I have been looking for rau ram for the past year! Let me know what you would like to trade - you can check my trade list. I also would like to try a lotus. Would you be interested in an Alocasia? - I have Hilo Beauty and Illustris, also another pretty variegated one - I'm not sure of the name.

I am going to try to post my list of Haves and my wish list, but I need to apologize first. I have not had the time to prepare for this the way I would like. Most anything I bring will be just dug up and not nicely potted. Also I do not know the correct names for most of the plants I have or even the things I want.
If anyone would like, I can bring:

Holly bushes

Small green shrub �" maybe dwarf Yaupon

Orange Day Lilies

White Lilies

Purple Iris

Purslane multicolor �" these are in pots but were just dug up a week
ago. Still experiencing some shock.

Chocolate Plant - Pseuderanthemum alatum

Root Beer Plant, Hoja Santa, Mexican Pepperleaf Piper auritum �" These are just a few tiny volunteers coming up

Aloe Vera

Packaged seed from Wildflower Festival in 2009 �" Forget-Me-Not, Sunflower, Zinnia, Black Eyed Susans and Tomato Ace 55vf

Can bring leaves from African Violets if anyone wants to try rooting them.

I have one houseplant. The tag says it's a Dieffenbachie Exotica. Nice plant but is not doing well with the neglect I give.

Wish List:

Cardinal Plant
Pink Jasmine
Party Time or any Begonias
Turks Cap (smaller variety)
Shade plants
Moss Rose
Oncore Azaleas
Knock Out Roses
Any Christmas Cactus
Crown of Thorns

Thanks everyone,

C. Miller,

I may have some white Spider Lilies. I won't know till Friday. We moved this year. My daughter is living in our old house, but she is not a plant person. The beds have not gotten watered much and are totally overgrown. I am digging out things when I am there. I know some Spider lilies made it, but am bringing them here. I will check to see if there are more.

I wish I could go, maybe next year. I will be able to finally go to Galveston in January. It will be my first time. I owe Tally plants, I promised to her, when she lost hers due to Ike. I lost all the plants I started for her, when I got my new greenhouse and fried them. As, well as all the new tropical plants I bought from Puerto Rico, It was very sad. I did not realize how hot it gets in a greenhouse. I think Kristy made the same mistake when she got hers. If I do not loose my plants again this December, I will try and make my promise to Tally come true. My husband goes down every January to a meeting in Galveston, this will be the first time, I will be able to go, now that I am retired. Barbra,

Hey guys,
Sorry this is so late, but I had to clear a day off.

What I'm looking for:
Edible trees and scrubs - persimmon, pawpaw, and Barbados cherry for example.
Also I am bringing 2 door prizes and a treat and aluminum foil.

For those that I have arranged trades with or am bringing something for, I probably will not be able to get to the swap till @10:45. I hope it will be earlier, but it doesn't usually happen.
When I do get there, I will be wearing light blue denim capris and a t-shirt with a scarecrow & pumpkins on it.

Thanks a bunch to Jennifer and everyone.
