I have many, many, many of these that I can send for
postage. A book sized box can go for $3.60 first class
and could hold at least 10-12 plants.

Let me know if you are interested,
Louise

Louise,
Very kind of you. I have no room left in my house. I love your hanging pots. Never saw anything like that. Nice thinking on your part.

That tower is supported by a metal rod foundation in the bottom pot which
goes straight up through all the other pots. It was a gift from daughter and
son on Mother's Day a couple of years ago.

ok, I see, now. I first thought that it might be bailing wire strung thru and tied at the top. Great Idea. And most inportant, put to good use.

Hello Louise,

I love that clever idea of the stacked pots also. I saw one on D.Y.I one day and told myself I would make some of them.
It was a very nice Mother's Day gift for certain.

If you still want to share your baby spider plants, I am a taker of your offer.

Here is my home address..

sagehen80@gmail.com Thank you so very much for your generosity. Just tell me how you want to work this.
Should I mail you postage first?

Thanks for your interest in the airplane plants. I have five hanging baskets with
lots of babies and have edged my daylily bed with them. In this zone, they will
die down to the ground and come back in the spring.

I'll take a bag of them to the postoffice, choose one of their boxes, have them
weigh and determine the cost and let you know. I sent a book sized box of cuttings
the other day for $3.65 and the next small box was $5.60. i think it depends a lot
on the distance also.

I'll send a Treemail (on this site) to you with the amount and my address. It helps
me to keep up with contacts easily. Some people have sent cash lately and some sent
a Money order.

Louise

Do you still have the baby airplne plants? I am interested. Prefer to pay with paypal.
I love your stacking pots. Plan to try that in my garden this year.
Thanks for your time. I live in Michigan.

Joe and gram,
Thanks for your interest in the plants. I have three large hanging baskets
in my garden room and each has lots and lots of small plants that I can
share for postage. I don't do Paypal but most people who requested them
just sent cash to cover postage. I send about 10-12 plants in a large padded
envelope (which cost $1) and the postage was $3 for a total of $4. The box
sized postage has increased since my first post in this listing. I can check
on it and let you know if you prefer a small or next sized box instead of the
envelope. Let me know if you want them. How cold are the shipping temps now?

The stacked pots come with a heavy metal rod that has a circle at the bottom
of the lower pot and an upright rod that goes upward through the hole in the
bottom of the other pots. The metal support is invisible when the plants are
there. I think the entire set-up costs about $35 at a garden center and was a
gift for mother's day.

I'm sending my mailing info in a Tree-mail.
have a nice day,
Louise

Yes, I can send the airplane plants.
A brown envelope with 10-12 plants would cost $3 postage
and a small box costs about $5.
If you are interested, please send a Tree-mail for more details.

Thanks, Tallulah,
I have moved them to hanging baskets now. I think I will
plant lettuce, radishes and salad making plants in the pots
this year.
