WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Is there any interest in a "Fall" violet swap? We could do a plantlet/leaf trade? Plantlets or leaves could be sent, whatever you have available. I'm sure some of you need the space for new varieties. ;)

Let's make this a quick swap. I'll take signups for the next week. Post swap Pal's the next day, and the box mailing date would be Sept. 15th.

All boxes should be mailed out by priority with delivery confirmation.

I have plenty of plantlets and leaves I could trade! Some are named and some are not. I would love do this leaf swap. Im not exactly sure how this works but I definitely want to be involved!


 o
RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

I'd be interested. :)

RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

I'm so glad there is some interest in the swap! Trading violets/leaves is such a fun, cheap way to get some new plants/varieties to play with during the dreary winter months. The boxes should be sent out by priority (USPS) priority usually arrives with in two or three days, quickly enough so that the babies, leaves don't sit in the box long. Let's make this worth the priority postage. Would everyone be able to send 15-20 items?

Send me your name/address and I'll pair you up with a trade swap Pal (by email). Let us know by posting here that the box is being mailed, post a confirmation number (USPS tracking number) and that's basically it! Also post when the box arrives and tell us what you received. Wrap your babies well for travel! Give them a good drink the night before packing. Label your plantlet/leaf by variety name. When including no-names, please label it clearly.

Hopefully, a few more will join with in the next few days. When Emailing me, please write "Fall Plantlet swap" so I don't accidentally delete your email. I get tons of spam mail.

I'd like to join in! I'll have some plantlets by then, and of course, lots of leaves! Most of mine are semis/minis, so hopefully someone likes those. If someone doesn't have a bunch, I don't need bunches in exchange. Let me know!

Checking in again! It's been so hot (mid 90's) for several weeks. Finally later on this week the temperatures are going to break, low 70's starting Monday! I'll check in again tomorrow, go through my email and will contact each of you with your trade pal's name. Hopefully, a few more will join in ASAP!

Hi,
The swap isn't going very well. Elaine had to drop out, I don't have any info for- Rachelcharlie, Manyminis, Erlyberd.

The only person who sent in their info is- Cajunkisses/Belinda.

I'll give this a few more days. And I'll update this thread often once more join (and send in names/addresses).
If more don't join with in the next few days, I'll try again in the spring.

RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Erlyberd,
Yes your message did come through. I had no idea you were Rick. Your first message ended up in my spam section. AOL presorts all email, so I really can't explain why they threw it in the spam section.

Ok,
WE ARE READY TO TRADE!! SWAP CLOSED!!

Janice is sending to Nancy
Nancy is sending to Deb
Deb is sending to Rachel
Rachel is sending to Rick
Rick is sending to Belinda
Belinda is sending to Janice

I really wish more would of joined! I can't promise that you will receive exactly what your looking for! But, I tried to pair up swap Pal's the best I could!

Now, LET THE FUN/TRADING FINALLY BEGIN!

Please send ALL BOXES out by priority, with delivery confirmation and POST HERE when your package goes OUT and is RECEIVED!
Please send your boxes out ASAP. Weather is quickly changing in some areas.
Pack your violet leaves, plants, plantlets carefully! Remember to be generous, everyone LOVES surprises, extras.. (make it worth the priority postage)! Add a few of your favorite pots, extra cups (for propagating), plant markers, favorite fertilizer, permanent markers, brushes, sponges, etc. to make your box extra special!

After writing this, I'll email everyone all swap Pal info.

Deb


 o
RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Deb, I dont see my name on there at all...and I have my emails were you mentioned you were going to trade with me. Whats up????? Now you say its closed??


 o
RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Hi Cece,
I don't have your personal info (name/address).
Several people emailed me when the swap wasn't doing so well offering to trade with me. But, never sent in any info.
I'll gladly trade with you, email me directly, and let's set up a trade.
Everyone's been patiently waiting for the swap to continue, I had to assign swap Pal's. Our area is under a frost warning for tonight, so my trading time is very limited. We usually have a few weeks warmer weather, and that's it.

Deb


 o
RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

I did receive an email asking what to send.
I thought I explained it clearly. Let me go over it again.
This is YOUR swap, you send what you have extra of- all must be NAMED varieties though. You can send plantlets, plants, leaves. It's UP TO YOU! When you signed up for the swap several of you asked for "Mini's/semi's" or didn't even send a list. So, I then paired you up with someone who hopefully will send you what you want. As for the amount of what your getting/receiving, it's up to you on how generous your willing to be. All that I ask is, PLEASE make the box special. If you can't add as much as you would like, add in pots, fertilizers, solo cups, soft leaf brushes, bamboo sticks (I use them to prop leaves), superthrive. Anything that your willing to send!
Send the box priority with delivery confirmation, and post when your box goes out and post again to share all the 'goodies' you received.
This is the fun part! Now, let's enjoy it!

I'm sorry to those of you who didn't send me the required info on time. I'm also sorry to those of you who didn't answer emails on time if your still in the swap (or wanted to trade with me either). This swap can't go on forever.

Deb

My box went out today for Rachel! USPS #0307 0020 0003 2229 8240.

Nice box Nancy!

RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Belinda,

I got your BIG goodie box today and immediately had to open it and see what you sent. You outdid yourself with the selection. You sent 18 different plantlets and leaves and a few suckers, and a bonus of some premade labels which is great.

Is there any chance the one you listed with the picture on the AV site as "lovely surprise" would happen to have a couple of leaves there too????? That one really caught my eye......

Thanks again for trading this round, they are always fun.

Janice


 o
RE: WANTED: Any interest in a 'Fall' plantlet/leaf swap?

Janice you are very welcome. I'm glad you liked my goodies.

No sorry "lovely" surprise wasn't in there, I didn't have any spare leaves of that one to send. The leaves I cleaned off her are put down for babies to see if she blooms true in the next generation. Will be happy to share some of her babies with you when I get them tho. Maybe in a future trade?

Happy Growing!
Belinda
