HAVE: Downsizing my collection

Posted by penfold2 4b, MN (My Page) on

I've collected a number of succulents over the years and now realize that I don't have the room nor the inclination to pack them all into the greenhouse this fall. I would just sell them on eBay, but several of them are a bit weak due to crowding and insufficient light and/or heat. I'd feel better just trading them, but the option is there if anyone wishes.

The downside to this trade is that I'm going to be kind of picky about what I accept. I am downsizing my collection after all, and some of these plants are somewhat rare and/or expensive. But the upside is that I'm willing to trade several of my plants for just one or two that really interest me. I'm not really looking for any succulents right now, except maybe some unusual epiphytic cacti (no holiday cacti). I'm very interested in orchids, Hoyas, epiphytic ferns - basically anything epiphytic and unusual. I try to avoid hybrids and mutations like variegates and cristates. You can check my trade list for more specifics and other plants I have for trade.

Here's what I have for succulents:

Adansonia digitata (Baobab tree)

Adenium arabicum

Boswellia dioscoridis

Commiphora eminii

Commiphora kua

Commiphora sp northern Madagascar

Cyphostemma currori

Dendrosicyos socotrana

Dorstenia gigas

Euphorbia decaryi var. spirosticha

Hatiora salicornioides

Monsonia (Sarcocaulon) herrei

Moringa drouhardii

Pachypodium saundersii

Sansevieria ballyi 'Minnie'

Sedum oxypetalum 1

Sedum oxypetalum 2

Trichodiadema bulbosum
