About to finished up Houseplant Swap III and I have decided to host round IV. I will again take names, addresses and list of your haves/wants. Please note that if you list rare or expensive plants you most likely will not receive them. Please do not expect to. I will try to match everyone up with at least one plant on their list. However sometimes this is not possible, so please be open to new ideas as well.
Rules are listed below.
1. Do not sign up if you only want free plants.
2. Minimum number of cuttings/plugs/starts/plants is 4 (this will allow some newbies to join as well) - you may send extras, small gifts if you want, this is completely optional and not a requirement. If you do send extra, please do not be upset if you don't receive extra in return from your buddy.
3. Sign ups will runs until 9/4/06 and I will assign buddies on 5th. To speed things up please send your haves to trade, wantes and mailing info on one email. Thanks.
4. Mailing date will be 9/18 - can mail sooner if you want to. Just make sure ok with your buddy.
5. Post to forum when you pkg is mailed and when you receive.

If you have any questions that are not answered above, please email me. Thanks and hope to host another wonderful trade. Round 1 we had 6 buddies, round 2 we had 14, round 3-11.

I know I have received many interesting plants, so come on join us.

RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

can I get a bit more info on this??? I've had a terrible time trying to find people to take some of my plants from when when I repotted....I have mother-in-law tongues, philodendruns, peace lilies, and not sure what else. But, I've never done this - so need to know more about it


 o
RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Vegabond
As it says on the top of the thread you just say you want to join, send your info to snboyken & she will pair you up with a partner - you will send to one person and someone else will send to you. It's fun because you open up a box of suprises. Minimum send is 4 cuttings, plants etc, I send more but like it says on top not to be upset if you only get 4. I think that most everyone usually send more. Look at the last swap round III and you can see how it went.

RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

I recieved my package from lil_green_thumb today, wow! she sent two cuttings of heart leaf philodenderon, 2 starts of gold pothos, a cutting of purple wandering jew (which I have the green but no purple!) a mum start and then a bunch of little goodies, A resin pot hanger of a little bird, a candle set (which my husband will kiss your feet for that one, he loves candles) a box of plant spikes, pots in a basket, a ceramic daisy wall hanger (pretty sure that is what it is, forgive me if I get it wrong, I don't have a lot of knick knacks on account of the kids) and just the cutest little box that looks like a tiny side table.
so cute! thank you so much!
now I am somewhat red faced here as I sent out cedernests box today, I did not realize you could send those type of things as this is my first swap, wish I had waited now, it would of been fun to pick out those types of things for her. oh well next time!
cedernest here is your confirmation # 0305 0830 0001 2020 5076

Debbiedo,

Your box is on it's way. Conf. # 0306 0302 0005 2296 5988. I know we have traded before so I tried to send some things that were different from last time. Let me know if they arrive ok.

Sharon,
Thanks for the wonderful makeup box for Swap III. you are the best. I got a short sansiverus (spelling?), jade plant, philo brazil cutting, a kalanchoe with fuzzy leaves (never had one of those didn't even know they came with fuzzy leaves), a SWISS CHEESE PLANT ( I have wanted one of these forever, Thank you so much), Prickly Pear cutting, a rubber tree (love it, love it, love it), and a solid green spider plant. Thank you so much. As always trading with you is pure joy.

Jeanette,
Please don't worry about the deadline as you can tell from above I missed it too. Between health problems and money problems In the last few months my world is completely upside down so trust me when I say I know exactly what you mean when you say Life happens. LOL Kayla & I will be on the lookout for the newly arriving plant babies. We can't wait. Until later.

RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

I received my box from Kenkesha and received

Cuban Oregano
Varigated Spider Plant
Peace Lily
Wandering Jew

Although the cuban oregano lost all it's leaves and the wanderng jew split in threes (I'll try to root them) they are all alive and taken care of! Thanks Kenkesha!


 o
RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

squazon,
The Cuban oregano is pretty tough. If the leaves still have their color, they should root. Wandering Jew is so fragile, but easy to root. All had roots at shipping,so try moist soil mix -not just the bagged stuff (let me know if you need details)
Did you get the keychain?


 o
RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Kathi,
Your package arrived last night, Thanks sooo much, everything arrived in perfect condition! I would of posted sooner but we had really strong storms come through last night that knocked our electric out (no internet either).
This weather reminds me of spring! We had hail a little larger than nickel size, and it came down for at least 15 minutes! Severe weather is on the way again tonight, I hope I don't lose the internet again!

This swap was so much fun, I really enjoyed it!

Kathi sent- Christmas cactus, Purple jew, Kalanchoe, Mother of Thousands, "Saturn" violet leaves, Pothos, Basil.
I'll be busy repotting tonight! :)

RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Debbiedo7-- I love everything you sent--and it all looks great!! I will be in heaven potting these up tonight-
My mom used to tell me to never say 'thank you' for plants or they would die--so I will thank YOU for SHARING your plants with me!!! Don't worry about being late--I was late on every box I sent out in Sept.-in fact I sent 2 out and I don't know where they went-because the people I was supposed to send to didn't get them--so then I had to send them out again--too much going on- I am caught up now and am trying to do better this month :)
Thanks again!!
Jeanette
Oops-- almost forgot -- I got
Silver Pink Hoya
Kalancho Tubiflora
Varigated pothos

RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Debbiedo7,

I checked on your box today at the Post Office since even I can't get the number to work. The guy there couldn't even find it on their computer and I even had the receipt there to show him. Please let me know if you received today and just haven't had a chance to post yet. He is going to try and find out what happened with the number not workning. If you haven't gotten it yet they are probably not going to make it. I am going to send you out a fresh one in the morning as I take my son to school. I will post the new conf # when I get back. I am so sorry the new box will be late but maybe it will turn out good and you'll get them both. LOL I hope so. Ok I'm off to pack you a new box.

Hugs,
Lisa & Kayla


 o
RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Ok, starting sign ups today for round 5. We will use the 23rd as last day to send. That gives us a little over two weeks,

Debbiedo, let me know when you receive your pkg so I can close this one out. Hope all enjoyed.


 o
RE: NEW: Houseplant Swap - Round 4

Lisa,
I haven't recievd any box as yet. If you mailed the replacement on friday then maybe it will arrive tomorrow. What is the new confirmation number?
