NEW: HousePlant Swap #3

lil_green_thumbJuly 26, 2007

I love houseplant swaps!! (thought I would fancy this up a little lol)

A FEW RULES AND GUIDELINES TO KEEP IT FAIR FOR ALL SWAPPERS!!

--Signups until July 8th. Partners assigned no later than July 10th. Boxes to be sent out by July 30th so we can get started on the next month's sign-ups!

--You must send at least 4 cuttings or small plants. They must be in good condition. Cuttings DO NOT have to be rooted to send. You may send 2 African Violet leaves and this will count as ONE of your four. ( I just do not see it being fair to send your partner 4 AV Leaves and call that your send). You may send more if you like. Please try to send at least one of something from your partners wish list.

--Send with Delivery Confirmation. This is a REQUIREMENT so we can track the boxes and make sure it is not left sitting in a Postal Truck or Post Office somewhere.

--Priority Mail not a requirement but nice because of the heat. It is up to the sender. If mailed first class on a Saturday morning it will usually arrive by Monday and is a little cheaper for just a few plants or cuttings.

--Post here with Delivery Confirmation number when you send your box so your partner knows it is coming. This helps alot since it is summer and the heat is horrible almost everywhere. If you are going to be late sending the box please let me and your partner know so arrangements can be made if needed!

--Packing is to be done well to protect the plants. Be sure to rinse off the dirt. Wrap the roots in wet/damp newspaper. Then in little sandwich baggie if needed to keep the roots and newspaper damp during shipping. Wrap cuttings in damp newspaper also.

--THE PLANTS MUST BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH AT LEAST THE COMMON NAME.

-- YOU WILL RECEIVE AT LEAST 4 SMALL PLANTS OR CUTTINGS. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU GET NONE OR LESS THAN 4 PLEASE EMAIL ME AND LET ME KNOW.

--I TRY TO MATCH EVERYONE WITH SOMEONE THAT HAS AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR WANTS. BUT THIS IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE. YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO POT WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT AND SHARE IN THE NEXT MONTH'S SWAP. BUT IT MUST BE POTTED AND TAKEN CARE OF NOT LEFT TO DRY OUT.

--Post here if you want to join and send me an email directly (not thru GW because I don't get those for some reason) let me know your GW NAME, REAL NAME, ADDRESS, WHAT YOU HAVE TO TRADE, WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE. NO DELIVERIES TO POST OFFICE BOXES PLEASE! Sometimes this causes problems and delays in recieving plants and the extra time in a box can result in the plants dying.

Kim -

As per your first line????

~--Signups until July 8th. Partners assigned no later than July 10th. Boxes to be sent out by July 30th so we can get started on the next month's sign-ups! ~~~

Is this post a mistake or did you mean August????

If this is a new swap, I would like to join.

Please no AV leaves....I just bought 9 more 6" plants at Lowes!

I thought this was a house plant exchange, but I see on last months swap some people sent land plants?

I will send out a box stuffed with plants and hope to receive the same.

Here is a link that might be useful: exchange page

everyone - when ever you get a moment after you get your box for this month drop me an email with an updated Haves/Wants list.

You should all have an email with your partners info inside.
some of you could have been matched with 2 people to trade. be sure to join next month so I can pair you up with someone else to try to get more of your wants! Some of us (like me) may be harder to pair up!)

SWAPPING:
MARIANN SENDS TO KYLE
TAKIN ROOT SENDS TO KIM
LISSA SENDS TO NANCY
MARIE SENDS TO KIM
KIM SENDS TO ROOT & LISSA
SARAH SENDS TO DEB
KYLE SENDS TO SARAH
NANCY SENDS TO MARIE
DEB SENDS TO MARIANN

HOPE I DIDNT MISS ANYONE!

Kim ~ sorry I didn't send yours yesterday but the heat here has jumped to over 100 and I didn't want to take the chance with the new babies. It is suppose to cool down to the 90's by thur./fri. and I think they would travel better then.
sorry for the delay!

Nancy ~ thanks for letting me know! since we are closer I'm sure the heat wont be a problem.

I received Deb's box of plants today.

Thank you so much for the Coleus (that you grew from seed), Hoya (love the way it curls), Wandering Jew, Bridal Veil, Begonia 'Beatrice Haddrell' and the Paper Spine cactus. Everything was nice and moist.

Deb, I don't have any of these plants-love them all.

Nancy,

My plants arrived today in GREAT shape! Still very moist and healthy ~ I was worried since it has been so hot here.

I love the look and feel of the Streptocarpus (Bristols Tropical Twister) & Chirita (Kazu), they are sooo cute and soft! The Arrowhead vines ~ Mango Illusion & Imperial White are a great addition. I didn't have either one of them! Love the Blue Spiney Cactus! cactus are always welcome additions. MY office is starting to take on the 'jungle' look so slow non-vining growers are what my boss likes best! LOL He is so patient and understanding about my obsession with plants :)

I just have to coment on how WELL you packed them for their trip, what a GREAT way to do it! Now I have a fool proof way of getting tender young plant to their new mom's in healthy conditions.

THANKS SOOOO MUCH for ALL my new babies, Nancy!! :))

Kim ~ the weather is cooling off and I will be sending out your's tomorrow. Sorry for the wait!

It only hit 100 here yesterday. Supposed to be 103 today.
I am holding off on sending for a week. It is supposed to drop back to the low 90s ( 90-92) next week.

Hope everyone is staying cool!

Sarah,
Don't worry about it (but thanks for offering). You sent plenty of items to make up for the baby begonia. Just curious, what color was the foliage? I couldn't tell it was totally dried.

Deb -- The foliage on the begonia was dark green with a reddish tinge. I'm not sure exactly what type of begonia it is (got it on sale from Lowes, no tag), but it has the most delicate little pink flowers that are just beautiful. It's a shame it didn't make it.

Nancy, I'm glad to hear that everything arrived in good condition and that you like the hotpad/oven mitt. I bought them a couple of weeks ago, but just didn't get around to getting the box together. Hopefully everything will root well for you that isn't already rooted. I put hormone rooting powder on all before shipping.
