Hello all!

I'm very interested in Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii' or 'Tandarra Red', and Musa 'Dwarf Cavendish'. I don't have any bananas to offer, but I do have many other goodies:) In addition to my swap lists, I have these tropicals ready to trade:

Abutilon 'Souvenir de Bonn' - fresh cutting
Begonia 'Sophia'
Breynia nivosa - Hawaiian snowbush - fresh cutting
Bromeliad/ Neoregelia - this is my best guess at what I have; behaves like a gigantic jew, colors up purplish in the sun.
Brugmansia 'Snowbank' - fresh cutting
Davallia trichomanoides - Squirrel's foot fern
Euphorbia 'Breathless Blush'
Euphorbia/ pedilanthus tithymaloides - variegated Devil's backbone
Ficus elastica Tricolor
Gibasis geniculata - Tahitian Bridal Veil
Haemaria discolor - Jewel orchid, acts more like a jew than an orchid!
Hoya carnosa (I believe) rooted cutting
Oleander, red - fresh cuttings
Passiflora caerulea - rooted cutting
Pellonia 'Watermelon'
Peperomia obtusifolia, fresh cutting
Philodendron erubescens - black leaved variety
Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'
Scindapsus pictus argyraeus - Silver pothos
Seemania sylvatica 'Bolivian Sunset' - Hardy Gloxinia
Tradescantia sillamontana - Fuzzy jew
Tradescantia fluminensis variegata
Tradescantia zebrina
Tender Sedums and succulents:
Aptenia cordifolia variegata
Bryophyllum - variety that has purple speckled leaves and blooms great big chandeliers of peachy bells.
Sanseveria 'Coppertone'
Variety of sedums, graptosedum, haworthia, etc

Thanks for reading,
~Heather

I have a high color mini pup : http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/1669/dwarf-variegated-banana.php

http://www.perennials.com/seeplant.html?item=4.319.110

which is considered a super dwarf cavendish.

I don't know if you are looking for just a regular dwarf cavendish or a super dwarf cavendish. I also have a dwarf cavendish however I do not have any pups off of that one at present - you'd have to wait until summer of next year to see if it will give pups if you are only interested in "dwarf cavendish".

The mother plant seems to be less than 6 inches tall right now and the pup is a little smaller. I just brought it inside due to freezing weather outside - we just got a cold front this afternoon.

I am interested in 2 things you have :
stevia plant (well rooted and strong as this plant seems to be delicate)
saponaria seeds

let me know via email if you are interested in trading.
