a couple of almost full rolls of landscape fabric to trade or to contribute to the door prize table.

Divided up some of the succulents last night so will bring all of those.
Squill violacea, African hosta
Plumeria pudica-3 pots of 1 stalk each
Plumeria lee langetti seedlings-I think I have 2
Plumeria wave rage-1

dstartz-I would love one of your amaryllis and any bromeliads

Pink-patchouli please! I can not find it here. And if you have any left a pad of the wavy thornless prickly pear, I have a thornless that blooms pink if you want some of it. I also have native thalia dealbata for the pond, aka alligator flag and a purple stem taro if you would like. I will divide them this weekend.

Roselee-would you dig up a chocolate plant for me? I have had no luck with that since Ike hit, hopefully our salt content is low enough now it will grow.

I am always looking for liriope if anyone has any. I need ground cover the chickens won`t eat.

Hey Tally,
I have plenty of wavey prickly pear and the pads are as big as dinnerplates, you got it! Patchouli also. (and water lilies and brugs if you want them.

Would LOVE pink flowered p.p.!!! The pond plants sound great also, and as many pieces of the cereus as you can spare would be awesome....thanks!

Hey Mara,
I didnt read your whole post...nope he's mine all mine and I am actually considering kissing him (the frog) but the blackberry is yours:) It is a thorny cultivar but surprisingly takes very little water and turns brown in the heat of summer but is already green again as it is getting ready for a fall performance. I think you will love it as the berries have that "wild berry" taste.

Okay, finally got my list. Let me know if there's anything you might be interested in.

Vick's plant plectranthus
salvia coccinea red, white, and maybe dreamsicle
bilbergia
crag lily echeandia
rain lily pink or white
canna
crinum

daylilies - something other than orange and yellow, unless bicolor, ruffled, etc. Would love pinks/purples/creams

interested in flowering natives and drought resistant, mexican oregano, coneflowers, salvias, Russian sage/perovskia

Since I have SO many plants, I would very much like to consider garden junk ! So, if you have things laying around cluttering up the garage or back yard, let me know what you have. I might be able to take it off your hands. No junk too junky to consider ! You'd be surprised what I've taken in trade. :-)

Please email me directly for any exchanges instead of replying here. I see email much more often. Thanks so much !

Also -- as you add your HAVES, also post your WANTS. Some of us make up lists of what we have in abundance, but if we see that someone wants something in particular, we might be able to find it for them.

Anybody know if Barbra is coming? She hasn't posted.

Please disregard the curcuma elanta. I can not tell what is what in that bed. It might be canna or it might be ginger, the chickens have eaten most of the foliage and both have the same type rhizome, they look the same. I am sorry. Please choose something else from my list

Also have:
Squill violacea or African hosta, this gets a blue flower spike, great for shade, part shade, sun. Bulbs resemble lilies. Speckled leaves.

Personally, I don't see any reason why we can't sell some of our plants at the swap if someone wants to pay for them. There are many posts advertising plant sales and I don't see that anyone on GardenWeb is preventing this.

Kathy, I would love to try that tomato. Sounds delish! This is the first year I have tried rooting some tomato cuttings. Out of 36 cuttings I only had 5 or 6 actually root.

I`m not sure how tender squill is but I think it`s pretty tough, it survived Ike and both years of hard freezes we had, that freeze killed my 30` rubber tree and a 25 yo plumeria. But the squill was unfazed.

Linda,I would love a roughleaf dogwood if it is drought resistant once established.

Tally, DG has Squill violacia rated at 10a. Maybe that is the temperature the foliage is damaged. They can be conservative with their ratings. I have seen mexican oregano rated at Z9 there and I have had it growing through 11 degree snap winter before last without any problem.. I swear I have seen Squill violacia sold at Barton Springs Nursery in Austin out in the landscape section. I will try it. And much it outside. If it has a short lifespan, I will grieve a little knowing I tried. I am more than a tad colder than you . I am pretty high up outside of Austin. Right on the boundary between 8a and 8b. I think the boundary goes through the kitchen.

OPEN GARDEN

Bob and I are opening our little garden after the San Antonio Plant Swap on Oct. 13. I hope you all can come. The time will be from 1:00 to 3:00 or thereabouts.

The swap usually starts at 9:00 and goes on until about 11:30 so this should give people time to get a bite of lunch before heading over our way. There are several restraurants very close to the park.

According to Bing Maps our house is 5.1 miles making it approximately 13 minutes from Rogier's Park. I'll give out directions at the swap.

Please let us know if you are planning to come so I'll have an idea of how many cookies to make (or buy :-).

You can reply through 'My Page' or send an email to: ragnaa at aol dot com

Come and pet the baby albino giraffe ... ;-)

Now back to the swapping!

I spoke to soon about the Mex. oregano. The stems are all woody and they root on fresh growth. If they push out new growth with these fall rains I will try again. Same with the Salvia ballotiflora. I am trying but they are desiccated from the heat and I do grow them hard. Thank you nbtonyafor sticking the agastache in to root. I hope it isn't a dried stalk like I am finding. Most of my salvia is rootable. The melissodora is hard to root so I hope some of them come through.

Mara,

I would be interested in the Salvia chamaedryoides, please! Interesting to hear there is a red variety, the things I found online all showed blue.

Thanks!

Does any one have white and blue walking iris? I would love a start. I have some of the yellow I can swap.
I don't know what else I might have to trade.

Tonya, The reddish one is another salvia, a microphylla gregii hybrid. The S. chamaedryoides is blue with silvery white foliage.I will add the s.ch. to your list.

I stopped in my traditional "post dentist Nursery stop"and bought some Salvia gregii "teresa" , S. gregii 'raspberry' and a Salvia microphylla "wild watermelon" so I will have a few cuttings of these too. I also found a leonitus menthalatum (SP?) in the yard .

Oh Mara, I misread your sentence. Thanks! Would love a cutting of the red hybrid, and the mycrophylla "wild watermelon", too, please. Feel free to "cut me off" if I am asking for too many! No hard feelings here.

Patty, I will be there. I am bringing giant red leaf crinums for Talley. I took my cactus soil, so I could start digging up plants, but after Betty called. I just wanted to get back home. I am going back this week, to see what I have to offer. Barbra

Hey folks! Looks like ill be taking the day off so most likely ill be able to go to the swap. I seriously have missed going so I'm real excited. As for what I have to trade, I don't really have much since I've been so busy these last 6 months at SABG. I can make some cactus soil and I was thinking of dividing some irises that I got from Kathy a few years ago that went crazy. Ill write more later.

Joey, you've been missed. I'm so glad to know you're able to come. I still have the purple flowering cactus you gave me years ago. I think it's called 'lace cactus'. In fact it got so big a piece fell off and I rooted it so now I have two. Also appreciate the 'baby rita' I got from you. I'll be bringing various cactus pads and a few other things.

Hi Joey!
We have missed you too, I'm so glad you checked in to let us know you'll be there.

Even if you don't bring much to trade, you can tell us about SABG, sounds pretty cool.

Joey, glad the iris did well. Patty mentioned them the other day. She does not know they are gone from out front.
Everything grew too well out there. My poor neighbor can't see to back out of his driveway. I am gradually getting rid of the taller plants.

It was good to hear from Joey, but we haven't heard anything from a couple of other regulars like Gina and Meredith. LeapingFrogLady replied to the announcement on the Discussions Forum. I hope that means she's coming. Jim isn't able to make it this time.

Don't anybody worry about not having a bunch of plants to trade. It's just nice to get together once in a while to chat and catch up and I'm pretty sure you'll go home with something :-)

Hi mamachile!

I would like a grapefruit if there is something on my list you would like to have in trade :)

Hi Sue!

What kinds of seeds are you interested in growing. I have a huge bag and am harvesting more evertime I get a day off. I will see if I can package up some for you and others that may be intersted. I have a lot of edibles and flowers and I think I would need 10 acres to plant them all out.

Hi Wally!

Are you coming to this swap? I just have a single tip plume right now. Is there anything else you are looking for (btw thanks for the rose of sharon trade)? Hope to see you there:)

Ok ,

For now I don't know what I want, I just want to give away plants otherwise they would be in the trash.

On the day I will bring some purple pond iris plant. I think someone here may be setting up a water garden who might be interested.

Hi Mamachile!

I would love some purple iris :) And is lemon grass a pond plant too? Someone mentioned it to me today to keep mosquitoes at bay and said it is 10 times better than mosquito shoo geranium (did not know). Do you have a pond and if so I can bring a waterlily peaches and cream. What kinds of plants are you looking for? I am sure I can find something for trade.

Okie doke I went by Lowes and got some clearance sages. Two look like may night salvia and the two others appear to be leucantha but don't quote me as they had no tags. For those who are looking for trading material scanning the clearance racks yields good plants 9 times outta 10

Hi texaspinkpixie
Thank you for replying. Yes, purple pond iris is yours as well as lemongrass. I read on yougrowgirl website lemongrass do grow in pond margin very well. I saw the picture and it was stunning. It also a good to rid of mosquito. Yes my husband Mike and I have a little pond but he is not putting anymore plants in it. The koi just ripped them all.

Today I sorted out the yard a bit and found more plants to give out:

Two guava plants .... All with one fruit still hanging.
One curry plant and,
One anthurium

Let me know if anyone interested.

I have a 6 ft. cane begonia that has enourmous pink florets. I will be cutting her down for the winter. If you would like a cutting, let me know if you have any edibles or herbs or amaryllis (what color?).
Thing is this cane begonia loves waterdowned beer and soda. It is amazing how tall she has grown on rain water and these other beverages. LOL

I have green cardamon plant. It is a mediterrainean plant that produces pods used for cooking and are very expensive. However, they are tropical. I have yet to see it bloom. I suppose the dry TX weather is the issue. However, when you water it it smells like cinnamon.

From what I can tell there are a few other people coming in from out of town as I am. Instead of bringing my camper I got a room (via Priceline) at the Howard Johnson that is just under a mile away from the swap. Contact me privately if you might be interested in sharing the room (I'll be sleeping on an air mattress on the floor as I hate hotel beds).
