WANTED: Plant or Seed.

Posted by Zacherie none (My Page) on

Hello -
I have created a very diverse list of desired plant specimens. These specimens represent only a mere fraction of what I would like to have in my possession, but it is a start. However, I highly doubt that many of them will be common enough for trading or bequeathing, but I figured that I would give this an opportunity.

Alluaudia humbertii
Alluaudia procera
Angraecum sesquipedale
Cinnamomum zeylanicum
Colletia paradox
Crassula umbella
Dorstenia foetida
Encephalartos horridus
Hoya imbricata
Hoya imperialis
Hoya lauterbachii
Hoya obovata
Kalanchoe "pink butterflies"
Kalanchoe beauverdii
Kalanchoe gastonisbonnieri
Cnidoscolus angustidens
Pachypodium namaquanum
Platycerium superbum
Proboscidea parviflora
Puya chilensis
Sauromatum venosum
Solanum pyracanthum
Theobroma cacao

All the best,
