WANTED: Leaf trades - parrot got by babies

Posted by woodsidetrader PA/6 (My Page) on

A few weeks ago the parrot (umbrella cockatoo) got out of her cage without our realzing it. We found her an hour later happily destroying all the baby AV plantets within her reach + a baby key lime tree.
When it's warm enough to trade I'd like to find some of the things I lost - or other interesting named varieties.
Working on updating my trade list.
If you're interested in trading, please post here since GW mail has not been reliable lately. Be sure to include your email address and I'll send you my trade list as soon as it's ready.
In general, I prefer plants with variegated foliage, double blossoms, frilled or bicolor blossoms, minis or semiminis.
No Rob's; they don't do well for me.

RE: WANTED: Leaf trades - parrot got by babies

I have a few that I can provide leaves for-Ma's Bridal Bouquet, Ma's White Elephant, Ma's Corsage- all three have white variegated leaves. I also have Pink Lady which has pink flowers edged in green, the foliage is ruffled and pink on the reverse. I have a semi-mini, Fairy Fountains which has plain leaves with pink and lilac freckled blossoms. I also have rooted plantlets that have not been potted up yet of Ma's White Elephant and Ma's Corsage. I have two small plants of wine red Tomahawk. If you are interested in any of these, let me know what you have to trade.
Thanks, Alana

It's way too hot to ship leaves now. But looking to line up a few trades for fall.
Looking for leaves from plants with variegated foliage, minis, doubles, frilled. Yes, the glitzy ones!
