Hey Everyone,
I wanted to find out if anyone would interested in doing a Christmas Cacti cutting swap. I thought that this would be a great way for those of us who are interested, to swap cuttings of our favorite Christmas cacti and get some cuttings of some others to expand our collections. Anyone itnerested??

RE: Christmas Cacti Swap

OK Andrew, I will trade some of my Easter Cactus-Louise Sunrise.

RE: Christmas Cacti Swap

I'd love to do this, but given the weather in the north, any trades I make will have to wait until warmer weather in Spring for shipment.

I have Caribbean Dancer, Beach Dancer, small rooted cuttings of Peaches & Cream, and Gold Charm. Possibly some varieties of S. xbuckleyi as well.

RE: Christmas Cacti Swap

I would be totally game for trading in the spring. I just posted this to the Houseplants forum:

WANTED: Holiday cactus cutting trades - mark your colors now :)

I'm hoping to trade holiday/Christmas/Thanksgiving and or easter cacti cuttings in early spring. If you have them, mark your colors well now.

I'll have these available:
Red "Kris Kringle", regular (between pointed and round)
Red w/white throat, pointed petal
Orange w/white throat, pointed petal
Orange w/white throat, round petal
White w/lavender tinged throat, long regular petal
Light yellow w/whitish pink throat, pointed petal
Bright Purple w/white throat, regular petal
Lavender w/lighter throat, regular petal
Lavender, round petal

Am looking for other types of yellows, whites with other markings, and pinks. (Am often game for any colors I don't have.)

Would like to find one of the true Christmas cacti (these are all T-giving, and some have rebloomed sometimes in the spring), and a few easter cacti too.

While they're blooming, mark 'em if you've got 'em.

I am very interesting in trading any time. I have several in buds right now will post colors later, but I think I have yellow and peach for sure.

Now, how we would need to organize this swap?
