HAVE: ariocarpus fissuratus (pic)

My DH broke my pot and I really just need to find a home for this one. I've got 3 other assorted sizes in the other pot, so I don't have room for this one. This is a picture of the actual plant I will be trading. This one has a double tap root, instead of the regular single.

I would be open to anything except cactus. Taking care of these stress me out enough! LOL! If anyone is interested, make me an offer. This is a good size cactus, and it is the largest of the four that I have.

I like things that are hardy to my zone, although I will bring stuff in if it is something special. I enjoy heirloom plants, night bloomers, and fragrant plants.

Thanks so much!

If someone hasn't already traded it away, I'd be interested in trading your ariocarpus for seeds of several arizona desert plants that I've collected. I can give you a bunch of seeds from each of these:
I have a variety of desert plant seeds that I'd like to trade for herb plants/seeds (stevia, basil, patchouli, cilantro, or others except for rosemary and lavendar).
Plant seeds I have to trade:

palo verde
palo blanco
golden ball acacia
peruvian brown cotton
chapparal sage
barrel cactus
plus I can throw in a few agave puppies (octopus agave)

Let me know if you're interested.

I am really looking for something that is not a desert plant. I just don't have a place for desert plants in my house or yard. My herbs haven't gone to seed, yet. Thanks for the offer, but I will have to pass, unless you have something else that doesn't require low moisture. It is fairly humid here for desert species and I have kids that love to water plants.

Well what plants in specific would you want? I could look for something.

RE: HAVE: ariocarpus fissuratus (pic)

If your kids like to water would you like to try a cold hardy palm? I have these that will do well in zone 7 Butia capitata, Butia yatay and Trachycarpus fortunei.
