First person to respond with an address and a willingness to reimburse postage can have it.

Thanks, I hope it does well for you. I don't seem to have the best lighting for it so I thought I'd let others try, rather than throw it away. I hate throwing plants away!

Hi,
If you don't have any other offers to take it, I would happily adopt it and send you postage. I do have lots of light here and it looks like it will be a gorgeous plant, judging from the leaves. By the way, everything you sent me is doing great.
I have a a few more things coming up now, would be happy to trade. By the way, I tried your suggestions for how to ship, just slipping the plants into baggies without the soil and pots. It is working out much better.
Best
Joanne

I would love to have it but I have never rooted a crown. Too new to this. I am going to look for plants tomorrow. This is rural and very few AV's for sale except around Easter and Mother's Day. Easter is going to be special this year.
I have beaten the bugs, spraying every few days so ready to begin anew. I want at least 3 more to go with my latest Walmart rescues
I hope the crown finds a fine new home!

I'd be interested. Ideas on how much postage would be to WI?

My apologies to the above posters for a delayed response. For some reason I'm not getting email notification from garden web that I have messages here. Joanne, are your leaves still doing ok? If so I will probably send the crown to a new person. To Alwayslearning14, postage should be around $5 or less.

I sent you an email just now.
The person from WI may have more experience but I would like to have it if that person doesn't respond.
I have never rooted a crown but, I did as Joanne and Diana said about rooting leaves. I bought cake boxes at my local bakery, I have small pots and light loose soil. I was going to try some leaves but I would like the crown if the person from WI hasn't responded.
It is very hard to get violets here. We are rural and I am resigned to mail order.
It will be fun to try to root a crown. I think I can, yes I do!
Let me know if you didn't get my email or if you can't send an email to me.

Thank You!
I Received Your Email!
Thank You Very Much For The Violet!
I looked everywhere in town for the last week or more and the only thing I have heard is "Maybe we will get some in for Mother's Day."
I will take very good care of it. AV's are hard to come by out here in the rural West!

Thank Vivey
I am looking forward to it very much.

I hope I can do right by the Fiery Sunset. AV's are captivating in their tough and fragile loveliness
