unkn succulant
cactus pups
african violet leaves-pink ruffley

silver squill

hoya-publicalyx
This has been fun --thanks snyobken for giving me a GREAT partner!!!

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Jeanette,
I'm so glad you liked your plant cuttings! The hoya can be placed directly in soil to root. Or you can do the water method, both are equally the same. Hoyas are so hardy, and thrive (and bloom) on neglect. Your going to love the spider plant Bonnie! It grows such curly leaves that cascade down the pot! I love mine! I pre-rooted the baby in water for a few weeks, so it's ready to go in the soil. I've read that they love unchlorinated water, so let your water sit 24 hours before watering it. If you water it with tap water, brown tips will occur. Spiders also love to be misted.
The unknown succulent was from a trade (Florida), it grows really large and forms a tree like trunk, it also blooms each summer. I have the name written down somewhere in my computer desk. If I find it, I'll let you know. It loves tons of sun and is an indoor plant.
Gotta run, my Daughter's graduating tonight! 8th grade!

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Thanks, Tina

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Update - Current Status

Hummingbirddaisy - I received an email from Baci that he was out of town until Saturday. I am sure he will let us know then if its there when he returns. I have noted you mailed on 6/7 so it should be there when he returns.

Missspoiled25 - I will get a box together for you this weekend as I have not be sucessful in my email attempts to your buddy. I hope all is well with countryfarmgal. Has anyone heard.

The only other box not received was to me from willandtysmom, I have been unsucessful in my email attempts here as well. Most being returned as undeliverable. I hope all is well with willandtysmom. Has anyone heard from her?

Once Baci receives his box and I mail to missspoiled25 this swap will be complete. If anyone is interested we will do a round III.

Thanks for all the participation.

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

I could have swore that i posted what wonderful goodies Sharon (snyboyken) sent me its must be either lost in space or it's just another sign of my old age :-) Anyway, she sent me a lovely Philo Brazil (My fav), a Philo cordium, a golden pothos, a white/green wandering jew, a purple/green wandering jew and a peace lily. Lovely box and they are all potted up and looking very happy. Thank you so much for such lovelies. Sorry about posting so late don't know what happened to the first one. And I would love to do a Round III

Hugs,
Lisa & Kayla

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Hey!! Count me in for round 3!!!
Deb--if you are 'lurking' haha! my little 'Bonnie' is not doing well--any special instructions?? Everything else seems happy!!
Jeanette


 o
RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Jeanette,
Spider plant "Bonnie" is usually so hardy. I've never lost one baby yet. Hmmm? I love using miracle grow coir for most of my houseplants (purchased at any home depot, k-mart, walmart). The mix doesn't dry out as often, due to the coir (I think coconut fiber). Plants seem to be less stressed with this mix.
Spiders love light, not burning direct sun, but bright light. Mist it once a day with water that has been in a spray bottle for at least 24 hrs (to allow the chlorine to evaporate).
I even had them growing soiless in an indoor water fountain and they were doing really well. My guess to why it's not doing so well is either, it's drying out, or not enough sun, or too much sun. When the tips turn brown, it's from chlorinated water, or it's dried out. When the plant turns very pale, too much light, if it's wilted, then blame overwatering, possibly the soil is too heavy, (thick/black soil), the miracle grow coir is a browish mix.

I hope this helped a little. ;)

Deb

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Deb--I do have it in a Miracle Grow medium--haven't been misting tho--just water from the bottom--1 leaf has dropped off-the other 2 are fine so far-no brown tips--I have other spiders and it's with them in bright filtered light--I'll let you know how it does while I baby it along!! Sure hope I don't lose it! Think I will call 'her' 'little debbie' hahahahaha!! I am SO corney!!

RE: update: houseplant swap ii

Eeeewwwwwwwwwwww, if they haven't arrived by now, I can only imagine the shape they will be in when they DO arrive.
I am just going to resend a box. Maybe I sent to the wrong address? Maybe you should resend it to me just incase?
As soon as I get your e-mail with the addy, I will send out another box. Hopefully this one will ARRIVE.
Didn't put any conf. # on the last one. Will do so with this one.

Tina
