HAVE: List of recently rooted/going to root soon cuttings

All of the plants were cut/broken off and let to callous over, then they were soaked in a Superthrive solution for about 10 minutes then dipped in rooting hormone powder. They are currently in little peat pots in a mix of peat moss (as it was all I had on hand at the time) and perlite, but mostly perlite. The peat pots can be planted directly into another, permanent pot, and it will fall apart on its own, so the packaging claims...

1. James Robert Hubley III - Sedum rubrotinctum - 2 cuttings

2. Belvedere - maybe a mother of pearl ghost plant, I'm not sure and can't make a positive ID - 2 cuttings

3. Perky - Crassula obliqua variegata - 1 cutting *I've read that leaf cuttings of this will revert back to regular, and lose the varriegation, but I haven't gotten that far*

4. Roger Beroza Friedman PhD aka SATAN - Portulacaria Afra Variegata - after one month this is one of two that haven't taken root. 1 cutting

5. My shining star...
Mr. Prickles - Huernia Zebrina - 2 cuttings Mr. Prickles is the other that has yet to take root after 1 month, but the cuttings look as they should.

I've never sent a plant in the mail, so I'll have to get explicit instructions to minimize screwing up. As far as what I want in return, there is nothing in particular that I want but it needs to be interesting...which I acknowledge is subjective as all get out, but it is what it is. The pictures are of the parent plant and the "cuttings #" is the number of cuttings I have available right now. Sending me an email will ensure that I get it, but I have finals this week, so you'll have to bear with me on that too. :) Thanks. Bob
